Iris cropnews 2011

Cropnews Iris 2011

The harvest of the irisbulbs is almost starting again. The growing season has been very unsteady. Shortly after planting there was a long period of early frost.

In spring a normal crop appeared, even though it has been very dry during the growing season. Therefore the growers irrigated a lot, a normal harvest is expected.

The French iris bulbs are being harvested and so far it looks like a fairly normal harvest. The trade of irises is a little behind compared to last year.
