UH-CTAHR’s Cooperative Extension, USDA ARS’s DKI Pacific Basin Agricultural Research Center and the Hawaii Department of Agriculture welcomes you to an exploratory trial of four different coffee pruning techniques. This workshop is a follow-up event to the Feb. 28th and Mar. 1st pruning field days where the following pruning techniques were demonstrated at the Kona Research Station.
The objective of this pruning trial is to compare the above methods for yield, labor requirements, harvesting considerations and impact on CBB management.
During this field day, participants will watch a demonstration of desuckering techniques on coffee trees pruned in Feb/Mar 2018, and then will be able to tour and walk through the pruning trial. Trees in the trial plot were pruned on Feb. 13, 2017. The first comparative harvest will take place in the 2018-2019 season. Future field days will look at harvest.
Speakers include: Dr. Stuart T. Nakamoto and Andrea Kawabata of CTAHR, and Dr. Tracie Matsumoto of USDA ARS DKI PBARC
