The UH Land Study. Dr. Goro Uehara, professor of Soil Science at UH has studied soils in many different countries and says this is the best farmland in the world. It is a low-lying area, with plenty of sun, gentle winds, and clean water.<quoted text>
Who are these expert's? Where is the data to back them up?
Higher elevations have more cloud cover and experience problems with root rot and insects that love wet conditions. Also they have pH levels that require expensive soil remediation for alkalinity or acidity. Ewa farms have none of these problems. Warm, sunny days allow them to produce four crops a year, compared to three on the North Shore and central highlands, and two in Waimanalo.
