The use of local resources for vegetable production in the South Pacific. 1. The use of compost in vegetable production in Western Samoa. 2. A system for growing vegetables on coral islands using coconut fibre


, : The use of local resources for vegetable production in the South Pacific. 1. The use of compost in vegetable production in Western Samoa. 2. A system for growing vegetables on coral islands using coconut fibre. Proceedings: Planning and Organization Meeting, Fertilizer INPUTS Increasing Productivity under Tight Supplies Project: 169-180

A simple technique for composting green weeds and grass amended with pig and poultry manure was developed. The beneficial effects of applying compost, alone or plus NPK, on soil chemical and fertility parameters, and on yields, nodulation and root knot nematode galling of bush beans, were demonstrated. Chopped coconut fibre was a satisfactory medium for use in raised beds constructed from readily available materials.
