Senate Confirms Molokai Farmer Lynn Decoite as a Member of the Board of Agriculture

Honolulu- The Hawaii State Senate today confirmed Lynn Decoite to the Board of Agriculture. She will serve until June 2016.

Decoite has many years of agricultural experience. She is the current owner and ranch handler for V-8 Ranch, where she handles breeding, branding, irrigating, and the overall maintenance and management at the ranch. She is also the owner and manager of L&R Farm Enterprises, LLC, overseeing the daily operations of planting, harvesting, irrigating, and marketing produce.

"Ms. Decoite's extensive and diverse knowledge of farming and agriculture makes her a well-qualified member of the Board of Agriculture," said Sen. J. Kalani English, who represents District 6 (Hāna, East and Upcountry Maui, Moloka'i, Lāna'i, and Kaho'olawe). "As a former member of the Molokai Irrigation System Water Users Advisory Board, her experience with complex water issues facing the agricultural industry on Molokai will be valuable to the Board."
