International Strawberry Symposium heads to Beijing

Claimed to be the largest event of its type in the world, the seventh International Strawberry Symposium will take place next month, near Beijing in China, on 18-22 February.

Co-organised by the International Society for Horticultural Science, it will focus on freshness, sustainability and health.

Among the international roster of speakers, East Malling Research plant breeder David Simpson will present an overview of northern European work.

There will also be demonstrations of the latest equipment and technology as well as tours of production sites.

The surrounding Changping district is home to more than 3,000 strawberry growers, managing a production area of 30sq km and yielding 7,500 tonnes per year.
