The University of Hawaii proposes to serve as the lead institution for the
humid tropics component of the Soil Management Collaborative Research Support
Program. It will mobilize a mu~ltidisciplinary research team to work
collaboratively with Indonesian scientists on a five-year transmigration project
designed to move 500,000 families from Java and Bali to the sparsely populated
regions of Sumatra, Kalimantan, Sulawesi, and Irian Jaya. This collaborative
effort will be conducted on four transmigration project test farms. The
Indonesian government plans to develop 40 such test farms in the next 20 years.
This CRSP is output- and utiliz ation-oriented. It will produce five
soil-management-oriented and three utilization-oriented outputs. The
soil-management outputs are (1) tree legumes for fuelwood, (2) soil erosion
control, (3) increased yields of better quality food crops, (4) energy-efficient
farming systems, and (5) training of new host-country scientists; the
utilization outputs are (1) increased farmer adoption of yield-increasing
soil-management practices, (2) reduced yield gaps between researchers' plots and
farmers' fields; and (3) transfer of CRSP principles, concepts, and results to
other regions of the humid tropics.
The CRSP's multidisciplinary objectives are based on the assumption that
(1) there is an adequate amount of soil management technology available for
immediate application in the humid tropics and (2) utilization of technically
and environmentally sound soil-management practices is hindered by economic,
social, and administrative constraints.
Increased utilization of soil-management technology will be achieved by
matching the requirements of the innovation to the socioeconomic characteristics
of the farmer.
SOIL MANAGEMENT FOR SUSTAINED
FOOD PRODUCTION IN THE HUMID TROPICS
In a paper presented at the SymIposium on Food Situation and Potential in
the Asian and Pacific Regions held in Taiwan, April 24-29, 1980, Rusli Hakim,
Director of the Central Research Institute for Agriculture (CRIA) of Indonesia,
and Hidayat Natsatmadja, Senior Agricultural Economist also of CRIA, said:
The goal of Indonesia's economic development effort is a great and
prosperous society. The strategy employed to achieve that goal is the
development of a balanced economy in which industry is supported by a sound
agricultural sector. The government has launched Five-Year Development
Programs called 'tEPELITAS" as a mechanism to attain the national goal at a
realistic rate and in an orderly manner. The third Repelita, which began
in April 1979, is guided by a Development Trilogy, namely (1) equal
distribution of income, (2) a reasonable rate of economic growth and
(3) maintaining national stability.
Utilizing the available resources and working within the policy
guidelines, the agricultural development effort is directed toward the
solution of the following critical problems:
1. Increasing both the quantity and the quality of food produced
2. Increasing farm income
3. Increasing employment opportunities
4. Reducing the importation of agricultural commodities
5. Supporting industries processing agricultural products
6. Ensuring productive, sustainable use of natural resources
7. Improving the quality of rural life.
The authors dedicated their paper to the 14 million farmers who doubled
Indonesia's rice production in 15 years, the researchers who provided technology
and guidance, and the policy makers who provided the political will and
Any U.S. institution that enters into collaborative agricultural research
with Indonesia mu~st be aware of the excellence of the Indonesian agricultural
research institutes and the goals and objectives to which they are committed.
If there is a weakness in the system, it is that so few scientists are
being asked to do so mu~ch. Indonesia's Repelitas are immense undertakings that
would strain the scientific capability of the largest and most technically
advanced countries of the world. What is surprising is that the Indonesians
have done so much with so little. In doing so, they have added measurably to
the storehouse of knowledge on management and wise use of humid tropics land.
The Indonesians have a responsibility to share this knowledge with other
countries in the humid tropics. This CRSP enables scientists from the
University of Hawaii and the Indonesian agricultural research institutes to join
forces to learn to more effectively utilize the soils of all the humid tropics
for sustained food production.
The University of Hawaii proposes to serve as the lead U.S. institution for
the humid tropics component of the Soil Management Collaborative Research
Support Program. It will mount a collaborative, multidisciplinary effort with
Indonesian agencies that will result in a timely and effective attainment of
The multidisciplinary, multiagency effort is based on the premise that soil
management is a means to an end. The end is to improve and sustain the health
and welfare of the small farmer, raise the national economy, and secure world
order. The project focuses on soil management, but it is designed to exploit
the full developmental capability of the University to ensure that pro ject
products and outputs are adopted and utilized to fulfill the objectives of the
Collaborative Research Support Program and the goals of the Indonesian
THE HUMID TROPICS
The humid tropics are mainly confined to the region paralleling and
extending 150 north and south of the equator. This agroecological zone covers
large portions of such countries as Ecuador, Colombia, Venezuela, Peru, Brazil,
Bolivia, Surinam, Guyana, Panama, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Honduras,
and Guatamala in the Americas; Liberia, the Ivory Coast, Ghana, Togo, Benin,
Nigeria, Cameroon, Gabon, the Central African Republic, Angola, the Congo,
Zaire, Uganda, Burundi, Rwanda, and Kenya in Africa; and Sri Lanka, Indonesia,
Thailand, Malaysia, Kampuchea, Vietnam, the Philippines, and New Guinea in Asia
and the Pacific.
Even in countries such as Australia and Brazil that employ advanced
agricultural technology, the level of agricultural development diminishes with
increasing proximity to the equator. One reason for the low productivity of the
humid tropics is the poor and fragile quality of the land.
For geologically brief periods, soils developed from freshly deposited
pyroclastic materials or river sediments are rich in nutrients and can support a
diverse plant and animal community. But the nutrient supply is not limitless,
and with prolonged weathering under warm and humid conditions, the soluble
nutrients find their way to rivers and eventually to the sea. What remains on
the landscape is an insoluble residue of highly weathered materials stripped of
the capacity to supply life-sustaining nutrients. These are the extensive,
impoverished lands of the humid tropics. Unless there is a reversal in current
population trends, the nations that own these lands aust eventually learn to use
Statistics indicate that the tropics are blessed with extensive,
underutilized, potentially arable lands, but that they occur some distance from
the population centers. Two notable efforts to move people from populated to
underutilized areas were the establishment of the Federal District in Central
Brazil and Indonesia's transmigration program. There is little doubt that these
efforts would have experienced greater initial successes had the soils upon
which the pioneer farmer found himself been more fertile. A poor farmer can
become rich on fertile land, and a rich farmer can make infertile lands
productive, but a poor farmer on infertile land has little chance of extricating
himself from property's grip. There is at this moment a disproportionate number
of resource-poor farmers enduring marginal lives on the infertile lands of the
What are these infertile lands like? Is there something fundamentally
different about them? What are their soil management problems and what can one
do to rectify them? In short, is there sufficient knowledge about these soils
and their management requirements to mount an effective program that will enable
governments to satisfy the rising expectations of the people who live on them?
