Hawaii is not a state. It is an illegally occupied nation and the US military is the illegal occupying force. The fake state of Hawaii never has and cannot ever OWN Hawaiian land. The entire things is a fraud built on a foundation of extortion, theft, murder, etc., and a hostile takeover of Hawaii.
It is time for the world to know The Truth. Nothing that the fake state of Hawaii does is legitimate. It is criminal organization engaged in criminal acts.
Hawaii Leases Land to GMO Syngenta for $50 per Acre per Year
"The State of Hawaii has leased 2,939 acres of Crown land for $50 per year for the next 20 years to the GMO company Syngenta. Why is this deal not available to organic farmers? If there is so much Hawaiian land available to GMO Syngenta Corp for so little cost, then the following questions come to mind:
Hawaii State Syngenta SealWhy do we have a homeless problem in Hawaii?
Why are many of us paying 40%-50% or more of our incomes for rent?
Why is the cost of locally grown food so high?
Why aren’t organic farmers given the same opportunity when they use no poisons on the ain`a?
What questions would you add to this list?

Infrastructure Improvement Costs attributable to said Common Infrastructure Improvements. 4. Re-opening of Base Annual License Fee. A. Adjustments to License Fee Related to Changes in Common Infrastructure Improvement Costs. The base annual license fee for tillable acres shall be increased or decreased, after the first twelve months of the term of the MOA between the LICENSOR and the Cooperative described in Paragraph 3 above, to the extent (hereinafter the “Common Infrastructure Improvement Costs Adj ustment”) that the amount (determined on a per acre basis for tillable acres) assessed against or charged to LICENSEE by the Cooperative or any other entity (including LICENSOR) for LICENSEE’s share of Common Infrastructure Improvement Costs is more or less than $75.00/acre/year. In the event that the Common Infrastructure Improvement Cost Adjustment results in a reduction in the base annual license fee, any such reduction shall not in any circumstances exceed on a per acre basis the base annual license fee then payable for tillable acres. The base annual license fee for tillable acres shall thereafter be renegotiated after the third year of the term of the MOA and every five (5) years thereafter during the term of the MOA, and shall be increased or decreased to the extent that the amount (determined on a per acre basis for tillable acres) assessed against or charged to LICENSEE by the Cooperative or any other entity (including LICENSOR) for LICENSEE’s share of Common Infrastructure Improvement Costs is more or less than $75.00/acre/year, plus or minus, as the case may be, any Common Infrastructure Improvement Costs Adjustment previously taken into account. The adjustment to the base annual license fee specified in this Paragraph 4.A shall be made independently of any adjustment specified in Paragraph 4.B below. Examples. The following examples are intended to illustrate the foregoing license fee adjustments based on any resulting difference between actual Common Infrastructure Improvement Costs and the initial estimated amount of $75.00/acre/year. Example 1. By Infrastructure Improvement Cooperative for the first 0201839b.doc way of example, if the Common Costs charged to LICENSEE by thetwelve months of the term of the
MOA amounted to $60.00 per acre (determined on a per acre basis for tillable acres), the base annual license fee for tillable acres for the ensuing two years would be increased by $15.00/acre/year (being the difference between $75.00/acre/year and the actual amount charged by the Cooperative), so that the base annual license fee for tillable acres for such ensuing two-year period would be $65.00/acre/year. On the other hand, if the Common Infrastructure Improvement Costs charged to LICENSEE for the first twelve months of the term of the MOA amounted to $90.00 per acre (determined on a per acre basis for tillable acres), the base annual license fee for tillable acres for the ensuing two years would be decreased by $15. OO/acre/year, so that the base annual license fee for such ensuing two-year period would be $35.00/acre/year. Example 2. If the Common Infrastructure Improvement Costs charged to LICENSEE for the first twelve months of the term of the MOA amounted to $90.00 per acre, so that the base annual license fee for the next two years was reduced by $15.00/acre/year to $35.00/acre/year for tillable acres, and the Common Infrastructure Improvement Costs charged to LICENSEE for the third year of the term of the MOA amounted to $100.00/acre/year, the base annual license fee for tillable acres would be further reduced by an additional $10.00/acre/year (being the difference between the $75.00/acre/year and the $100.00/acre/year actually charged by the Cooperative, less the $15. OO/acre/year already taken into account in making the adj ustment after the first year of the term of the MOA.) Example 3. The base annual license fee for tillable acres shall under no circumstances be reduced below zero (0) by reason of the adjustments specified in this Paragraph 4.A. Accordingly, if the Common Infrastructure Improvement Costs charged to LICENSEE for the first twelve months of the term of the MOA amounted to $125.00 per acre (determined on a per acre basis for tillable acres), the base annual license fee for tillable acres would be reduced by $50. OO/acre/year (being the difference between the $75.00/acre/year and the $125. OO/acre/year actually charged by the Cooperative), so that the base annual license fee for the ensuing two-year period would be zero (0). On the other hand, if Common Infrastructure Improvement Costs charged to LICENSEE for the first twelve months of the term of the MOAamounted to $150.00 per acre (determined on a per acre basis for tillable acres), the base annual license fee would be
