Pg. 54-55 Report on the 1996 Thailand Litchi Visit

At the invitation of the Thailand Institute for Scientific and Technological Research, and with generous sponsorship of the airfare by the South African Litchi Growers’ Association, the author spent 12 days in Thailand during May 1996. The
purpose of the visit was twofold. Initially, a study trip to the two major litchi producing areas in Chiangmai and Chiangrai was undertaken during the first week. During the second week, post-harvest litchi research was conducted at the Thailand Institute for Scientific and Technological Research in Bangkok. This report gives an account of the study visit to Chiangmai and Chiangrai and touches briefly on the results obtained for the postharvest studies conducted in Bangkok.