In Indonesia these questions are academic, for the government has launched a
5-year program to move 500,000 families from the densely populated islands of
Java and Bali to the sparsely populated regions of Sumatra, Kalimantan,
Sulawesi, and Irian Jaya. For many countries of the humid tropics, the luxury
of time and idle speculation has run out.
CRITICAL ASSUMPTIONS AND PREMISES
The objectives of this proposal are based on the following assumptions and
1. There is adequate soil-management knowledge and technology ready for
immediate application in the humid tropics.
2. Utilization of technically and environmentally sound soil-management
practices is hindered by economic, social, and administrative con-
1. The Soil Management CRSP will be administered as a part of a
m~ultiagency, mu~ltidisciplinary effort performed and conducted in the
context of a farming system.
2. The goals and objectives of the CRSP will measurably contribute to the
attainment of host-country goals and objectives.
3. The products and outputs of the collaborative effort will be mutually
beneficial to Hawaii and Indonesia.
4. The collaborative effort will produce principles, concepts, and results
that will be generally applicable and transferable to other regions of
the humid tropics.
GOAL AND OBJECTIVES
To extricate resource-poor farmers from a lifestyle of subsistence
agriculture so that they can contribute substantially to the national economy.
1. To use land for fuelwood production.
2. To improve and sustain the quality of farmland through conservation
3. To increase the quantity and quality of farm products.
4. To develop a farmer-manageable, energy-efficient farming system.
5. To enlarge the host country's capability to manage lands of the humid
6. To accelerate the adoption rate of yield-increasing soil-management
7. To reduce the yield gap between researchers' plots and farmers' fields.
8. To test the transferability of CRSP outputs from Indonesia to other
countries of the humid tropics.
Crop performance depends on the goodness of fit between crop requirements
and land characteristics. Agronomy is the science of matching crop requirements
to land characteristics to achieve acceptable crop performances. When a mismatch
occurs, scientists either elect to choose plants or alter plant genetics to fit
the plant to a given set of land characteristics. They may also choose to
manipulate the land to meet the crop's needs. Soil management is the purposeful
alteration of land to improve and sustain the goodness of fit between crop
requirements and land characteristics.
A land quality is a complex attribute of soil and climate. A land quality
generally defies direct measurement; it is usually derived from the synthesis of
a number of soil and climate characteristics and their interactions. Land
erodibility, for example, is a land quality that results from interactions of
slope angle, slope length, soil permeability, soil texture and structure, crop
cover, rainfall duration and intensity, and other land characteristics. Because
it is the aggregate of such interactions that determines a land quality, it is
preferable to develop a soil-management strategy on the basis of land qualities
rather than in tenms of individual land characteristics.
About 20 land qualities related to agricultural land use are recognized,
but, in general, four to six key qualities are sufficient to make
soil-management decisions for any land type. Examples of land qualities are:
1. Energy-supplying capacity of land associated with duration and
intensity of daily solar radiation and with temperature
2. Water-supplying capacity of land associated with amount and
distribution of rainfall and with soil-water storage capacity
3. Nutrient-supplying capacity
4. Oxygen-supplying capacity in the root zone
8. Susceptibility to salinization
10. Climatic and pest hazards
Because land qualities associated with climate are not readily altered by
man, crops adapted to a particular agroclimatic zone are first selected to
minimize mismatches between crop and land.
In the humid tropics, mismatches in the root zone toxicitiess, acidity,
nutrient deficiencies) severely restrict crop performance. Although mismatches
may be minimized by judicious plant selection, few plants of economic importance
do well without human intervention. The decision to intervene hinges on
knowledge of cause-and-effect relationships between land manipulation and crop
performance. Knowledge of these relationships implies that one can either
measure land parameters to predict mismatches or diagnose crop indices to
identify land constraints. Although there are still knowledge gaps, a great
deal is known about the management of humid-tropic soils. The problem is not
lack of knowledge, but the failure of soil scientists to seek the help that
would enable their discoveries to be used in an effective way.
All mlismatches are manifested in plants as stresses. Insects, weeds, and
pathogens add to plant stress so that the cause-and-effect relationships between
soil constraints and crop performance are clouded by a host of other variables
unrelated to soil. Insects, weeds, and plant pathogens, however, like the crop
they affect, perform best in well-defined agroecological zones. Downy mildew of
maize, for example, is a serious pest in the warm and humid lowlands of Sumatra,
but is virtually nonexistent in the cool uplands of Java.
The key to soil management is the stratification of agroenvironments into
land units with a predictable and manageable number of soil constraints. This
stratification of agroenvironments serves to organize the accumulated knowledge
of the cause-and-effect relations between soil constraint and crop performance.
It renders problem identification easier and contributes to economy of thought
An orderly stratification of soil-management information by land type and
by agroecology is essential for training of new scientists, for delivery of
appropriate corrective measures to each site, and for discovery of new
relationships between land and crop performance. In addition, such
stratifications both minindze trial-and-error methods to find causes of
mismatches and add to the transferability of proven practices to other regions
with similar land qualities.
If soil-management practices must relate to land qualities and crop
requirements, they must also relate to the resource characteristics of the
farmer. It is in this latter area that the Soil Management CRSP can untke its
greatest contribution. In order for soil scientists to succeed where they have
failed, they must solicit the help of scientists whose primary interests lie in
the cultural and resource characteristics of the small farmer. A multi-
disciplinary effort is essential for increasing the adoption rate of soil-
management recommendations and for reducing the yield gap between the
researchers' plot and farmers' fields. A key role of the social scientists is
to assess the factors that influence adoption of innovations and to analyze the
causes of yield gaps. Scientists at the International Rice Research Institute
and the International Crops Research Institute for the Semi-Arid Tropics conduct
"gap analysis" to obtain estimates of the economically recoverable yield gap.