reduced to zero (0), but not to a negative number, and LICENSOR would not be required to pay any amounts to LICENSEE to subsidize such excess Common Infrastructure Improvement Costs charged to LICENSEE or to refund to LICENSEE any base annual license fee amounts previously collected. B. ustments Related to s in Fair Market Rental Values. The base annual license fee for tillable acres shall also be re-opened and re-determined at the expiration of the 5th and lOth years of the term to take into account any change in the fair market rental value of the tillable acres included in the Premises. Upon re-opening, the base annual license fee may be increased by LICENSOR to the fair market rental value of the tillable acres included in Premises. If LICENSOR and LICENSEE are unable to agree on the fair market rental value of the tillable acres included in the Premises at least four (4) months prior to the effective date of any such re-opening of the base annual license fee, the fair market rental value of the tillable acres shall be determined by a single arbitrator who shall be a licensed real estate appraiser. Subj ect to any procurement requirements applicable to LICENSOR under the laws of the State of Hawaii, the arbitrator shall be selected by mutual agreement of LICENSOR and LICENSEE or by a court in the event that LICENSOR and LICENSEE are unable to select the arbitrator by mutual agreement. In determining the fair market rental value of the tillable acres, LICENSOR, LICENSEE, and the arbitrator shall take into account that the LICENSEE is required under the terms of this License Agreement to pay the Common Infrastructure Improvements Costs allocable to the Premises. Except as provided in Paragraph 4. A above, in no event shall the new base annual license fee be less than the base annual license fee for the immediately preceding period. The fees and costs of the arbitrator shall be paid one-half (1/2) by LICENSOR and onehalf (1/2) by LICENSEE. The adjustment to the base annual license fee specified in this Paragraph 4.B shall be made independently of any adjustment specified in Paragraph 4.A below. Examples. The following examples are intended to illustrate the foregoing license fee adjustments effective as of the expiration of the 5th and lOth years of the term of this License Agreement.
Example 1. This example assumes that there has been no adjustment in the base annual license fee for tillable acres under Paragraph 4.A above. Assume that the fair market value of the tillable acres included in the Premises (as determined by the appraiser) increased by $35.00/acre/year between the commencement date and the expiration of the 5th year of the term of this License Agreement. In such circumstances, the base annual 1 icense fee would be increased from $50. OO/acre/year for tillable acres to $85.00/acre/year. In making the determination whether the fair market value of the land increased during said five-year period, the appraiser shall take into account that the LICENSEE is required under the terms of this License Agreement to pay the Common Infrastructure Improvements Costs allocable to the Premises, meaning that, in determining the fair market value of the tillable acres, the appraiser shall consider only comparable transactions in which a tenant of agricultural land must provide and pay for all irrigation, power, drainage, road, and other similar infrastructure service costs. Example 2. Except as provided in Paragraph 4.A above, in no event shall the new base annual license fee be less than the base annual license fee for the immediately preceding period. Therefore, in Example 1 immediately preceding, if the appraiser determined that the fair market value of the tillable acres decreased, instead of increased, by $35. OO/acre/year between the commencement date of this License Agreement and the expiration of the 5th year of the term of this License Agreement, the base annual license fee for tillable acres during the second five years of the term of the License Agreement would remain at $50.00/acre/year, the amount of the base annual license fee for tillable acres for the immediately preceding period. Example 3. This example assumes that, pursuant to Paragraph 4.A above, the base annual license fee for tillable acres has been increased by the fifth year of the term of this License Agreement from $SO/acre/year for tillable acres to $100.00/acre/year as a result of differences between the Common Infrastructure Improvement Costs actually charged to LICENSEE and the estimated amount of $75.00/acre/year specified in Paragraph 4.A. This example also assumes that the appraiser determines that the fair market value of tillable acres involved in comparable transactions in which the tenant is required to provide and
pay for all irrigation, power, drainage, road, and other similar infrastructure service costs has increased by $35.DD/acre/year between the commencement date of this License Agreement and the expiration of the fifth year of the term of this License Agreement. Under such circumstances, the base annual license fee for tillable acres for the second five years of the term of this License Agreement would be increased to $135. DD/acre/year ($100.00/acre/year plus $35.00/acre/year). Example 4. Assume all of the same facts as set forth in Example 3 immediately preceding, except that, instead of increasing, the fair market rent for tillable acres decreased by $35.DD/acre/year by the fifth year of the term of this License Agreement. Paragraph 4. B provides that, except as provided in Paragraph 4.A above, in no event shall the new base annual license fee be less than the base annual license fee for the immediately preceding period. Accordingly, under the facts of this Example 4, the base annual license fee for tillable acres for the second five years of the term of this License Agreement would remain at $lDD. DD/acre/year (computed as the base annual license fee of $5D.DD/acre/year for the first five years of the term as adjusted pursuant to Paragraph 4.A.) Example 5. Assume all of the same facts as set forth in Example 3 above, and that, as set forth in Example 3, the base annual license fee for tillable acres for the second five years of the term of this License Agreement has been increased to $135. DO / acre/year. Assume also that, at the next adjustment in the base annual license fee for tillable acres specified in Paragraph 4.A, the Common Infrastructure Improvement Costs charged to LICENSEE by the Cooperative amounted to $165. OO/acre/year. Pursuant to Paragraph 4.A, the base annual license fee for tillable acres would be reduced by $9D.DO/acre/year (being the difference between the actual amount of Common Infrastructure Improvement Costs actually charged by the Cooperative and the $75.0D/acre/year estimated amount specified in Paragraph 4.A) from $135.00/acre/year to $45.0D/acre/year. (Paragraph 4.A permits the base annual license fee to be reduced below the initial amount of $50.00/acre/year, but not below zero (D), in the event that the Common Infrastructure Improvement Costs exceed the
initial estimated amount of $75.DO/acre/year.)
