The workshop was divided into two parts. The first was the indoor section and the second was outdoor implementation.

The indoor section focused on the management of diseases and pests, fertilizers and chemical application, cultivation management and what the farmers should do during the flower initiation and harvesting period.

The farmers even received an exquisite pineapple guideline brochure, which was designed by Jeremie Wong.

The outdoor section discussed what to notice when using the sprayer and implementation of spraying the Ethen.

If the farmers know the benefit of production scheduling and are able to successfully implement the technique, everybody can enjoy the beauty of the pineapples, also farmers can avoid harvesting at the same time which will give them a better price.
