Some time ago, Ricardo Márquez, commercial manager of Fall creek, told us: “We in Mexico have four production cycles. From January, February and March, then from April to June, from July to September and from October to December. These are the cycles that move our production and determine the willingness of the plants to move on to another stage of care and development”, for which the visiting specialists and researchers will do so in the middle of the second production cycle.
The importance of genetics
This will be very important technical tour, since it will be possible to verify in the field the answer that Fall creek has sustained in these years, when asked: What is the key factor to have a positive change in blueberries? His sole and total answer is: Genetics.
The reality of the producers and the implementation of various management systems, the behavior of the new varieties, the particularity of pruning in an evergreen system and other aspects of the Mexican reality in blueberry cultivation, will be aspects and experiences that may witness and share the visitors in the field, among which will be María del Carmen Salas, academic and researcher at the University of Almería; Amine bennani, president of the Moroccan Association of Red Fruits; John Paul Bentin, production manager of Family Farms, Peru; Amir Nino de Guzman, corporate operations manager for Valle y Pampa, Peru; Margaret Torres, of the Association of Nurseries of Chile, among others.
