The 10th Citrus Research Symposium will be held at the Champagne Sports Resort in the Drakensberg from Sunday, 19 August 2018 to Wednesday evening, 22 August 2018. Situated in the tranquillity of the Central Drakensberg, boasting the most spectacular view of Champagne Castle and Cathkin Peak, lies Champagne Sports Resort (CSR).  The hideaway’s unique combination of convenient location, country club atmosphere, accommodation and friendly staff makes it an ideal venue for CRI’s Citrus Research Symposia.
 
The symposium will give feedback on citrus research conducted for the southern African citrus industry during the previous two years. This research has been conducted by researchers from CRI, several universities, the ARC and researchers from the private sector. The symposium will be attended by a wide spectrum of citrus industry role players including: citrus producers and their technical staff; citrus consultants (SASCCON); citrus exporters; the citrus nursery industry (SACNA); the Citrus Improvement Scheme (CIS), members of the CRI Postharvest Technical Forum (PTF) which includes packhouses, the paper and carton manufacturing companies, PPECB and logistics service providers; the chemical industry; and delegates from other related industries such as the suppliers of spraying, fertilising and irrigation equipment.
 
This symposium will host international guest speakers as keynote speakers. BASF will be the main sponsor, Plusnet will be sponsoring the golf day, Arysta Lifescience will be sponsoring the Welcoming Dinner, FNB will be sponsoring the Tuesday night dinner, SAPPI the Gala Dinner, Villa Crop Protection the entertainment at the Gala Dinner and River Bioscience the drinks during the Happy Hour.