Gap analysis also serves as a feedback mechanism to alert scientists to ways of
rendering soil and crop management innovation more acceptable to the small
The University of Hawaii will employ multidisciplinary gap analyses to
foster communication between the developer and users of soil-management
technology. It hopes to minimize scientific tunnel vision through a system of
checks and balances arising from honest, interdisciplinar~I. diff~erences_0ff
opinion. The expectation is that a CRSP based on gap analysis will foster
The University is aware that poorly designed CRSP projects can disrupt and
burden existing host-country programs. To avoid these pitfalls, the University
proposes to perform its CRSP activities within existing host-country programs.
Subject to approval by the Indonesian government, the University proposes to
work collaboratively with Indonesian scientists in four test farms; planned for
initiation in 1980 under a new 5-year transmigration program (Pelita III,
1979-1984). The number of test farms is expected to reach 40 in the next 20
years. It is expected that by conducting CRSP work on existing research sites,
the start-up time will be shortened and program continuation at the end of the
CRSP will be assured.
Between June 24 and July 11, 1980, Indonesia's Soil Research Institute and
the University of Hawaii's Benchmark Soils Project conducted a joint training
workshop on Soil Taxonomry and Agrotechnology Transfer in Bogor.* At that tinie,
representatives of the Soil Research Institute and the University of Hawaii met
to identify Soil Management CRSP activities.
The Indonesian representatives requested that the following activities be
included in the Soil Management CRSP, and the University identified the
following participating scientists:
1. Biological nitrogen fixation
a. Crop aspect (Jake Halliday)
b. Soil aspect (Ben Bohlool)
2. Biomass productivity of tropical legume trees for fuelwood
3. Control of rainfall erosion (Samir E1-Swaify)
4. Green manures (Russell Yost)
5. In-country agrotechnology transfer (Jamies Silva)
*See Appendix 1 for workshop program.
6. Mycorrhiza (Russell Yost)
7. Soil fertility evaluation (Robert Fox)
A brief description of ongoing University of Hawaii efforts on each of the
above topics is provided in Appendix 2, and curriculum vitae of participating
scientists are given in Appendix 3.
On July 18, 1980, the Dean of the College convened a meeting of University
scientists to finalize the University's CRSP. At this meeting, the group
recommended that the Soil Management CRSP be supplemented with supporting
activities that would ensure full utilization of CRSP outputs. The followJing
supporting activities and participating scientists were identified:
1. Cropping systems research (Jerry McIntosh*)
2. Food crops and human nutrition (Robert Van Reen)
3. Integrated pest management (Wallace Mitchell)
4. Assessment and control of insect-borne human diseases in transmigration
areas (Elmo H~ardy)
5. Resource systems analysis for small farms (Jaw-Kai Wang)
6. Social science and human resources (Joe O'Reilly)
7. Economics of small farm operations (Shelley Mlark)
The University therefore sees the CRSP as consisting of two interrelated
parts. The first part consists of scientists who are responsible for designing
and installing soil-management experiments to demonstrate that it is technically
possible to use the lands of the humid tropics for intensive food and fuel
production in a manner thlat is environmentally safe. A second group will work
to ensure that what is technically possible and environmentally sound is also
socially desirable and economically feasible.

to Indonesia and is currently on a one-year leave at the University of Hlawaii.
OUTPUTS /ACTIVITIES /INPUTS
The Indonesia-Hawaii Soil Management CRSP is designed to generate eight
outputs. They are:
1. Tree legumes for fuelwood
2. Soil erosion control
3. Increased yields of better quality food crops
4. Energy-efficient farming systems
5. Training of new host-country scientists
6. Increased farmer adoption of vield-increasing soil-management practices
7. Reduced yield gaps between researchers' plots and farmers' fields
8. Transfer of CRSP principles, concepts, and results to other regions
in the humid tropics.
Inputs and activities corresponding to each output are described below.
1. Tree legunies for fuelwood.
Fuelwood and charcoal, the principal energy sources of many small farmers,
have become increasingly scarce and expensive. Assessment of soil and climatic
requirements of fast-growing tree legume~s--notably species of Acacia, Albigia,
Calliandra, Leucaena, and Sesbania--will be conducted. They will be evaluated
for fuelwood productivity, space requirements, growth rates, and wood properties
(density, moisture content, combustion value). They will also be evaluated for
leaf biomass and nitrogen content for use as forage or green manure. The trees
will also be an integral part of the soil erosion work.
This effort is related to an SEA/USDA-financed Tropical Legume Tree project
(outgrowth of McIntyre-Stennis Project 803). Collaborative international
Leucaena trials now include a network of sites in H~awaii, Taiwan, Thailand, Sri
Lanka, and Malaysia (Sabah). Similar materials and experimental trials are used
in all sites. This network can be readily extended to Indonesia's humid tropics
and the work will focus on Acacia mangium and Calliandra callothyrsus--species
more suited to the humid tropics.
Inputs for this activity include salaries for senior scientists (.50) and
junior scientists (1.00), travel and per diem, and supplies for installing and
monitoring field experiments.
2. Soil erosion control.
A recently completed state-of-the-art study* on soil erosion in the tropics
indicates that rainfall erosivity in Indonesia's humid tropics may be as high as
eight times that of the highest erosivity value in the continental United States
In this CRSP effort, catchment, subcatchment, and runoff plots will be
selected, surveyed, and instrumented with raingauges, runoff waterstages, and
sediment-sampling and -storag~e devices. Two sets of plots will be required--one
for standard tests of causative erosion parameters and the other for imposing
land and crop-management treatments. The erosion-control treatments will be
integrated with the fuelwood and green manure cover-crop experiments.
This CRSP effort is related to an ongoing University of Hawaii soil erosion
project (Project 165) entitled, "Conservation-effective small farms on tropical
Inputs for this activity include salaries for senior scientists (.50) and
junior scientists (1.00), travel and per diem, computer tinie for data storage
and analysis, and instrumentation.
3. Increased yields of better quality food crops.
Hligh yields of nutritious food crops can be obtained in the humid tropics,
but the input requirements are often too high and inappropriate for the
resource-poor farmer. In the impoverished soils of the humid tropics, some
input is unavoidable. The high costs of these inputs, however, are avoidable.
