Abstract: This paper is the second in a number of scheduled papers on ethnographic aspects of subsistence crops of the Trust Territory of the Pacific Islands. As indicated in the first paper of this subsistence crop series, these papers do not attempt to be botanical guides. An attempt has been made to check botanical names and agricultural aspects and in this respect, the Director of Agriculture and members of his staff ha'V"e given valuable advice and aid. The paper on taro cultivation practices is being issued in two parts; the present section, Part I, dealing with the region known as the Western Carolines. Part II will be devoted to the Eastern Carolines and the Marshall Islands. The paper on taro cultivation in Yap District is based on an earlier paper prepared by Mr. Dai You Kim,former agriculturist of Yap District. It has been rewritten by the Assistant Anthropologist of Yap District and considerable new material added.
