This virtual field trip on agricultural pollination is the first in a series of electronic field trips covering important issues facing agriculture and food systems, and natural resource management in the State of Hawaii. The field trips will be shared among the academic programs that comprise the Agribusiness Education, Training and Incubation (AETI) Program. The AETI Program represents a consortium of University of Hawaii campuses on four different islands, with the common goals of developing the local agricultural and food production workforce through education and training, and expanding agricultural and food production in Hawaii through more productive agribusinesses. By sharing virtual field trips among the AETI campuses, students will gain experiences and knowledge available on other campuses and other islands in the state of Hawaii in an efficient and cost-effective manner. The AETI Program is supported by USDA’s National Institute of Food and Agriculture.
