Abstract:

Project Purpose: To advance and increase the adoption of cover crop technology by:
1) demonstrating the impact of sunn hemp, oats and buckwheat on the rotational commercial crops: seed corn, tomatoes, papaya, sweet potato, pineapple, row vegetables and coffee and
2) overcoming implementation barriers by quantitatively addressing grower concerns about pests, soil fertility and economic costs and benefits.

Project Deliverables:
1. Fourteen demonstration plantings on the five major agriculture islands.
2. One or more Field Days held at each of the fourteen demonstration sites.
3. Field demonstration of applied cover cropping technology, agronomic and economic assessment of field scale demonstrations, and coordination with the plant materials center to provide materials usable in the FOTG.
4. As the demonstration come on line and data and analysis, posters detailing objectives, status and, outcomes will be available at the Field Days).
5. Publish educational materials and project results at the UH CTAHR’s Sustainable Agriculture website, flyers for Field Days, articles for trade publications/newsletters, and presentations at the biannual AG Conference meeting. Materials from the demonstration will be presented to Pacific Island Area NRCS agronomist and plant materials specialist for inclusion in FOTG as technical reference for practice standards/jobsheets such as Cover Crop, Mulching, Nutrient Management, Pest Management
6. Simplified English technical materials to be translated into Ilocano, Laotian, Tagalog, Chinese, and Korean to support outreach to limited resource and beginning farmers (UH Cooperative Extension publication translated to reach immigrant farmers
7. Video record two Field Days and edit for DVD use at trainings and workshops and at the Hawaii Ag Conference

Project Scope/Location: State of Hawaii: 14, 2-10 acre demonstration sites in various locations on the islands of Oahu, Hawaii, Molokai, Kauai and Maui with balanced emphasis on commercial and family cropping operations.
