The first technical nursery days in Colombia

The Association of Colombian Nursery Growers, Colviveros, along with the Secretary of Economic Development of Fusagasugá, Asovis and Flormacoop, held on November 30 and December 1, 2017 the First National Technical Nursery Days, which took place in the municipalities of Fusagasugá and Chinauta.

According to the president of Colviveros, Jairo Cadavid, the event offered technical updates, a sample of inputs, and field visits to a group of 120 national producers of live plants, in order to introduce the new developments of the main producing region of plants and ornamentals of Colombia.
During the academic agenda carried out at the Chamber of Commerce of Fusagasugá, small producers received guidance from recognized experts on aspects such as substrate management, pests and diseases in living plants, clean production systems, interpretation of soil analysis reports, nursery management, and the physiology of plants in the nursery environment.

They also participated in conferences on breeder's rights, marketing and sales of plants and ornamentals, as well as the presentation of the characterization of nurseries in this region of the country handled by the University of Cundinamarca.
