Wang Keyou, director of Laohekou Research Station of National Pear Industry System, led a delegation of four technicians arrived in Nanjing on January 10, 2011. They visited the pear test and demo park in Lishui Plant Science Base of JAAS. The technicians measured the specifications of three different trellis systems and inquired in detail about the installation requirements.
Wang proposed that during the Twelfth Five-Year Plan period, technicians in Laohekou Research Station should keep in close contact with Prof. Chang Youhong, senior scientist of orchard facilities and tools. At the same time, Laohekou Research Station will strengthen cooperation and exchanges with Xuzhou Pear Experiment Station.
Laohehou Research Station plans to introduce and build the three trellis systems before the pear trees sprout this spring. They will invite the technicians in the Institute of Horticulture of JAAS to their station to give on-site suggestions.
