Statewide Survey of Hawaiʻi’s Avocado Industry

by Thunda

The Hawaiʻi Farmers Union United (HFUU) and Hawaiʻi Avocado Association (HAA) are conduction a survey as part of their Hawaiʻi Department of Agriculture Specialty Crop Block Grant for Fiscal Year 2020.

The purpose of the survey is to estimate the current supply of avocados grown commercially in Hawaii, including the types of cultivars (varieties) and growing elevations on each island. This information will be used to develop strategies to bolster Hawaiʻiʻs avocado industry.

Results will be shared publicly, but individual farmers and farm names will be kept anonymous.
