Leguminous Crops for Hawaii

By F.G. Krauss

Abstract

This bulletin is intended to give brief descriptions and practical suggestions that will be helpful in growing leguminous crops under Hawaiian conditions. Recognizing the need and importance of introducing this class of crops into our agriculture to secure the highest development, this station began several years ago to test systematically a large number of leguminous plants to determine their relative adaptability to Hawaiian conditions and to improve by selection such varieties as experience would show best suited to the various uses to which leguminous crops are usually put. Small lots of select seed have been freely disriibuted among farmers during the past few years, and the reports from these, together with the experimental data accumulated by the station, form the basis of the bulletin
