WPTRC | Inarajan Research & Education Center
Occupying 10.6 acres just above the coast on the southeastern side of Guam, the Inarajan experiment station is composed of the least common soil type in Guam. Bottomland, or strandline, soil is found in between the northern limestone soils and the southern volcanic soils of Guam and is deep, slow-draining, and silty or sandy in composition.
The station has a small plantation of 12 banana varieties, including some of the most popular varieties in Guam, such as Macao, Manila, Saba, and Blue Java, and is the only planting of its kind on the island that does not have the bunchy top virus. The collection is used as a source of planting material for farmer workshops and to teach students about plant propagation.
