The event was hosted by the Chinese Society for Horticultural Science (CSHS) and Huazhong Agricultural University in collaboration with the People’s Government of Gongcheng Yao Autonomous County and Guilin University of Electronic Technology, etc., under the auspices of the International Society for Horticultural Science (ISHS). We have great pleasure to invite you to attend this symposium and enjoy the tour in China, the top producer of persimmon in the world.

The theme of the symposium is ‘History, Genetic Diversity and Industry’.

The symposium will focus on the theme related to persimmon scientific research and industry issues specially addressing on following topics

● Origin, evolution and cultivation history
● Genetic diversity and utilization in genetics research and breeding
● Standard cultivation for safe and high quality production
● Fruit de-astringency, storage, transportation and logistics
● Various innovative products R&D with marketing system

There are pre- and optional post- symposium tours including onsite visiting typical orchards and productive enterprise in main persimmon area and Chinese famous ancient resort.
