All the latest news on Postharvest and Post-summer activities

Disconnect to reconnect. Everyone needs a few days off to recharge their batteries and get back to work with more energy, that's why Postharvest.biz will be closed for summer holidays from 1 to 22 August. We will be back on the 22nd with all the most relevant and fresh information about the sector. We would also like to take this opportunity to remind you that if you are not yet subscribed to our weekly newsletter Postharvest News (Monday), you can sign up for free HERE and keep up to date with all the most important news in the sector.

1st Citrus Postharvest Conference
The Instituto Valenciano de Investigaciones Agrarias (IVIA) and Poscosecha.com / Postharvest.biz are organizing the 1st Citrus Postharvest Conference that will take place on Thursday, September 15, at 3:30 p.m. in the IVIA assembly hall. The objective of the Conference is to be an annual meeting point between trading, industry and research and a forum for discussion between the main actors in the value chain. For this, a commercial and technical analysis of the previous campaign will be carried out and the forecasts and postharvest commercial developments for the next citrus campaign will be presented. ATTENTION: FREE EVENT but with LIMITED PLACES. We appreciate prior registration through this LINK

We take this opportunity to thank the participation of the sponsoring companies of the Conference: AgroFresh, BION - Bioconservación, Citrosol, Decco, Domca, Enfrío, Fedemco, JBT, Maf Roda, Matyc, Panelfrío, Sanifruit, UNIQ and Xeda Ibérica


VI Postharvest Technology Course - Citrus and Emerging Crops in the Mediterranean Region in on-site and on-line format (Spanish Version)
One more year, we are already working on the sixth edition of the Postharvest Technology Course - Citrus and emerging crops in the Mediterranean region that will take place at the beginning of 2023 at the Universitat Politècnica de València (Spain). Given the success of last year's edition, this year it will once again be held in both presential and on-line formats. The pandemic has left us with many bad things, but it has also allowed us to update and improve our teaching options. That is why we will once again be using the streaming modality so that people who cannot travel to Valencia will also have the opportunity to participate in this course. This includes people from different parts of Spain as well as people interested in expanding their knowledge of citrus fruits from anywhere in the world. The classes are recorded and the course participants will be able to enjoy them whenever they wish.


Publication of the book "Tecnología Hortícola Mediterránea: Evolución y Futuro".
We are also working on the publication of the book "Tecnología Hortícola Mediterránea: Evolución y Futuro", which is still open for participation and we encourage all Agri-tech companies to contribute with their knowledge and sponsorship. The book deals with recent developments and technologies for open air and greenhouse growing, such as: seeds, seedlings, nurseries, substrates, fertigation, greenhouses, air conditioning, sanitation, plastics and agricultural nets, machinery, analysis, automation, sensors, software, …. Therefore, the aim of this publication is to become a reference for producers to improve efficiency and profitability.

 

The whole Postharvest Team wishes you a happy summer break and if you are reading this from the southern hemisphere, Happy winter!
