Aloha land owners, project managers, farmers, gardeners and green thumbs alike!!
As we enter into 2017 it is proving to be an outstanding year in agriculture with newly available lands and multitudes of new farmers starting every month. With all the advancements in information sharing and technology, farming has been propelled into the mainstream and progressing at a tremendous rate.
Unfortunately with this rapid advancement also comes some serious downfalls, magnified by lots of misinformation and improper techniques to farm successfully in our island’s climate and soil structures. Most of the farming failures I see are with some very talented and brilliant people entering into farming armed with mis-information usually related to off island experiences and results. Although this information is a great tool for a solid start, it is usually Just enough to allow most ventures to go deep and then fail miserably, with no benefits to the individuals, the land, or agriculture in the islands as a whole. Ironically these failures are not limited to farm sizes, finances and/or educational practices. Too many backyard gardeners, small-scale farms as well as multi million dollar projects fail miserably from poor planning, poor timing and simply too much unrelated information for Hawaii’s growing climate. Yes, too much unrelated information.
