Taro Mini-Conference

You are invited to attend “Research Update on New Taro Varieties: Mini-Conference” tomorrow (Tuesday Jan. 11 starting at noon).

In this two-hour event, speakers will cover new taro varieties produced by conventional cross-pollination of taro flowers. The most promising ones were multiplied in tissue-culture, and distributed to CTAHR Research Stations on Hawaiʻi Island, Kauaʻi, Maui, and Molokaʻi. These new varieties were evaluated for yield, quality, and resistance to taro leaf blight.

Please register now for the Taro Mini-Conference.
