This new publication, Taro Leaf Blight Manual discusses taro leaf blight and its effect on taro cultivation in Samoa. It considers the approach used by Samoa to tackle the disease and how, through a participatory breeding programme, taro was once again returned to the fields of Samoa. In practical application, the manual explains the steps involved in a taro breeding programme and how to establish a participatory taro breeding programme.

A step by step approach is used to explain the breeding process which should enable any farmer, researcher or extension agent to breed taro. The publication concludes by highlighting the risks of taro leaf blight (TLB) faced by other countries in the Pacific, under the projected climate conditions for the region, with recommended strategies for consideration.
