Mark Your Calendars: Hawaii Agriculture Conference, January 8-9, 2014

One of the hottest issues in Hawaii at the moment is agriculture. From the spreading county restrictions on GMO crops and pesticides, to water issues, to estate planning, the issues impacting farmers, ranchers, and owners of Ag land are growing.

On January 8 and 9, 2014, the Seminar Group is putting on what we hope will become a regular event - the Hawaii Agriculture Conference. This two-day conference is for both farmers and lawyers, and covers these issues and others:

  • Contracts and marketing methods for Hawaii agriculture products
  • The Hawaii coffee industry
  • GMO vs organic
  • Zoning and land use issues
  • Exporting issues
  • Water rights
  • Labor law for farmers and ranchers
  • Best husbandry practices
  • Crop loss insurance

I'm the Planning Co-chair, along with David Bateman, a retired lawyer who also happens to be the owner of Heavenly Hawaiian Farms, an award-winning coffee farm on the Big Island. We've put together an impressive faculty of lawyers, Ag experts, and government regulators from state, county, and federal governments.

Download the brochure here. Or visit the Seminar Group's web site for more information, including registration.

We hope you can join us for this cutting edge program.
