TOTAL LUAU LEAF YIELD (6/98-4/99)
Three Palauan taro varieties (P1, P5, and P10) were being evaluated for luau production under upland conditions in Poamoho with a commercial grower. Disease incidence was very low even in the susceptible variety due to dry winter conditions. The investigator has begun to collect weekly yield data and plans to do so for one year.
