In preparation for this years CAP contest, teachers from around the island attended our special CAP teacher training. CTAHR soils experts Dr. Deenik and Dr. Crow provided their expertise and guidance for CAP contest ag teachers.
We were so lucky to have them on board and provide us with the best information on Hawaii Soils. We also have received help from soil experts Josh Silva and Nolan Johnson. Their lab has just released the Hawaii Soil Atlas for farmers to use locally.
Teachers were given soil to ribbon, squish, and get messy! Despite the down pouring rain, we were still able to have a great time, and talk about soil and agriculture.
This years CAP contest will be held in cooperation with CTAHR at the Waimanalo Research Station on October 17th.
