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 On Line PQMHP 2021 will be an excellent chance for researchers to exchange their expertise on tropical horticulture and postharvest. Building new and confident researcher network to continue developing RELIABLE TECHNIQUES FOR OUR PEOPLE is possible although the presence of SARS-COV2. Be sure that joining this PQMHP 2021 on line event will help improving the horticulture in our tropical regions. I humbly recommend you to mark on your agenda the coming October 6, 2021 and join PQMHP.

We, the Scientific and Editorial Committee as well as the Local Organizing Committee, are preparing all the necessary to make On Line PQMHP 2021 one of your greatest academic and personal experiences.
I hope to meet you next October 2021.
