Agriculture & Biotechnology

The roots of Maui’s agricultural history run deep and the industry continues to evolve to meet the global challenges of the 21st century with the help of agricultural biotechnology.

With over 320 days of sunshine each year, a variety of microclimates and a year-round growing season, the islands offer ideal conditions for product research and development. Maui continues to gain momentum in the state’s growing $98 million seed industry; business pioneer Monsanto is one of the companies with a significant presence on Maui.

Some of the nation’s most competitive high technology tax incentives and over 400,000 acres of agriculturally zoned lands provide fertile ground for advancing the industry’s next generation of products and services.
