  5. Sugarcane was king here in Hawaii till a couple of decades ago but the government had to subsidize the crop eventually cutting the funding so operations moved elsewhere. Sweet Smoke used to fill the air! The red fields in the photo were some prime fields of sugarcane but now are used for other agriculture.