H~igh costs can be avoided by reducing input losses through soil erosion control,

increasing soil nitrogen levels through biological nitrogen fixation and green
manures, substituting low-cost phosphate rock for costly superphosphates,
increasing phosphorus utilization with mycorrhiza, judicious selection of
adapted, palatable crops, and minimizing crop losses through a program of
integrated pest management. All these activities must be conducted in harmony
with a cropping system and in the context of a farming system. The cropping
system nmust exploit, to the fullest, seasonal changes in light, water, and
nutrient supply. The products of the cropping system must be palatable,
nutritious, and/or marketable. In the context of a farming system, the farm
products must serve not only as food, but as fiber, fuel, fodder for draft
animals, poultry, fish, and small ruminants, building materials, and income.
The farmer may never learn the role of mycorrhiza or rhizobia in agriculture,
but these components mu~st be built into a farmer-manageable farming system.
This CRSP effort will consist of two parts. The first part involves the
testing of the components of the cropping systems (e.g., the testing of a new
rice or cowpea cultivar, or the testing of a new phosphate-rock formulation).
The second part involves the inclusion of the component into the cropping
Related activities include integrated pest management, soil and tissue
testing for plant-nutrient availability, assessment of food composition and
bio-availability, and monitoring of weather to account for pests, crop
performance, and food quality.
Inputs needed for this effort are salaries for senior scientists (.50) and
junior scientists (1.00), travel and per diem, soil and tissue analysis, studies
of food composition and bio-availability, and weather-monitoring instruments
(solar radiation, pan evaporation, air and temperature, relative humidity, wind
direction and speed, and rainfall).
4. Energy-efficient farming systems.
As an OPEC country, Indonesia can produce urea in large amounts. The
resource-poor farmers in remote transmigration areas, however, do not have
access to this nitrogen supply. Even if the situation were to change, the
resource-poor farmer would be better off to exploit biological nitrogen fixation
than to spend his limited income on urea. Legumes are valued components of
Indonesian farming systems, with soybean, peanut, mungbean, and cowpea being
The primary emphasis of this CRSP effort will be the establishment of
effective nitrogen-fixing symbioses in legumes by rhizobia that are adapted to
soil acidity, competitive against less-effective native rhizobia, and persistent
in the soil to which they are introduced. The need for inoculation can be
judged by testing for response to urea and the extent to which an effective
symbiosis with Rhizobium can substitute for nitrogen fertilizer.
The nitrogen economy from effective symbiosis affects the energy budget of
the farming system through leguminous fuelwood trees that also serve to control
erosion, through cover crops that serve as green manures and fodder for animals,
and through grain legumes that are consumed by the farm family.
This CRSP effort is related to a major ongoing University program on
Nitrogen Fixation by Tropical Agricultural Legumes (NifTrlL Project). Other
related activities are conducted under projects on m~ycorrhiza and green manures.
Inputs for this effort include salaries for senior scientists (.50) and
junior scientists (1.00), travel and per diem, equipment for a pilot inoculant
plant for Indonesia, and supplies and analytical services for assessing rhizobia
5. Training of new host-country scientists.
Each CRSP output will have a training component. The junior scientist
positions allocated to each CRSP output will be filled by graduate students who
will complete their academic work at the University of Hawaii under the
supervision of senior scientists assigned to the CRSP. All field work will be
conducted in Indonesia.
Two-thirds of the junior positions will be filled by Indonesians and the
remaining positions will be assigned to American students and foreign students
from countries in the humid tropics.
All non-Indonesian students will be required to take Indonesian language
courses offered in the Department of Indo-Pacific Languages. While in Indonesia
the junior scientists will work to achieve CRSP objectives under the supervision
of senior scientists assigned to Indonesia.
Inputs for this CRSP effort include language trainers (English as a second
language, Indonesian), workshops, training materials, training officers (.25),
and on-campus graduate training.
6. Increased farmer adoption of yield-increasing soil-management practices.
It is very likely that a number of suitable tree species for fuelwood
will be identified, that measures for erosion control will be developed, that
higher yielding, nutritious and palatable crops will be identified, and that an
energy-efficient farming system will .emerge from this CRSP. But the true
measure of success will hinge on the adoption of CRSP outputs by the farmer.
During the course of the CRSP, every effort will be made to assess the likes,
dislikes, needs, and resource characteristics of the farmer. This will enable
the researcher to tailor his outputs to the farmer's needs and capabilities. If
a resJearch output ~ris reectdbyth farmer, the researcher must find the reason
for the rejection. For example, will the odor of a particular fuelwood reduce
its usefulness and acceptability as a cooking fuel? Will the drudgery of
monitoring a complex cropping system be sufficient cause for a farmer to
reject an otherwise technically sound design? By the same token, can a rejected
soil-management practice be rendered acceptable by modifying the farmer's
implements to match the management requirements? Who will live among the
farmers to sense their needs? And who will respond to the challenge of
fabricating the appropriate implement that will set the CRSP right?
The CRSP canl achieve its objectives by mixing graduate student idealism
with faculty experience. This CRSP effort requires the commitment not only of a
University administration but also of its students and faculty. It is this
combined commitment that the University of Hlawaii offers to the Soil Mlanagement
CRSP. It does so with the full appreciation that the principles and concepts of
this CRSP will apply equally well in the humid tropics of Indonesia or Hawaii.
In this CRSP) effort, University of Hawaii social scientists will work with
indigenous social scientists to assess the needs of the farmer, the farm family,
and the community. The social scientists' task has been made easier by the fact
that the transmigration program makes every effort to keep people of similar
cultural background together and to locate them in familiar agroenvironments. A
major role of the social scientists will be to measure the farmers' capacity to /i
absorb farming innovations. Another important function of the social scientist
will be to relay farmer reactions to the soil management specialists.
Inputs for this CRSP effort include salaries for senior scientists (.50)
and junior scientists (1.00), travel and per diem, computer time, and supplies
for conducting farm surveys.
7. Reduced yield gaps between researchers' plots and farmers' fields.
Mismatches)between the recEiquirements' of an innovation and the socioeconomic
characteristics obf a farmer result in yield gaps between researcher plots and
farmer fields. Gap analysis, a systematic study of this discrepancy, provides a
means to assess the economically recoverable gap and serves as a feedback
mechanism to warn researchers of defects in their innovations.
Yield gaps may also arise from poor community health, which may be related
to inadequate nutrition or widespread insect-borne diseases such as malaria,
dengnue haemorrhagic fever, filariasis, and scrub typhus. For example,
shistosomiasis is hyperendemic and out of control in the Lindu Valley of
Sulawesi. The health of the draft animal is also crucial to the success of a
farm. Surra is the major devastating disease of large animals in Indonesia.
