Hawaii Standard Time
Sponsored by the Pacific Fire Exchange
Presented by Dr. James Leary, Associate Research and Extension Specialist with the University of Hawaii
Join the Pacific Fire Exchange to get some grass-kickin' tips based on over a decade of observations and experiments on tropical grasses. Grasses have modified large landscape areas in Hawaii and the Pacific and often outcompete other plant communities. Abandoned landscapes are particularly prone to the grass-fire cycle. These factors limit the recovery of functional watersheds and habitat. Improved grass suppression can improve native forest restoration and reduce wildfire occurrence. Join in as James Leary presents on grass management, including information on different grass species and on herbicide timing, application method, and ingredients.
