Annual Maluma Symposium

Although this symposium was initially held solely as an information session to farmers, it has developed into a cross-platform information and networking symposium.

The main aim is to stimulate thought into what the modern agriculture environment brings about and, what farmers and other intermediaries can do to improve on the final product delivered to the consumer.

What to expect

Maluma symposium 2019 will be held provisionally on 13 & 14 March. Make sure you don't miss it!

The Maluma symposium is open for all avocado farmers - please sign up for the newsletter to receive your invitation and more information about the symposium. Invitations will be sent out around December 2018, and the provisional program will be release around January 2019.

Day 1 (13 March 2019) will consist of discussions on various relevant topics (presentations) and workshops in the form of open discussions from a panel as well as attendees.

On day 2 (14 March 2019) we will head into the orchards and discuss different orchard practices and production techniques.
