HERMOSILLO, MX – The Mexican Table Grape Growers Association (AALPUM) will be hosting the 2nd International Table Grape Symposium in Hermosillo, Mexico on February 5 and 6, 2015.
The event, which is held every two years, will take place in the Mexican state of Sonora, which is the largest producer of table grapes in that country, according to a press release.
With production in that state primarily intended for the export market, farmers have adopted new technologies and practices there to succeed in producing early and sustainable crops. AALPUM and its partners will be showcasing those technological advancements at the Symposium.
The first Symposium, which was held in January of 2013, featured 18 national and international exhibitors. The AALPUM is building on that event and driving quality improvements for next year’s event with international assistance and more speakers from the Table Grape Industry.
Industry members, producers, technical advisors and researchers are all invited to attend. To register for the event, click here.
