Program Description
According to the 1990 Census, the average farm size in American Samoa is 15.1 acres. However, because of the Samoan family structure, almost everyone has access to property. The extended family system and small farm size are the determining factor in our research and extension efforts.
These research and extension efforts include:
  • Community and home vegetable gardening
  • Traditional crop improvement
  • Integrated Pest Management
  • Agroforestry
  • Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program
