7th International Symposium on Olive Growing
25 Sep - 29 Sep 2012
The Seventh International Symposium on Olive Growing will be held in San Juan - Argentina, September 25-29.
The objectives of this Symposium are to promote interaction among scientists, technicians, students and growers, and to encourage cooperation in the development of future research projects. Because this is the first time that the International Symposium on Olive Growing will take place in the Southern Hemisphere, special emphasis will be focused on the challenges of olive growing in non-traditional regions as well as on the diversity of growing conditions that can be encountered.
During the Symposium, participants will have the opportunity to visit local olive groves and industrial oil facilities to discover the unique circumstances that have led to the development of the Argentinean olive industry. Furthermore, the aim of sharing new knowledge and developments with olive growers, contributions dealing with topics of interest for the local olive industry will be selected and simultaneously translated into Spanish during the "open-day" for registered professionals.
