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 harvest field day is a follow-up event to the Feb. 28th, Mar. 1st, and Jun. 14th pruning and desuckering 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 tour the pruning plot trial and learn about the ease and challenges of coffee harvesting of each pruning technique. Trees in the trial plot were pruned on Feb. 13, 2017 and this is the first comparative harvest.
Speakers include: Dr. Stuart T. Nakamoto and Andrea Kawabata of CTAHR and Dr. Tracie Matsumoto of USDA PBARC
