Project Title: Development of Onion Production Guide for Hawaii

Project Investigators: H. Valenzuela, R. Shimabuku, and R. Hamasaki

Project Goal: To develop a full color comprehensive publication on field onion production with emphasis on integrated pest management of insects and diseases. 

Commercial onion growers need to make numerous managerial decisions when producing and marketing their crop. Hawaii's onion growers will benefit greatly by receiving local research based guidance on selecting the proper variety, pest management alternative, equipment, fertilizer and cultural practices through an Onion Production Guide for Hawaii publication. A systems or integrated management approach will be emphasized throughout the publication. Authors will use local research based information whenever possible in addition to information obtained through literature searches.
