Canadian Haskap Symposium

Canadian Haskap Symposium
The haskap, this small fruit whose cultivation is relatively new in Quebec, will be the subject of the 1st Canadian Symposium. Production has grown exponentially since 2011 and this emerging culture is also accompanied by a knowledge deficit at the level of culture management.
This event will therefore allow the advancement of knowledge and the improvement of production techniques on various aspects required for the production of haskap.
Collaborative event
                        
 
Several cutting-edge conferences will be presented during this symposium and several renowned provincial and international speakers will be present. This symposium will allow you to acquire in-depth knowledge related to research and innovation which can be transferred to real production conditions. .
