Greenhouse vegetable growers looking for practical information on how to produce better tomatoes should make plans to travel to Mexico this July.
The International Tomato Congress, which takes place July 26-28 in León, Guanajuato, Mexico, will celebrate its 12th year in 2017 as a gathering place for fresh tomato growers, consultants, and ag input suppliers from the entire tomato value chain, from seed to market. Leon, which features some of Mexico’s most innovative operations, is the ideal venue to showcase industry successes that have converted Mexico into a greenhouse vegetable powerhouse.
The International Tomato Congress is organized by Meister Media Worldwide (publisher of Greenhouse Grower magazine) and the agriculture production magazine for Mexico and Latin America, Productores de Hortalizas. It attracts more than 500 attendees annually, including growers interested in improving their tomato production techniques, and exporting their supply abroad.
The three-day event offers attendees the opportunity to attend conferences (all educational sessions are translated into English), connect with more than 100 industry representatives at the exposition floor, and tour a tomato greenhouse production company in the region. Packed with educational conferences from start to finish, attendees this year will learn how to promote their plant’s root system health, increase their profit margins through the correct choices of greenhouse technology updates, control pest and diseases biologically, and increase their awareness of export opportunities.
