New video on Hawaii Ag

Oahu papaya farmer Ken Kamiya and his daughter Joni are highlighted in this new documentary, which focuses on the role of the GMO papaya in saving the commercial industry in Hawaii. The Kamiyas and other Hawaii farmers also talk the rise of the anti-GMO movement in Hawaii, the challenges facing local agriculture and the need for all types of farming to keep ag alive in the Islands.

This video — produced by journalist Joan Conrow for the Cornell Alliance for Science — will be broadcast on Hawaii public access TV stations this month. Please feel free to share the link.