5. Interest on Delinquent License Fees. The interest rate on the principal amount of any and all unpaid or delinquent license fee payments shall be one percent (1%) per month, plus a service charge of FIFTY AND NO/IOO DOLLARS ($50.00) per month for each delinquent payment. 6. [Reserved. 1 7. Taxes, Assessments, and utilities. LICENSEE shall pay, if and when due, LICENSEE’s proportionate share of all taxes and similar rates, assessments, charges, and outgoings, if any, of every nature and kind whatsoever, which shall during the term of this License be lawfully charged, assessed, imposed, or become due and payable upon or in respect of the Premises and the improvements now on or hereafter erected by LICENSEE thereon. In the event that any taxes or similar rates, assessments, charges, or outgoings are levied against any larger tract of land or property, including the Property, which includes the Premises, LICENSEE’s proportionate share shall be based on the ratio that the total acreage of the Premises bears to the total acreage of such larger property subj ect to any such taxes, rates, assessments, charges, and outgoings. In the event that LICENSEE purchases any utility services from a provider other than the Cooperative or other entity (including LICENSOR) responsible for management of the common infrastructure that serves the Property, LICENSEE shall be required to pay, when due, all fees, charges, and costs of such additional utility services. 8. Character of Use. LICENSEE shall not do or commit, or permit or suffer to be done, any willful or voluntary waste or destruction in and upon the Premises, any nUlsance in and upon the Premises, or any unlawful or improper use of the Premises. (a) LICENSEE shall use the Premises solely for agricultural purposes, as set forth in LICENSEE’s land utilization plan attached hereto as Exhibit ·C”. LICENSEE’s use of the Premises shall be subject to any recorded covenants, conditions, and restrictions of any and all recorded encumbrances on the Premises existing as of the date of this License Agreement. (b) No livestock production operations shall be conducted on the Premises without the prior approval of the State Department of Health.
(c) All livestock production operations shall be operated and maintained so as not to create any public health problems as determined by the State Department of Health.

Utilization and Development of the Land. LICENSEE shall utilize and develop the Premises in accordance with LICENSEE’s plan for utilization and development which has been approved by LICENSOR before execution of this License Agreement and which is incorporated in LICENSEE’s land utilization plan attached as Exhibit “C” hereto. Any material modification or deviation from LICENSEE’s utilization and development plan without the prior written approval of LICENSOR may constitute a breach of this License and a cause for the termination thereof. 10. Sublicensing. LICENSEE shall not sublicense or rent the whole or any portion of the Premises without the prior consent of LICENSOR, which consent may be withheld In LICENSOR’s sole discretion. Any sublicensing request shall be submitted in writing to LICENSOR, together with a copy of the sub-licensee’s land utilization plan and rental payment schedule for LICENSOR’s consideration. Profit on any sublicense charges are neither allowed, nor shall be sought by LICENSEE. 11. Good Husbandry and Conservation Practices. Insofar as LICENSEE’s use of the Premises (as set forth in LICENSEE’s land utilization plan) includes the breeding, feeding, and keeping of livestock or other animals, LICENSEE shall at all
times practice good husbandry with regard to the use of the Premises for the use permitted. LICENSEE shall carry out a program of conservation based upon a conservation plan developed by LICENSEE in cooperation with the appropriate Soil and Water Conservation District. The conservation program shall be in accordance with a conservation plan which shall be submitted to LICENSOR for acceptance within one (1) year following the date of this License. The conservation plan shall include, but not be limited to, those practices such as land clearing, cropping system, irrigation system, drainage, noxious weed control, and other measures needed to protect the land against deterioration and to prevent environmental degradation; provided, however, that this requirement may be waived for licenses, premises, or uses with little or no apparent conservation problems when verified by the appropriate Soil and Water Conservation District. In the event the activities of LICENSEE in this regard shall be found to be contradictory to the aforesaid conservation plan or unsatisfactory to LICENSOR, LICENSOR shall notify LICENSEE and LICENSEE shall be required, within sixty (60) days of the notice, to cure or correct the contradictory or unsatisfactory condition and submit proof of such cure or correction that is satisfactory to LICENSOR. 12.