The interdependence of farm operations demands that gap analysis be conducted in
the context of a farming system.
This CRSP effort will utilize systems analysis to optimize farm operations
and to identify bottlenecks. If the overall farm operation is constrained by
availability of credit, size of farm, transportation, markets, or public health,
each constraint must be evaluated so that the contributions of soil-management
inputs may be measured.
Inputs for this CRSP effort include salaries for senior scientists (.50)
and junior scientists (1.00), travel and per diem, computer time, and supplies
for farm surveys.
8. Transfer of CRSP principles, concepts, and results to other regions
in the humid tropics.
The. returns on research investment can be greatly increased by designing a
CRSP that produces principles, concepts, and results that apply not only in
Indonesia but also to the humid tropics in general. The Soil Research Institute
of Indonesia is currently involved in testing the degree to which agrotechnology
may be transferred among widely separated locations having similar soils and
climate. In order to transfer agrotechnology to sites with slightly different
soils or climate, the cause-and-effect relationships between crop performance
and land qualities need to be established.
Under this CRSP effort, selected outputs will be introduced to Hawaii from
Indonesia to test the transferability of CRSP outputs. The transfer will be
made on the basis of similar land qualities and knowledge of the dependence of
crop performance on land qualities.
The University of H-awaii will provide experimental space in the Kohala
District of the Island of H~awaii for this CRSP effort. Other inputs include
salaries for senior scientists (1.00) and junior scientists (1.00), interisland
travel and per diem, supplies for conducting agronomic trials, and instruments
for monitoring weather.
The Principal Investigator will have overall responsibility for the proper
conduct of the project. Both the Dean of the College of Tropical Agriculture
and Human Resources and the Director of the Hawaii Institute of Tropical
Agriculture and H~uman Resources and their staffs will provide administrative
support to facilitate project activities. The project will have access to the
full research capability of the University and will seek assistance from
relevant disciplines through scholarly exchange of ideas without fee.
The day-to-day project operations will be assigned to a Project Manager,
who will be assisted by a Project Accountant and a Project Secretary. Part-time
student help will be used to accommodate periods of heavy workloads. The
Project Manager (.50), Accountant (.50), and Secretary (1.00) will be salaried
members of the Project.
The University will provide office, storage, and laboratory space. The
project will be located in Krauss Hall on the University of Hiawaii campus in
Manoa. A computer terminal links the office to the main University computer and

AN INTRODUCTION TO
THE COLLEGE OF TROPICAL AGRICULTURE ANTD IUMAN RESOURCES
OF THE~ UNIVERSITY OF HAWAII AT MANOA
The University of Hawaii at Manoa (UHM)
The University of Hiawaii is a nrulticampus system of higher education
serving the State of Hawaii. It includes the University of Hlawaii at Manloaa (the
major campus with undergraduate and graduate instructional programs, major
research institutes and programs, and organized, public-service programs), Hilo
College and West Oahu College (each with four-year bachelor's degree programs),
and seven two-year community colleges (four on the island of Oabu and one each
on the islands of Maui, Kauai, and H~awaii). Total enrollment on all campuses of
the system approaches 43,000 with approximately 21,000 on the Mlanoa Campus.
The University of Hawaii at Manoa (UHIM) includes six colleges and six;
schools: the School of Architecture; the College of Arts and Sciences; the
College of Business Administration; the College of Education; the College of
Engineering; the College of Health Sciences and Social Welfare (which includes
the School of Medicine, the School of Nursing, the School of Public Health, and
thte School of Social Work); the School of Law; and the College of Tropical
Agriculture and Hluman Resources (CTARR). The Manoa Campus is both a Land Grant
and a Sea Grant institution.
The College of Tropical Agricul~ture and Human Resources (CTAHRK)
The College of Tropical A~griculture and Human Resources (CTA~R\) at the
University of Hlawaii at Manoa is the only United States Land Grant College of
Agriculture located in the tropics. The College consists of approximately 215
members in academic departments and in extension. There are 14 academic
departments: Agricultural Biochemistry, Agricultural Engineering, Agricultural
and Resource Economics, Agronomy and Soil Science, Animal Sciences, Botany,
Entomology, Fashion Design, H~om~e Economics, Horticulture, Hluman Developm~ent,
Plant Pathology, Food and Nutritional Scielnce, and Food Science and Technology.
(Reorganization of the Human Resoulrces and Food Science programs is currently
underwny. ) The College offers the Bachelor of Science in Tropical Agricullture
and in Human Resources Development; the M~aster of Science in Agricultural
Economics, Agricultural Engineering, Agronom~y and Soil Sciecce, Anima~l Sciences,
Entomology, Food Science, H~orticulture, and Nutrition; and the Ph.D. in
Agricultural Economics, Agronomy and Soil Science, Entomology, Hlorticul~ture, and
Food Science and Hluman Nutrition. Presently, the College has 1424 students,
1156 undergraduates and 268 graduate students. Of UHMI graduate students,
representing 36 countries, 41l% are studying agriculture. Of foreign students in
CTAllR (138), 80% come from Asian and Pacific countries.
The Haw\Yaii Institute of' Tropical Algricul~ture and Hluman R~esources (RIITAHR-1)
CTAHR~'s research arm, the Hawaii Institute. of Tropical Ag~riculture and
HIuanc Resour~ces (IllTt~llR), has been developed through the Land-G;rant Collcige
system! and is supported by federal and state funds. Figure 1 indicates thec
location of branch experiment stations on four of the major islands in the
State, with 18 field sites scattered across the island chain (Appendix A
summarizes the climatic and research problem areas covered at each station).
Due to the diversity of environmental conditions, HITAHR can research both
temperate and tropical crops and farming practices. The Institute has the
capability and professional expertise to conduct basic, applied, and
mission-oriented research in the many fields of tropical and subtropical
agriculture. The field research programs are also utilized to train
undergraduates and graduate students, Peace Corps volunteers, and visiting
specialists in Tropical Agriculture.
HITAHR also runs the College's Agricultural Technical Services Center, a
support program for basic research and extension for faculty, graduate students,
and commercial agricultural enterprises. To reduce crop losses, center
personnel are available for consulting on agricultural problems, collection of
analytical data, and soil, insect and disease diagnosis. On-the-job training
opportunities in applied research are offered at all the center units.
