Two seed industry employees have dropped out of a fact-finding group that was charged by the Hawaii Department of Agriculture and Kauai County to evaluate the environmental and health impacts of agricultural pesticide use on Kauai.
Gerardo Rojas Garcia, a site manager at Dow AgroSciences, and Sarah Styan, a senior research manager at DuPont Pioneer, resigned Saturday from the group, which was led by Peter Adler, a mediator at the consulting company ACCORD3.0 Network.
“It is my conclusion that this (Joint Fact Finding) group under your direction has failed in its mission to remain ‘fact based,'” Garcia wrote in his resignation letter to Adler on Monday.
