Land Grant College System


Universities or colleges that receives the benefits of the Morill Acts of 1862 and 1890 (Education) Hatch Act of 1887 allowed land grant colleges to create agricultural research stations to conduct practical research that would assist farmers (Research) Smith-Lever Act of 1914 results in the cooperative extension services and a mechanism for technology transfer (Extension)

History of the Land Grant College Program in Hawaii


The University of Hawaii, founded in 1907, was initially the College of Agriculture and Mechanic Arts with 5 students in 1908.
The Land Grant College is now the College of Tropical Agriculture and Human Resources, one of six colleges located on the UH Manoa campus.

Classic Example of How a Land Grant College Program Works


Tropic Sunrise Society of American Florists/2007 Outstanding Varieties Competition.

Drs. Haruyuki Kamemoto and Heidi Kuehnle with Tropic Fire. Since 1950 developing disease resistant and novel anthuriums for the flower industry. which helped anthuriums become the states most valuable cut-flower crop (farm-gate value of $4.7 million in 2005)

Lavendar Lady Society of American Florists/2004 Outstanding Varieties Competition

Harold and Eric Tanouye Green Point Nurseries, Inc.

Frank Baensch is currently enrolled as a doctoral candidate at the University of Nagasakis Ronpaku Program. This is made possible through an MOU between the Dept. of MBBE/CTAHR and Nagasaki University