With its primary focus on improvement of tropical agriculture and thle
enhancement of quality of life in the Pacific Region, HITAHIR sponsors a wide
range of research projects with particular relevance to tropical crops such as
taro, papaya, banana, tropical pastures, tropical animal production, tropical
fruits and vegetables, and related pests and diseases. A listing of selected
ongoing research project focusing on tropical crops and pests is available upon
The Hawaii State Cooperative Extension Services (CES)j
In addition to HITAHR~'s experiment stations and Manoa research facilities,
CTAHR boasts an exceptionally strong and effective outreach program in the
Hawaii State Cooperative Extension Service (CES). Inis program has proven to be
effective in Hawaii's multicultural, multi-island tropical community. It is a
unique education process in which citizen input into -programming decisions is
highly visible. It is "grassroot" oriented and responds readily to local
community needs and to state and national needs. The staffing pattern of
subject-matter specialists, county extension agents, home economists, and
program assistants reflects a system capable of interacting with clientele and
public agencies at various programmning levels.
Currently, CES program objectives focus upon the areas of agriculture,
natural resources, home economics, food and nutrition, youth development, and
community resource development. The prograns are implemented through various
individual and group teaching methods and are designed to reach socioeconomiic
groups throughout Hlawaii's multicultural commnity. In-service training
capabilities are an important component of the CES program. CES links with the.
USDA and the Land Grant System are important, particularly as they relate to
CTAIHR's International Agricultural Training Program
The International Agricultural Training Program, established in 1971,
provides seminars, field training, and in-service field training i17n agriculture
f or qualii fied f ore ign nt i onals of agri cul tu ral middle-ma nagement level, t o
promote thle general. interests of international exchange. The program
encompasses training in agricultural production and marketing to provide the
tools of experience, self-confidence, and innovative skills in order to upgrade
agricultural lifestyles and to contribute to the development of a firmer
industrial base to strengthen the visitor's national economy. The program is
sponsored by CTAHIR in cooperation with local host farmers, the U.S. Department
of State, the Japanese Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry, the Department of
Labor of the Philippines, and other international agencies.
The training program has developed an extremely workable structure for
handling 40 trainees per year working with host farmer volunteers and CTAHTR
extension agents. Through this program, CTAHR staff have obtained a wealth of
experience with foreign agriculturalists, and the College has established a
network of graduates throughout the Pacific Basin.
Additional research and training programs are sponsored by CTAHR's Off ice
of International Agricultural Programs. These programs can be designed to neet
the special requirements of recipient countries, drawing upon the research,
teaching, and extension expertise of CTAlHR and other UHMT units. Programs have
been conducted in Hawaii and in recipient countries, working with in-country and
international agricultural research and financial institutions, agribusiness,
and entrepreneurs. CTAHR has conducted programs with collaborating countries in
most of Asia and the islands of the Pacific Basin, as well as in Europe, Africa,
and Latin and South America. The following list covers collaborative countries
from 1971 to 1979:
Australia Bangladesh Brazil
Canary Islands El Salvador England

CTAR-R International Experineces
CTAHIR faculty have an impressive record of international, experience. Table
1 provides an- incomplete listing of faculty international travel since 1960, by
country, number of separate visits listings~s, and total muonths spent in the
country by CTAIIR personnel. The 52 countries have been grouped into eight
geographical regions; as can be noted, CTAH~R profressional activities are
generally oriented around the Pacific Islands, Southeast Asia, and East Asia.
CTAHR administrators and faculty have traveled, conducted research and training
program, consulted and participated in seminars and professional society
meetings in Asia and thle Pacific Islands, and worked closely with the
International A agricultural Research Centers--particu larly IRRI, AVRDC, and
ICRISAT. ther College has provided directors an1-d nu~trition1 consultants toi
numerous national and international organizations for assignmecnt to the Pacific
A~rea. Recenltly, CTAHRI staff hacve worked with the World Bank, The Asia
Development Bank, USAID, ISEC, SPC, UNDP, the Thai, Indonesian, and Philippine
governments, and numerous foundations and institutes. The College has
participated in numerous international agricultural development programs. Table
2 summarizes some of the more recent progranls. Of these, perhaps the most
noteworthy are the Benchmark Soils Project, NifTAL, the Kasetsart University
Program, the Hlawaii-G~uam extension program, and the new University of the South
Benchmark Soils Project: CTAHR, through its Benchmark Soils Project (BSP), is
involved in major international research on soil management and resource
planning of tropical soils, with 23 experimental sites located in Brazil,
Camneroon, Hawaii, Indonesia, the Philippines, and Puerto Rico, which are managed
and operated by people of various ethnic groups and nationalities. BSP aims to
determine scientifically the transferability of agroproduction technology among
tropical and subtropical countries based on the soil family classification; to
assist tropical countries in assessing the potential of upland areas for
intensive soil management; and to demonstrate the value of soil and land
classification in formu~lating agricultural development plans in selective
The Benchmark Project has suggested that land use and soil management are
similar for similar levels of crop production on these soils, indicating that
data available in CTAHR files may be applied to soils found in similar
agroclimatic zones. The governments of Indonesi~a and the Philippines have
indicated support for the Project's concepts and have initiated soil
classification based on Soil Taxonomy to facilitate the transfer of research
results to farmers' fields. A model of a computerized soil and crop data bank
is being developed by the Project, which later will assist Asian and Pacific
Island countries who may want information on a similar system of storage and
NifTAL: As part of a major effort in understanding soil management in the
tropics, CTAHR's project on "Nitrogen Fixation in Tropical Agricultural Legumes"
(NifTAL) is coordinating the establishment of an international network of
legume-inoculant trials. Since tropical soils in general are deficient in
nitrogen, the inability of the LDC farmer to provide adequate nitrogen to his
crops has been found to be one of the major causes of low productivity. NifTAL
seeks to assist the LDC farmer by increasing nitrogen availability while
reducing the need for expensive oil-based nitrogen fertilizers.
Kasetsart University Program: In the Kasetsart-CTAHR program, 17 college
faculty worked in Thailand providing technical and advisory assistance in the
following areas: agricultural economics, agrononiy and soils, animal science,
entomology, fishecries, horticulture, university administration, veterinary
science, extension methods, food processing, forestry, home economics, plant
pathology, and poultry science. The program did ~uich to strengthen a
professional bond between Thailand and UHMi~, which has been continued through
programs with CTAHR's Department of Food and Nutritional Sciences, and UHM's
School of MEldicine, among others.
