Back another year more of our visit to the fair of Madrid “Fruit attraction” we highlight a great level of satisfaction. The stay these days at the fair has been totally positive, with an extraordinary participation of the horticultural industry. We have become more loyal to our customers and have closer relations with new clients thanks to the great work of our commercial department.
This year we will be again in International Fair "FRUIT ATTRACTION" of Sector Fruits and Vegetables and will be celebrated in Madrid in the coming days. We will be happy to receive your visit at our Stand 6C01 - Hall 6.
The II Technical Conference on tropical crops in Malaga, organized by the Spanish Association of Producers of Tropical Fruits, recently took place, and we would like to thank the Association for showing our cultivators how to adapt their tropical products to the area and to optimize their crops. They also learned how important the correct irrigation is for higher quality and improved production.
To be aware of the preferences of European consumers in order to analyze their capacity of consumption surely will help us to improve the viability of our product in the near future.

Journey with technicians "La Mayora"
A few weeks ago a group of agriculturists from Nerja and Frigiliana met with the technicians of "La Mayora" (Subtropical and Mediterranean agricultural Institute). The meeting was organized by the Town Hall of Nerja and the County Council of Malaga to discuss subtropical species that already are cultivated in this area, like avocados, cherimoyas and mangos, and also to talk about new varieties such as lychees, loganberries and gooseberries.
They discussed ways of better production and how to achieve good quality, and of course it was recommended to use ecological techniques for pest control, e.g. in case of infestation with persea mite.
The job the professionals of La Mayora are doing is highly appreciated, as they carry out test series, checks, data entry and data analysis, and share their results with the agriculturists who finally make good use of it and put it into practice.
