Taro (Colocasia esculente), which is a major food crop in the South Pacific, is subject to significant losses from pests and diseases. TaroPest has been developed as a guide to the pests and diseases of taro in the South Pacific. TaroPest consists of a field guide and a self-running CD-ROM, which is interactive and contains information additional to that presented in the manual. The field guide is designed to be a portable printed version to be used in conjunction with the CD-ROM.
