Farm Doctor Visits a Taro Farm

Farm Doctor was called out to revisit taro farm in Waipahu. Taro plants had necrotic edges. Suspect potassium, but this area has had high salt issues in the past.

 Samples were collected and submitted to CTAHR ADSC for disease and tissue analysis.
Mite samples were also collected to begin the IR4 process in seeking a miticide for Hawaii's taro industry.
Beautiful day in Waipahu, Oahu
