TARF Holds the 19th Agricultural Technology Workshop on March 28, 2017

 

The 19th TARF Agricultural Technology Workshop “Propagation of Tropical Fruit Trees by Grafting” will be held on March 28 (Tue), 2017 with the aim of introducing tropical fruit trees that can be propagated by grafting, tree grafting methods and potting of grafted seedlings.

Overview

The JIRCAS Tropical Agriculture Research Front (TARF) will hold the 19th Agricultural Technology Workshop "Propagation of Tropical Fruit Trees by Grafting" on March 28 (Tue), 2017. In many cases, it is possible to propagate tropical fruit trees by using grafting. This year's event will provide the general public with an opportunity to learn about tropical fruit trees that can be propagated by grafting, the method of grafting (lychee grafting method), and potting of grafted seedlings with actual practice in the field.

About the 19th Agricultural Technology Workshop

The JIRCAS Tropical Agriculture Research Front (TARF) conducts research that contributes to the sustainability of agriculture and the stable production of agricultural products in tropical and subtropical developing regions of the world. The TARF agricultural technology workshop aims to introduce some of its research activities to the general public in an easy-to-understand manner in the hope that the information will help the public understand the research activities and contribute to their daily lives.

This is the 19th workshop since the first one was held in May 2008. This year's topic, "Propagation of Tropical Fruit Trees by Grafting," will introduce the method of grafting tropical fruit trees. Even if you are not proficient in grafting or have difficulty in grafting tropical fruit trees, you may be able to propagate them by grafting. For this reason, grafting is an important technique used to propagate tropical fruit trees in Southeast Asia. Mastering the technique is useful in fruit tree cultivation. This year's workshop will provide the general public with an opportunity to learn about tropical fruit trees that can be propagated by grafting, grafting methods, and how to pot up grafted seedlings with actual field practice.
