• Kauai’s agriculture started in the early Hawaiian lo`i kalo (terraced taro fields) and continues to form a vital part of the economy of this tropical rural county.
• The aptly named Garden Island is, from an agricultural perspective, a challenging, but rewarding place to do business. Kauai’s 365-day-a-year growing season affords farmers and gardeners the opportunity to grow everything from tropical fruits and flowers to traditional Polynesian and row crops, endangered native plants and exotic hardwoods.
• The largest coffee estate in the U.S. is the Kaua`i Coffee Company on Kauai’s south side which has 3,400 acres dedicated to growing an annual yield of 3.5 million pounds (60% of Hawaii’s total output).
• In terms of economic value, Kauai’s number one crop today is seed corn which is grown largely on west Kaua`i and exported to the U.S. mainland. Other important crops include coffee, guava and taro. Also, on the north shore, in the Hanalei Valley, roughly two-thirds of Hawaii’s six million pounds of poi taro (an important traditional Hawaiian staple) is grown and processed.
• Additionally, Kaua`i farmers grow papayas, bananas, tropical specialty fruits like rambutan, lychee and longan, row crops like bok choi and lettuce as well as hardwoods like teak, mahogany, albizia, and tropical flowers, although none of these are major crops now.
• Beef cattle are also raised and exported to the U.S. mainland while small hog and chicken operations remain for domestic consumption.
• The landscaping and nursery businesses are also important to Kauai’s agriculture --economy.
