When Paul Awaikera graduated from Lincoln University he decided not to go back to the Solomon Islands. His degree  focussed on temperate agriculture and at home it is tropical and requires a different approach to farming, he says. Twenty years on Paul and his family are still here and, after being a farm manager for several years, Paul has switched to variable order sharemilking and hasn't looked back.
