XI International Symposium on Banana: ISHS-ProMusa Symposium on Growing and Marketing Banana under Subtropical Conditions

12-17 August 2018 Istanbul, Turkey
This symposium is organized as part of IHC 2018 and will take stock of recent developments in subtropical banana production and marketing, building on concepts and approaches presented during previous symposia.
The first ISHS symposium on ‘Banana in the Subtropics' was held in 1998. In 2010, the ISHS Sections on Banana and Plantain and on Tropical and Subtropical Fruits jointly organized a symposium on ‘Citrus, Bananas and other Tropical Fruits under Subtropical Conditions'.
Eight years after the last symposium on banana in the subtropics, stakeholders in the subtropical banana sector will benefit from a state-of-the-art of the latest technological advances for the production and marketing of this tropical crop under subtropical conditions.
Scientists and growers will be able to discuss alternative production, post-harvest and marketing technologies for more environmentally, socially and economically sustainable value chains.