RANWAII-G~UAM Extension Program: The H~awlil-Guam E~xtension Service relationship
has been in operation~ since 1863; H~awati extension staff has carried out
training programs for Guam gents and farmers since that: time. Some of thle
topics covered were: small tractors and spraying: equipment, poultry, swine, and
vegetable production; macrketing and distribution; plant and animal disease
identification and control; farmer cooperatives; and program and staff
development for extension education. The close relationship between the two
institutions through the years has resulted in continuing informal contacts
between Guam faculty and their counter-parts in Hlawaii.
The University of the South Pacific REE Project: In July of 1980, the
University of the South Pacific (USP), CTAZHR, and the United States Agency for
International Development (USAID) signed a $3.5 million, 5-year, renewable
agreement: to improve research, education, and extension capabilities in the 11
countries of the South Pacific region. CTAHR and other US collaborators will
provide technical assistance to USP's school of agriculture at Alafua, Western
Samoa, as well as program support for regional diagnostic services and extension
training throughout the South Pacific Islands. USAID is also financing
scholarships and fellowships to expand the region's pool of trained
agriculturalists and is encouraging thle development of satellite-linked
Other CTAHR Projects: CTAHR researchers have amassed considerable information
on the proper management of nitrogen in tropical soils including the need for
specific types of nitrogen fetilizers, method of application, placement,
frequency of application, relative efficiency of application, and thie relative
cost and return from the use of different nitrogen fertilizers and nanagement
An active soil- and tissue-testing program conducted at CTAHR relates the
fertility status of the soil with the management needs of crops grown on these
soils. This program has been very effective in determining the soil fertility
management needs of soils in H-awaii and several different Pacific nations. In
addition, CTAHR researchers investigating specific nuvtrient needs in soil
management have found that initial, relatively high~ requirements for fertilizer
application depends more upon the soil than the crop.
The water-holding capacity, the ability of the soil to supply water to
plants, and the consumptive use of water for various crops on different tropical
soils have been determined by CTAHIR researchers. These data in turn indicate
the need for irrigation and the amount and frequency of application of water.
Experimlents1 data area also available on the efficiency of irrigation methods on
different tropical soils, which is particularly important for water-shiort islan-d
The erodibility of different soil orders under differing intensities and
duration of rainfall has been determined by CTAHR investig-ators, which increases
the chance of protecting fragile island topsoils from devastating erosion. A
list of plants suitable for soil protection under different cropping systems has
been and is being further developed at this time.
Management information regarding the selection, establishment, and
maintenance of windbreaks or barriers for the protection of soil, crops, humans,
and animals has been developed by CTAHRK staff for tropical conditions.
Mlanageme~ntt information for specific crops is available i~n the area of
sugar-cane, pincnapple, corn, swoot corn, frorag:e and feed crop~s, root
crops--esp~ecially taro and sweet potatoes, legumecs, green mannure and cover
crops, crop~s for fuclwJood, vegetable crops, fruit and not crops, folinge and
flower crops, ornamentals, and many miscellaneous crops.
Cultural Understanding of Pacific Basin Communities
Hawaii is unique in the cultural diversity of its residents. The rich
cross section of ethnic groups, with their varied sociocultural needs and
behavioral styles provides an exceptionally valuable environment for social
researchers and serves as an excellent training ground for developing cross
cultural awareness. Additionally, the presence in Hawaii of large numbers of
Asian and Pacific Island immigrants, as well as the historical significance of
the Japanese, Chinese, and indigeneous H-awaiian people, provides a degree of
comfort and familiarity with non-WJestern customs, practices, and foods that
cannot be matched anywhere else in the United States.
HawJaii's geographic, climatic, and soil conditions augment the cultural,
lifestyle, land use, and family structure similarities between Hawaii and thle
other Pacific Basin countries. In many ways Hawaii shares the conditions of
most developing countries, including transportation and management concerns,
pocket markets, culturally and geographically isolated communities, small-scale
food processors and diversified farms, and even large-scale plantations and
processing plants (sugarcane and pineapple). Considerable research in these
areas by agricultural economists, ecologists, and human resources development
specialists has been supported by HIITAHR. Studies of small farming systems,
home economics, decision making, youth group development, family parenting
needs, and women entrepreneurs are among those accomplished within the local
Through the numerous research and training programs sponsored by CTAH-R's
International Office, faculty have had exposure to a broad range of foreign
nationals. Simple farmers and conglomerate managers have worked with their
Hawaii counterparts and advisors on training and consulting programs. A steady
stream of visiting colleagues and dignitaries expose CTAHIR faculty to the
latest issues in international affairs and agricultural issues. Coupling this
rich exposure with the familiarity of working side by side with Pacific Island
and Asian students, visiting colleagues and staff in the College have provided
an environment for the development of cultural awareness unmatched by any other
U.S. University. Also, several UHMT research units which are engaged in
sociocultural research and the development of imiproved cultural understanding of
Pacific Island communities work closely with CTAHR:'s staff of applied social
scientists. Th-ese units include CTAHRR's Hluman Resources Development Research
Laboratory, the Social Science Research Institute, the Curriculum Research and
Development Group, and the Institutes of the East-Wdest Center.

Give a brief description below of your international interests, expertise, and
significant international publication and papers. Please indicate groups of pests
and crops involved.
My primary international interest and expertise is in tropical entomology, in
problem solving based upon accurate diagnosis and effective utilization of the
various insect control technologies. Expertise has been with economic entomology
;primarily,tephritid fruit flies (Dacus dorsalist D. cucurbitae, Ceratitis capitata)
in the south pacific, Bonin Islands, Volcano Islands, Mariana Islands, TRust Territory
of the Pacific, Insect pests of macadamia, papaya in Australia. Mediterranean
Fruit Fly in all the Central American Countries'and P~anamai. Vegetable insect pests
in the Trust ~Territory of the Pacific. Also have worked on insect yests ( of turf,
bananas, orchids, and other tropical ornamental plants.
I have been involved with numerous train~ing programs for participants from developing;
countries at the University of Htawaii, East West Center and in several countries.
The programs were in integrated pest management, pesticide safety, sterile insect
fly release control programs etc. I have hzsearch, extension and instructional
experience in entomology at the University of Hawaii, Iowa State University and
South Dakota State College.

