The objective of the Risk Management School is to help growers address agricultural risk in an educated and calculated manner. In some instances, growers increase their awareness of emerging risks or risks they had not considered, as well as various risk management tools, techniques, and strategies.
LIFE and Risk Management Hawaii would like to thank all of its participants, speakers and trade show participants for their continued support of Hawaii agriculture and farmers.
