Latest Cropnews Lilium 2011 / Tulip 2012 and new Mobile Flowerbulb APP

Lilium 2011
1974.jpg
The nurseries are busy with harvesting and with the delivery of the Asiatic and LA varieties. The circumstances for harvesting are perfect.

The results look good, but there is a bit more harvest damage than last year. This as a result of the fairly warm weather of the past weeks: during harvest the bulbs have a higher temperature and this makes the slightly damaged spots “soil” more than they normally do. The temperature has dropped since early this week and you can see that there is less damage.

After the LA and Asiatic, the OT and Oriental are next. Not everywhere, but in different areas they will start harvesting next week. If the weather remains good (no frost) the breeders will be ready with harvesting and processing at the end of December.

Trade: Because of the world-wide insecurity, the foreign nurseries are very reserved and the flower prices are under pressure. This has also an influence on the flower trade which leads to low flower prices.

Tulip 2012
The past weeks the growers have been busy with planting the tulips of crop 2012. At the beginning of October we have had a lot of rain and as a result of the wet weather the growers started planting a bit later this year. Fortunately we have had quite good weather the past weeks and most of the tulips have been planted now. They expect that the sown area will probably be the same as last year.

The sales of crop 2012 are starting slowly and large batches are sold to tulip breeders, mainly in size 10/11 and 11/12 at a sharp price. There is also some trade in relation-lots and varieties which were sold very quickly last year.

At this moment the flower prices of the tulips are sold for a fairly good price at the Dutch auction. This concerns mainly Southern Hemisphere bulbs and ice tulips.
