COLEACP and SPEG: awareness sessions on use of ethephon for pineapples exported to the EU

COLEACP and SPEG (Sea-Freight Pineapple Exporters of Ghana) are collaborating to organise awareness sessions on the appropriate use of ethephon for the export of pineapples to the EU. The first of two sessions took place on the 30th October in Pokrom region, with around 30 producers. Participants included conventional pineapples producers/cooperatives supplying third-party companies exporting to the EU, or exporting themselves to the EU.

The session included field and packhouse observation of samples of sprayed fruits reserved from previous exports, along with theoretical information on the EU legislation on the use of ethephon (MRL notifications), crop management practices, and responsible use of plant health products.
