Successful farming is possible without chemicals

Wow. The Jan. 19 Viewpoint shows how our farmers are so misled.

I have been farming on Maui since 1969 successfully without the use of any chemicals. I feed about 200 families a week.

I could not find one truth in the whole article.

Please, Maui, understand there is a lot of knowledge about the use of harmful chemicals on the food people put in their mouths.

The Viewpoint maybe would fit in a newspaper article in the 1950s, but we all have gotten a lot smarter since then and I’m living, breathing proof that we do not need these harmful substances to grow delicious food successfully.

Sorry to see this misleading information printed so openly in our Maui News.
