I am studying for my MG test today!

DID YOU KNOW THAT...

  • 90% of the Hawaiian native plants are endemic (a plant that arrived before humans circa 400AD but has evolved and is only found in Hawaii)
  • taro, coconut and sugar cane are not native, but Polynesian Introduced
  • sanitation (removal of infested fruits)  is one of the best control methods for fruit flies
  • the Oriental fruit fly attacks fruit and the Melon fruit fly vegetables, hmmmmmm
  • the wedge graft is the most effective method of grafting
  • there is such a thing as a disease triangle
  • less is more when it comes to fertilizers
  • a "prill" is the little polymer coated ball in your favorite fertilizer
Well, I must hit the books again...ugh!
