As you know, and possible you work with, tropical countries develop their agriculture and economy under severe climatic conditions. Moreover, recently, the global climate change is affecting plant development and, by the way, harvest and postharvest qualities of horticultural commodities. On the other hand, although yield crop is an important factor for developing countries, nowadays the challenges of food safety and environmental-friendly agronomical tasks are becoming necessaries in crop management, production and marketing.

I am pretty sure that PQMHP 2021 will be an excellent chance for researchers to exchange their expertise on tropical horticulture and postharvest. The researcher network is becoming a necessary factor to develop RELIABLE TECHNIQUES FOR OUR PEOPLE; be sure that by sharing interdisciplinary knowledge will be easier to improve the horticulture in our tropical regions. I humbly recommend you to mark on your agenda the coming April 28, 2021 and join PQMHP at Toluca, Central Mexico.

 We, the Scientific and Editorial Committee as well as the Local Organizing Committee, are preparing all the necessary to make PQMHP 2021 one of your greatest academic and personal experiences. Near Toluca City, the venue of PQMHP 2021, is located the most important Mexican ornamental production region, as well as one of the principal avocado production regions. On post congress tours you might enjoy visiting several orchards with tropical species and enjoy the Mexican history and culture.

I hope to shake your hand, next April 2021,
