In Hawaii, the owner of Hawaiian Cane & Sugar, Alexander & Baldwin, has announced plans for the transition of its extensive 36,000 acres of sugarcane plantations in Maui to a wide range of crops including pongamia orchards for biodiesel and other crops for biogas production. Other uses for the former sugarcane land are expected to include cattle ranching, coffee and/or cocoa production, dairy, and non-biodiesel orchards. The state has a goal to double its food self-sufficiency to 20% by 2020.
