About the Program
Bayer Crop Science's Upper Kunia Farm is located on the island of O'ahu, 22 miles northwest of Honolulu. The site encompasses 220 acres of public-private agricultural fields. In 2016, 3 acres were set aside to be managed as a native grassland habitat for pollinators. The habitat is planted with native shrubs, grasses and trees to preserve the endemic flora of Hawaii.

Practices and Impacts
  • The team maintains almost 3 acres of plants. Maintenance activities include weeding, mulching, mowing and watering. The team also maintains an irrigation system on-site.
  • The team collects data on plant health and diversity of over 20 native plant species during the growing season.
