GoodBerry prominently represented at ISHS International Strawberry Symposium in Quebec
The GoodBerry consortium was prominently represented at the next ISHS International Strawberry Symposium, which took place in Quebec City from 13-17 August 2016 and was the meeting place of all those involved in the research and development of the strawberry industry worldwide.
Over the last few years, strawberry production has rapidly expanded globally, owing to the application of strict scientific principles and introduction of innovative management practices. In line with new challenges that lie ahead, the symposium addressed such topics as new breeding advancements, sustainability and safety of production, new cultural management techniques, harvesting efficiency, new marketing strategy, new diseases and pest control, and health benefits of strawberry.
The GoodBerry partners contributed to the symposium as participants as well as in the form of oral presentations and in chairing sessions (see list below).
