There has always been a great passion for tropical crops, mainly fruits, and because anywhere within our boundaries we might find scientists working with such crops, knowledge in tropical horticulture is therefore needed.

This 1st International Symposium on Tropical Horticulture is an opportunity to bring together researchers, technologists, workers, and commercial users interested in tropical crops. The dual aims are to promote information exchange and linkages between specialists, and to foster interchange between those with different scientific emphases in studying tropical crops.
