We encourage everyone to learn as much as they can about the seed industry, agriculture and the agricultural sciences in Hawaii.

When people have access to factual information from credible, science-based sources, they overwhelmingly support what we do and easily see through popular myths designed to scare the uninformed.

Here you’ll find a breadth of institutional authorities and expert bloggers, not all of whom agree 100 percent with each other or with us on all issues. But a rigorous, well-informed conversation between rational parties is the best way to ensure that all reasonable viewpoints are considered and the choices we make as a society are the best for our future here in Hawaii and everywhere we plant our seeds.
