A Case Study in Rapid Response:
Rauvolfia vomitoria

Big Island ranchers identified a new weed problem, Rauvolfia vomitoria, rapidly becoming a pest. Dr. James Leary, CTAHR Invasive Weed Specialist, conducted some herbicide field trials to attempt to quickly contain the infestation. This video describes the problem and shows the methods (broadcast application/spraying, frill and squirt) using triclopyr, imazapyr, and glyphosphate. February 2009.

Koa Forest in Koke'e:
Recovery and Threats

Koa Field Day by Dr. J. B. Friday, CTAHR Extension Forester, and Dr. Travis Idol, CTAHR Associate Professor of Tropical Forestry. A native koa forest that regenerated after hurrince 'Iwa and salvage logging in 1982 is now threatened by invasive species. Koke'e State Park, Kaua'i.

(June 2009)

Koa Regeneration: Hands-free Spraying for Koa Corridors

Dr. James Leary, UH-CTAHR, conducts herbicide trials at Hakalau Forest National Wildlife Refuge to help re-establish critical habitat with Acacia koa vegetative corridors. Leary demonstrates the use of a prototype hands-free backpack sprayer to safely apply herbicide in uneven terrain.
