Agricultural Resource Management
Administers the development and management of key agricultural resources.
Land and water are two ingredients essential to sustaining agricultural operations. In recognition of Hawaii’s limited land and water resources, the State Department of Agriculture is charged with preserving these important resources to ensure the viability of Hawaii’s diversified agricultural industry.
Through its Agricultural Resource Management Division, the department operates the State’s Agricultural Park Program. The major objective of this program is to assist people who are interested in leasing land for farming ventures by providing irrigation water, reasonably priced farmland with infrastructure and facilities to encourage competition within the industry.
The program is composed of three separate sub-programs:
