Adapting aquaponics systems for use in the pacific islands

Ground Rules

  • Respect Others

  • Listen to understand

  • Be clear and concise

  • Avoid side conversations while someone else has the floor

  • Maintain an open and positive attitude

  • Everyone needs to participate (stakeholder input)

  • Put cell phones and pagers on the “Joy” setting

Land Grant College System

  • Universities or colleges that receives the benefits of the Morill Acts of 1862 and 1890 (Education)

  • Hatch Act of 1887 allowed land grant colleges to create agricultural research stations to conduct practical research that would assist farmers (Research)

  • Smith-Lever Act of 1914 results in the cooperative extension services and a mechanism for technology transfer (Extension)

History of the Land Grant College Program in Hawaii

  • The University of Hawaii, founded in 1907, was initially the College of Agriculture and Mechanic Arts with 5 students in 1908.

  • The Land Grant College is now the College of Tropical Agriculture and Human Resources, one of six colleges located on the UH Manoa campus.

“Centennial” – white anthurium bred by UH scientists to celebrate 100th birthday

Classic Example of How a Land Grant College Program Works

Tropic Sunrise

Society of American Florists/2007 Outstanding Varieties Competition.

Drs. Haruyuki Kamemoto and Heidi Kuehnle with “Tropic Fire”. Since 1950 developing disease resistant and novel anthuriums for the flower industry. which helped anthuriums become the state’s most valuable cut-flower crop (farm-gate value of $4.7 million in 2005)
