The traditional two-day Fruit Days in Hradec Králové will not take place in mid-January due to restrictions related to the coronavirus epidemic. If the epidemic situation allows, fruit growers at the Aldis Congress Center in Hradec Králové could meet in an alternative date in mid-March. Martin Ludvík, chairman of the Czech Fruit Growers’ Union, said so. Fruit Days are the largest national event for fruit growers.
Due to the covid epidemic, the Fruit Days in 2021 did not take place at all. The last time the fruit growers met in mid-January 2020 at the then 63rd Fruit Days.
According to current government regulations, a maximum of 100 people can participate in public events. “Fruit days are usually attended by around 400 to 500 people,” Ludvík said.
The aim of the Fruit Growing Days is to take stock of the past year, exchange experiences and discuss the problems and perspectives of Czech fruit growing and agriculture. In addition to fruit growers, the speakers include representatives of the Ministry of Agriculture, the Agrarian Chamber and the State Agricultural and Food Inspection Authority.
The Holovousy Fruit Research and Breeding Institute, which is also a co-organizer of the days, presents its work and results at the event. The professional part is also a part of the Fruit Growing Days. For example, fruit growers are discussing new fruit varieties, agricultural insurance, investment opportunities in orchard restoration or protecting orchards from pests.
