UH News: Andrew Hashimoto to step down as dean of UH Mānoa CTAHR

Advisory committee launches nationwide search for CTAHR leader

Andrew “Andy” Hashimoto, who has served as dean of the UH Mānoa College of Tropical Agriculture and Human Resources (CTAHR) since 2000, will step down from his administrative position, and will return to the faculty on or before June 30, 2010.

Hashimoto cited his original plan, on taking the post nine years ago, to serve up to a decade as CTAHR dean. “I am not sure if there ever is the perfect time to change positions,” he said, “but increasing family needs require that I have more flexibility and control over my time and schedule than I currently have as dean.”

Herbicide Field Day on Wedelia & Sedges

Reminder…Herbicide Field Day on Wedelia & Sedges

This Friday, April 4, 2008

Wedelia is often used as a groundcover. However, some people consider it a weed and efforts are currently being taken to place it on the invasive weed list. Recently an herbicide trial was conducted with Sedge-Hammer (SledgeHammer | Sledge-Hammer), Manage, Certainty, Monument, and Image for the control of wedelia, purple nutsedge, green kyllinga, and white kyllinga. You are invited to attend a field day to observe the herbicide effects on wedelia and the early results on these sedges.
