Blueberry Field Day
UHM-CTAHR Volcano Research Station
Tuesday, April 3, 2012
9:30 am to 12:00 pm
Hosts: Andrew Kawabata, Stuart T. Nakamoto and Randy T. Hamasaki

Interested in growing blueberries?  You are invited to visit the UHM-College of Tropical Agriculture and Human Resources (CTAHR) Volcano Research Station for an informal briefing and update of our research in greenhouse blueberry production and to “talk-story”.  Check out the different trials we have including effect of pot size on yield, different blueberry varieties, and pruning methods.  You will also get a chance to sample some of the different blueberry varieties.

The volcano research station is situated less than 8 miles from the Volcano National Park, so vog can be extremely concentrated depending on the wind conditions.  Please take necessary precautions and bring water. Please come prepared for rain and chilly weather too.
Please call Didi at 887-6183 or email to reserve your spot and to receive last minute updates. 

Open to everyone without regard to race, age, sex, color or disability. Educational activities are accessible for individuals with disabilities. For information or to request an auxiliary aid or service (e.g., sign language interpreter, designated parking, or materials in alternate format), contact Didi @ (808) 887-6183 seven days before the activity/event.
