Smartcherry will offer exclusive coverage of the III Early Fresh Cherry Seminar in Mendoza

On April 16th and 17th, a new edition of the International Early Fresh Cherry Seminar of Mendoza will take place, and Smartcherry will be there to cover all the details of this important event.

The event will last for two days, during which there will be different presentations and a field day. Among the topics to be addressed in the lectures are: commercial profitability; financing tools; myths and realities of producing in early and marginal areas, a presentation that will be given by Jorge Astudillo, Production Manager of Agroindustrial Valle Arriba, Co-founder of the Early Cherry Seminar of Ovalle.

“The invitation extended to me by the Cherry Chamber of Mendoza and the government of Mendoza stems from a relationship we have been building between the two regions. They have come to Ovalle to be part of the seminar, with speakers sharing their experiences, and I was invited to recount all the experiences we have accumulated over time. In particular, the talk will address the myths and realities regarding the production of early and marginal cherries based on the experience we have gathered, not only with the Brooks variety but also with other varieties from which I have been able to gather more information. The importance of participating in this type of event is also to understand the reality of a region that is similar to ours, even in terms of harvest dates, although not necessarily in the commercial aspect,” commented Jorge Astudillo.

In addition, there will be a section dedicated to the progress of the evaluation of the Frisco cultivar in Luján de Cuyo, Mendoza; management factors of the Santina variety; the importance of soil in cherry production, led by the Chilean advisor, specialist in plant nutrition and soil health, Lucas Ferrada; strategic monitoring for better frost management in cherries; cracking; solar energy, among other interesting topics.

“Today we have a great turnout, and the truth is that this event has already become well-established, both with producers from the 5 cherry-producing provinces of Argentina and also from Chile. The focus is mainly on the early zone of Chile, with whom we have been coordinating very well with the people of Ovalle. Argentine speakers participate in the event taking place next May in Ovalle, and Chilean speakers participate in this event. Obviously, we continue to unite our future in the production of cherries, increasingly earlier,” said Facundo Quiros, Manager of the Cherry Chamber of Mendoza.
