Abstract: The objective is to develop and study a bottom-heating system in a greenhouse utilizing geothermal energy to aid germination and speed growth of palms. Source of heat was geothermal brine from HGP-A well. The project was successful; the heat made a dramatic difference with certain varieties, such as Areca catechu (betelnut) with 82% germination with heat, zero without. For other varieties, germination rates were much closer. Quality of seed is important. Tabs, figs.
Description: Report Number: DOE/SF/15798--T10
Sponsor: DOE Contract Number FG03-85SF15798. "This is a report of work performed for the Community Geothermal Technology Program, a small grant program administered jointly by the Hawai'i Natural Energy Institute and the State of Hawai'i Department of Business, Economic Development and Tourism. This project was one of five funded under the second phase of the program, which were awarded in 1988. Funds for this phase were provided by the U.S. Department of Energy, the County of Hawai'i, and donations from private business."
