The latest developments in the stone fruit sector will be presented at the second edition of the Xtrema Fruit National Stone Fruit Forum, which, due to the situation caused by the coronavirus pandemic, will take place online on November 5, 2020, from 4.30 to 8.00 pm, through the Agromunity.com platform (with more than 2,000 agricultural professionals from around the world registered).
The impact of the entry into force in January 2021 of the new European regulation for organic products, or the situation of the stone fruit sector ahead of the next campaign, will be some of the topics addressed in the framework of its technical program.
The seminars will be divided into different thematic blocks: Fertigation, Plant health, New varieties and alternative crops, Organic farming and Marketing. In the latter, there will be a round table with representatives of the associations of stone fruit producers of Extremadura, Murcia and Catalonia, which account for most of the Spanish production (Afruex, Apoexpa and Afrucat). They will analyze and debate on the situation of the sector.
The list of experts who will participate as speakers includes researchers from institutions such as Cicytex (Center for Scientific and Technological Research of Extremadura) or SEAE (Spanish Society for Organic Agriculture), as well as leading companies such as Bayer or Plantae.
The online event also has the support of ICL Specialty Fertilizers, Alimentos de Extremadura, Eurofirms and Fruit Logistica.
Those interested in attending the event can make their registration effective, free of charge, through the official website of the event www.xtremafruit.es, where the technical program will be presented in the coming days.
