The South African Mango Growers’ Association (SAMGA) will host its annual Mango Day this year again at Fairview Hotel, Tzaneen. The event to take place on the 19th of July, continuously this event draws considerable local and international interest.
SAMGA is also fortunate this year to again have an international researcher presenting at the symposium. Dr. Yuval Cohen, of The Volcani Institute in Israel will be our important guest speaker and will present on Mango cultivars and trends in Israel’s mango production industry.
This Symposium serves as a forum for the sharing of research carried out pest and disease management, chemicals, agricultural performance management, and new cultivar selections that are evaluated in all the production areas. Researchers, growers, and processors will not only benefit from the information shared, but will also establish valuable networks.
SAMGA’s research projects are selected annually to address current production issues as well as future needs of the South African Mango Industry. “It is therefore essential to look beyond our borders and collaborate with other mango producing countries to find solutions to problems and build a better industry. The annual mango day provides a platform to do this for the future benefit of our industry and its growers” said Andre Botha SAMGA’s Technical Coordinator.
