Introduction

Aloha Hawaii Coffee Farmers, Processors, Producers, Workers, and Industry Stakeholders,
 
My name is Andrea Kawabata and I am an Extension Agent with the University of Hawaii at Manoa's College of Agriculture and Human Resources' (UH-CTAHR) Cooperative Extension. I am conducting a Hawaii coffee industry needs assessment and coffee leaf rust survey and seeking input from you. 

The purpose of this survey is to help me, Cooperative Extension, and researchers develop a clearer picture of the current coffee industry situation in the state, in order to develop programs and strategies to help support the industry.

Benefits of this coffee industry needs assessment include:
   - Gaining a snapshot of opportunities and challenges of producing coffee in Hawaii;
   - Developing a clearer understanding of gaps in communication, education, and research; and
   - Providing Cooperative Extension, researchers, funding agencies, and other stakeholders with a resource that will help them develop programs that best meet the needs of Hawaii's coffee industry.

This online survey will take about 30-45 minutes to complete. Should you accidentally close your browser or need to complete the survey at a later time, you will be able to pick up where you left off.

Only one response per device is allowed. All information will be kept secure and precautions will be taken to ensure confidentiality of responses. The results will be shared in aggregate form in reports, presentations, and peer-reviewed publications.

ALL Hawaii coffee growers, farm managers, workers, processors, producers, and industry stakeholders are encouraged to complete the survey to ensure their challenges, successes, needs, concerns, and interests are heard and recorded.

The deadline for responding to this survey is February 15, 2022.
 
Your participation in this project is completely voluntary and you may stop participating at any time if you wish. 

Following survey completion, those choosing to enter their name into a drawing for a $150 gift card may do so by clicking a separate link and then entering their contact information and a code which will be provided at the end of the survey. Four (4) winners of a gift card valued at $150 each will be randomly selected following the close of this survey.
