Pg. 52 Visit to Madagascar and the Import of Promising Plant Material as well as Six Promising Cultivars from Israel

The rapid growth in exports from Madagascar to Europe between 1986/87 and 1994/95 led to various visits by South African researchers and farmers to this island. The possibility of obtaining other cultivars, selections or promising seedlings prompted the visit reported on here. The aim of the visit was to study the Madagascan litchi industry and their export procedures and to investigate the possibility of importing promising litchi plant material into South Africa.
