Haskap (Lonicera sp.) not so long ago was not common among Polish planters, it was perceived as an amateur plant. The growth of interest in the fruit of this specie is a result of both breeding new varieties and pro- health properties of the fruit.
Haskap Conference will be held on 12th November in Panorama Hotel in Mszczonów. It will be possible to participate in lectures performed by guests from Poland and abroad, to learn about new varieties available on the market, ways of establishing plantations, forming shrubs and combine harvest. A lot of attention will be paid to issues related to possibilities of utilizing fruit dedicated for industrial processing. Research conducted in Poland shows that using machines already available on the market makes mechanical harvesting possible. However, there are certain threats connected to haskap breeding. What kind of threats? These issues will be discussed in Mszczonów on 12th November. Apart from lectures there will also be an exposition. Companies producing seedlings, machinery, tools and solutions necessary for professional haskap cultivation will be present. It will be possible to acquire information directly from producers and suppliers.
Participation in the event is paid. Payment on the spot is Euro 50. Attention! Number of participants is limited, so first come first served. All participants will receive conference materials during registration process, and will be entitled to coffee break and lunch. Everyone interested in honeyberry breeding is welcomed in Mszczonów!
