We came to NEUQUEN to learn about the fruit industry and to give a presentation to all the growers at the request of Welcome Sauer and his company AgroFresh. Dale's topic was the future of the apple and pear industry. Dr. Gene Kupferman from WSU, spoke on three topics related to the chemical Smart Fresh. The audience was great and they asked many questions. The local newspaper interviewed both speakers and referred to us as "International Experts".
Afterwards we had a great tapas party at the Saurus Winery which included sushi made with fresh Chilean salmon. There were steak sandwiches too, of course. When this winery was developed ten years ago, they dug up a gigantic dinosaur skelton which was on display. It was a great event. Gail
