It is springtime on the Mainland and the whole Northern Hemisphere. Springtime is planting season for farmers and is a very busy time of year. Hundreds of millions of acres are being prepared and planted to provide all of us with food for our tables, feed for animals, fuel for our energy and clothes for our backs.
Here on Maui, it is also springtime. I am proud of the role that Maui and Monsanto play in supporting agriculture around the world by producing seed for farmers. I ask everyone to find a way to support agriculture on Maui, so that we all can continue to have springs filled with abundant production.
