Local and global analysis
Inaugurating the meeting, Cort Brazelton will participate especially, who will make a complete report on the global blueberry industry, also covering the behavior of the markets and the projections and tasks of the international industry for the short and medium term.

The researcher will give the talk: "Effects of radiation and excess heat on blueberries: background and mitigation strategies", in which he will face the problem and the strategic variants that can be developed to mitigate its impact.
We know that excessive heat causes damage to the development of the plant and the fruit, because the higher the heat there is more evaporation and less water absorption, which results in a weaker plant, with less dense foliage, which often in turn exposes the fruit to more radiation.
His presentation and analysis: “International blueberry situation”, will be very important for all those attending the meeting, who, in addition to the content and data delivered on the current situation of the blueberry market, will reveal the various strategies that the industry has planned to increase demand and raise the position of blueberries in the world market.
