We went to Kauai recently- had been there about 10 years ago, and spent considerable time on the "dry" side of the island because the "wet" side was so, well, wet. Dry side is where the sugar cane used to be. Thats gone now (the sugar industry moved to Idaho, and went underground), and the ag on the several thousand acres of flat farm land was pretty spotty.

Now, all I saw was corn! Was wondering what they did with it all, when I came upon the Pioneer facility, then the Syngenta facility. Lots of cars in the parking lot, so I assume they hire quite a few people. As said, its great for research because they have pretty stable, favorable temps for corn, and 3 or 4 life cycles per year, rather than one.

Irrigation is pretty easy- the area is adjacent to a mountain top which is the wettest place in the US- over 400" of rain a year.

As far as the machinery, that red dirt is like a dye- just about impossible to get off. The houses without rain gutters are red about 2 feet up (the splash line). That, and the humidity, take their toll.

hey mike
thanks for confirming what i remembered...it is quite an operation they put together....
what suprised me most...was pineapples...i always thought they grew on trees...

kauai was, and still is, the best place we have ever been to....
we did a week on kauai and a week on the big island...someday we want to go b ack to kauai and maybe maui with another week.

it is a long flight...but totally worth it.

kauai, in addition to teh beauty and fun thins to do, was a very relaxing place filled with very nice people.
