Air Layering: An Old Practice with a New System for Tropical Fruits and Native Plant Preservation. - 2018
by Dr. Joe DeFrank
Dr. Joe DeFrank made a presentation at the 28th Annual Hawaii Tropical Fruit Growers Conference at Leeward Community College in Pearl City Hawaii on 09/21/2018. He discussed a new device for air layering tropical fruit trees and native Hawaiian plants located in remote mountain locations. This new air layer device allows for rooting branches of various sizes. Dr. DeFrank suggested using air layered branches of mature woody fruit trees to exchange pollen for international breeding programs. Air layering root suckers of elite native Hawaiian Koa and Ohia was discussed for use in developing seed nurseries in more easily accessible locations.
