Strawberry is an important item in domestic production next to tomato and it is also an essential fruit for both producers and consumers. Moreover, the high quality strawberry produced in Japan is recognized worldwide and is attracting attention as a promising export item. However the domestic strawberry regions faces many common problems such as decrease in cultivation area due to aging of producers/farmers, gradual decrease in production volume, and a decrease in consumption etc.
In this symposium, the research results of domestic and overseas strawberry production will be reported. We will have discussion to strengthen cooperation with regional research institutions and to advance efficient technology development in addition to organizing the present state and issues of technology development. Moreover, we invite the principal researchers of strawberry research from East Asia, especially from Korea and China, where production system and consumption pattern are similar to Japan. This symposium will be a venue for exchange opinions on information about production trends, breed development, present state and issues of cultivation technology and would also discuss the possibilities of international collaboration and cooperation.
