With “National Ag Day” coming up on March 20, Smart Yields CEO Vincent Kimura says that “Hawaii is uniquely positioned to address agriculture’s most pressing issues, then scale them for the global stage.”

In an op-ed piece published today in the Honolulu Star-Advertiser, Kimura shares how innovations in agriculture can help Hawaii farmers thrive:

Our approach draws inspiration from the ahupua’a, the traditional Hawaii land division that stretches from the mountains to the ocean, containing the many important resources needed for the communities within. It’s a model for agricultural health that can be applied throughout the world, enhancing the ways we work together to provide food security, sustainability, and profitability for each unique and local environment.
