The IHC2018 will 'Bridge the World through Horticulture' and will establish a forum for exchange of experiences, knowledge and friendship. Taking this opportunity, we wanted to offer two short trainings for participants who want to enlarge their professional capacity on Organic Management or on Good Agricultural Practices and widen their networks. The lecturers will be given well-known experts coming from academia, NGOs and the private sector. The tentative program may undergo fine tuning based upon the profiles of the participants but will ensure attendance to the IHC2018 scientific sessions. Training programs are free of charge to the International Horticultural Conference participants however the number of participants for each course is limited with 25.
Short Training Course on Organic Agriculture
AIM:Organic markets are enlarging in developed countries creating a strong sink also for raw or processed horticultural products. The 30th International Horticultural Congress holds a symposium on Organic Horticulture among others. The short course aims to give the necessary background information for the interested participants who will get the chance to attend the Symposium and enhance their knowledge on organic horticultural crop management and markets
