Modern Agriculture 101

Modern Agriculture is really about making sure that farmers have all the tools that they need to make the best decisions.

For more than 50 years, Monsanto has remained one of the largest contributors to Hawaii’s agriculture industry, with farms on Oahu, Maui and Molokai.

Today, the agriculture industry is facing many challenges globally, and especially in Hawaii. Science innovations and advancements in digital tools are helping us to identify new solutions to help farmers address challenges, all while using less natural resources. Some of these challenges include, food production, labor shortage, water stresses, pest control, and plant diseases, just to name a few.

Advancements in technology allow our farmers to work more sustainably and become better stewards of our natural resources.

All of Monsanto’s farms offer free farm tours to the public, on request. Those with a genuine interest in what we do and a visit to one of Monsanto’s farms on Oahu, Maui or Molokai, please visit for more information.