CURRICULUM VITAE OF ROBERT VAN REEN (Continued)
A. Experiences in Foreign Countries
1. Interdepartmental Commir~ttee on Nutrition for National Defense (ICNND)
1959 Laboratory Director of the ICNNDi Nutrition Survey of South
Vietnam. This survey consisted of clinical, biochemical and dietary
evaluations to assess the nutritional status of the South Vietnamese
military and civilian populations. I was directly responsible for all
laboratory aspects of the study. WIe established a laboratory in Saigon,
then set up and tested the chemical procedures for several substances
including: serum vitamins A and C, lb, Ht, urinary vitamins 51 and B2
and N-mcethylni coti~namide. Some special procedures;, such as vitamin C
loading tests were also carried out. Approximately 600 individuals
were evaluated biochemically during our three-month survey. I also was
involved in the preparation of the survey report.
1961-1963 T was appointed to the ICNND as an Alternate Navy Representa-
tive. I attended the various meetings of the TCNND. Each team that was
sent abroad was thoroughly briefed on the history of the country to be
surveyed and on the social, political, economic and health situations.
I participated in most of these briefings.
1963-1965 I was appointed to the TCNND) as Navy Representative and par-
ticipated as above. In all approximately 30 countries were surveyed.
II. Bladder Stone Research
1965 The Nutrition Survey of South Vietnam and the one in Thailand
revealed that many children in these countries suffered from idiopathic
urinary bladder stone disease. My studies on stone formation in the
laboratory rat conducted at the Naval Medical Research Institute suggested
that nutritional factors may be involved in bladder stone formation.
Thus, I sought funds to carry out in-depth studies in an appropriate
country. In early 1965, Dr. Charles Cornelius of the University of
California at Davis and I visited many countries to determine where
idiopathic bladder stone disease still occurred and wh~at workc was being
done on the disease. This vas supported with funds from the IGN'ND. Sub-
seqluently, arrangements were made to study stone disease in Thailand.
1965-present In October 1965, L went to Thailand for six months to
worku with Dr. Aree Valyasevi at the SEATO Medical Research Laboratory.
5Je investigated the biochemical and nutritional status of children living
in endemic stone areas to find clues concerinin thie etiology of the
disease. I again worked in Thailand for six months in 1955-66 and for
shorter periods of time each year since 1967. From 1968 on, our work
was conducted at Ramathibodi Hosp~tal in Bangkok since Dr. Aree had be-
come Dean of the Medical Faculty. Our studies revealed that a sub-acute
phosphate deficiency appeared to be involved in the etiology of pediatric
bladder stone disease.
Our studies in Thailand prompted r;;0 to support a symposium on vesical
lithiasis held in Eangkok, January 1972. This was the first international
CURRICULUM VITAE OF ROBERT VAN REEN (Continued)
conference to be devoted to this subject. WH3 asked me to be a
consultant to plan and organlize the symposium, to attend the meeting,
and to prepare a report of the proceedings. To thesec ends, 1 vas a
HO1 consultant in January-February 1971 and in December-January 1972.
The investigations in Thailand and the Sym~posium stimulated scientists
in other countries to undertake studies of bladder stone disease. I
assisted in the development of two additional projects on the disease.
One is directed by Dr. Adel Loutfi of Childrens Hospital, Cairo Univer-
sity, Cairo, Egypt and the other by Dr. M. Ataur Rahman of the Jinnah
Postgraduate Medical Center, Karachi, Pakistan. Both these latter
projects have been funded by the Office of Naval Research. In 1974,
six papers on our work in Egypt were published in the Journal of the
Egyptian Medical Association.
Dr. Taba, Director of the Eastern. Mediterranean Office, WHO in Alexandria
Egypt and the Fogarty International Center, NIH, Bethesda agreed to co-
sponsor a second symposium on bladder stone disease. It was held in
Bethesda, Maryland in April 1976. WHO0 asked me to be their con-
sultant and to visit various countries in May and June 1975 to identify
possible participants for the symposium and to coordinate efforts of
A third International Symposium on Bladder Stone Disease is now being
planned for 1979.
III. Additional Foreign Contacts and Expertise
1. Since 1968 I have been a visiting Associate Professor of Nutrition
at Ramathibodi Hospital, Bangkok, Thailand.
2. I have visited rEAMRU-2 in Taipei and NARlrU-3 in Cairo many times
and am familiar with their operations.
3. In 1970, I was a consultant to NIH to review the project on nutri-
tion and human development at INC9AAP in Guatemala. I visited the
Institute and saw the entire operation.
4. I have been abroad twenty-four times. My visits to various countries
have provided valuable information concerning scientists and their
research efforts not only in regard to bladder stone disease and
nutrition, but also in the general. field of health, medical re-
search and teaching.
5. During my tours on thie NIH Nutrition Study Section (1964-70 as Navy
Represcenttive and 1971-75 as a voting member from the University of
Havaii) I have reviewed many projects from foreign countries.
6. At the University of Havaii, I have served on the University's
International Health Cormmxittee which has taken an active role in
formulating and implementing plans for international health programs.
CURRICULUM VITAE OF ROBERT VAN REEN (Continued)
7. Collaborative efforts vith the East-West Food Institute of the
East-West Center, University of Hawaii have provided considerable
information and expertise in regard to health and agricultural
programs in Asia and the Pacific Basin.
B. Background in Nutrition Education
During most of my career I have been involved in teaching nutrition. At
the Johns Hopkins University's McCullum Pratt Institute (1951-56) I was the
primary expert in nutrition on the staff and taught in various courses.
During my years at the Naval Medical Research Institute, Bethesda, Maryland,
I participated in the training courses offered, particularly in the post-
graduate dental course.
At the University of Hawaii, I have been professor and chairman of the
Department of Food and Nutritional Sciences for the past six years. The
Department has the primary responsibility at the University for training
in human nutrition. We offer undergraduate options which prepare students
for careers in clinical and/or community dietetics. Our program has been
approved by the American Dietetic Association and our graduates are eligible
for internship training at mainland facilities. About 100 undergraduate
students are majors in our departrant. We also offer a M.Sc. degree. in
nutritional sciences and have about 12 students registered for degree
The Department has also developed a proposal for a Ph.D). degree program
which is in administrative channels at this time.
