Welcome to the 4th ISHS Asia Symposium
on Quality Management in Postharvest Systems (AsiaPostharvest2017)
Welcome to the 4th ISHS Asia Symposium on Quality Management in Postharvest Systems (Asia Postharvest 2017). The conference will be held September 12-14, 2017 at the National Institute of Horticultural and Herbal Science (NIHHS), Jeonju, Republic of Korea.
NIHHS, a central government research organization under the umbrella of the Rural Development Administration (RDA), conducts research on breeding, cultivation, and postharvest technology of horticultural and herbal crops.
In March 2015, NIHHS was relocated to Jeonju, a culturally and historically rich city. Now, a huge agricultural research complex including other research institutes of RDA has been established in Jeonju - innovation town. This complex with new facilities and state-of-the-art technologies is enabling rapid progress in agricultural research and development
Jeonju is famous for the largest concentration of the Korean-style houses located in its central area with various traditional facilities. This event ‘Asia Postharvest 2017’ is therefore a rare opportunity to experience this huge agricultural research complex and Korean culture as well. In addition, visiting Korea in September is a very good time to enjoy everything under the sun: landscapes, food and traditions.
Asia Postharvest 2017 organized by NIHHS and Korean Society for Horticultural Science (KSHS) will focus on ways to reduce postharvest losses of horticultural crops. Reduction of postharvest losses is one of the main challenged in Asian and African horticultural industries. This meeting will provide a good chance to share knowledge and experience with each other on the postharvest technology being used in various circumstances.
On behalf of the organizing committee, I am pleased to invite you to come for this conference and get fruitful information.
We look forward to seeing you in Asia Postharvest 2017.
Dr. Ji Gang Kim
Convener of the Asia Postharvest 2017
