President's Day, 2014

We just returned home from our trip to Hawaii to study agriculture once more.  The roads from Columbus, Ohio to Martinsville were good until we got halfway home, then we saw first hand what our family and friends have been putting up with since we left two weeks ago.

This trip we got to meet with Monsanto, DuPont Pioneer, Dow and Syngenta people.  We saw the most prosperous to the most struggling operations just like we have on the mainland.

Thanks to Chimel for subbing in once more to keep my daily blog going.

More later,

  1. Welcome Home Ed

    We are glad your are settled in safe and sound.

    It certainly sounds like you had a very informative and entertaining trip

    Thank you for sharing.


  2. Thanks for your encouragement, John. The trip was an eye opener for the American Farmers in our group. The GMO discussion is huge in Hawaii and that will be a discussion point here for some time.
