ARRA Technical Seminars in Chile

Each year before pruning, the Grapasa team lead by Karl Conrads, Luis Arancibia and Andrea Castro hold technical seminars for the ARRA Varieties growers.

During the seminars, they discuss the successes and challenges of the previous season and present the protocols and updates. The seminars provide an opportunity for the growers to share their experiences of ARRA Varieties, points of views and discuss any issues that arose during the season. This year the participant turnout was very high, with more than 90% of the growers attending the seminars.

It may have been snowing outside, but indoors the growers from Vicuña and Ovalle were warming up for next season.

All the growers receive files with respective protocols for each variety. The main varieties growing this year; ARRA 15, ARRA 19 and ARRA 29.

Start the season with a Kiss
