Could Hawaii Become A Technology Hub For Agriculture? 0 Event organizers say a conference later this month could be the next step in making the islands a proving ground for farming technologies.

Making Hawaii a hub for agricultural innovation could be one solution to a changing climate, fraying supply chains and persistent infrastructure issues that plague the local food system.

That’s according to the organizers of the inaugural Tropical AgTech Conference, set to be held June 22-23 in Hilo. The event features innovators and entrepreneurs who will share their experiences in an effort to help the state’s food system.

But the conference organizers have a broader vision in mind: Turn the state into an agricultural technology hub, where innovators are lured to invest and develop their work before taking their tech to the rest of the tropics.
