ARRA Field Day: Egypt
This year, as every year, the Grapa team participated in the Egyptian field day to see the first ARRA varieties to ripen in the Mediterranean region. As well as visiting the commercial plantations, the team were very excited to observe for the first time, the new, very early ARRA selections to ripen in Egypt.
The participants enjoyed the opportunity to see the encouraging ARRA selections; white ARRA 9A-3+1, red ARRA 7A-40+1 and black ARRA 24A-15+3 and were very impressed with what they saw. There will be another opportunity to view these selections in California in July, where they will be presented at the early ARRA Field Day.
