Last weekend Meiosis attended the Best Berries trade show in Lublin, Poland, for the second time. This fairly small event takes place in the heart of the main raspberry growing region in Poland, which makes it strategically important to the whole Polish berry industry. It was a good opportunity for us to meet some of our licence holders and friends.
This year the organizers decided to bring the date of the show forward from December. Unfortunately, it did not seem to work very well as the exceptionally warm weather kept fruit growers busy in the fields. The total number of visitors was 2230.
On Sunday the II Eastern Strawberry Conference took place with the main theme – ‘Technologies and varieties for difficult times.’ We particularly welcomed Mr Zwierzynski’s comments about the importance of respecting the Breeders’ rights to varieties.
