Hawaii

On-Air

As part of our ongoing commitments to transparency, community support and Hawaii agriculture, Bayer Hawaii works to share information not only about what we do in the islands, but what others are doing in the community and in agriculture, through video stories on HI Now and a bi-monthly KHVH radio program Sustaining Hawaii.

Sometimes they're a little light-hearted. Sometimes they're purely educational. Sometimes they dig into more serious, but critically important, issues. We hope you'll enjoy these episodes.

About Sustaining Hawaii:

 

The radio program airs from 9–10 am on the first and third Wednesday of the month on News Radio 830 KHVH. Today's global agriculture industry is facing many challenges. Climate change, labor shortage, water stresses, and pest control are just a few of these challenges affecting us here in Hawaii. Throughout 2021 & 2022, KHVH host Rick Hamada will sit down with local farmers and industry leaders to take a closer look at Hawaii's farming industry while covering a wide range of topics, from invasive species and technology to COVID-19 challenges.
