Lilium crop 2015

In general the harvest of the large sizes of both LA, oriental and OT varieties is disappointing up till now.
At this moment the biggest problem is the relatively warm and wet weather. Due to the high temperature, the new sprout in the bulb already starts to grow, which is no problem in case you can dig up the bulbs in time, but because of the heavy rains, the growers cannot enter the field and they are forced to wait until it gets dry and the water level drops.
The point is that in the coming days still rain is expected and the growers are unable to continue harvesting and processing the bulbs yet.

Gladiolus crop 2015

At this moment the growers are harvesting the gladiolus. The harvest looks normal and the quality is good.

There are relatively some less bigger sizes, but this does not matter, because the demand for sizes 12/14 and 14/16 becomes less.

General harvest expectations lily 2015


LA:
In the North East Polder the growth is good till normal, although harvest of the medium sizes will be certainly less than last year because of too many large sizes, but nevertheless the estimated quantities that have been sold by the growers will be available in general. LA bulbs in other parts of Holland have grown somewhat less, due to too early withering of the plants caused by the humid growing conditions, so probably we will have some shortages.

OT:
In general the growth of OT looks normally, there are no peaks in the big sizes like last year.
 
OR:
the material which has been planted much later, or less rain at the initial growth.
 
We can now clearly see that OT types grow much easier compared to the oriental varieties.

Cropnews Tulip 2015

At this moment the harvest and the processing of the tulips is in full speed. Due to the cold spring the tulip bulbs are harvested around 7 to 10 days later than normal. It is expected that the stadium G will be much later than last year also, but we will know this exactly over around 4 weeks.

Generally the bulbs have grown well and the skin of the bulbs is looking good. The trade of the tulips is going well; the surpluses are traded rapidly.


Iris cropnews 2015

The irises are reasonably well this year, although the plants are a bit shorter than usual because of the cooler weather. In recent weeks it has hardly rained, so that the growers have to water the plants regularly.

VWS connected to CLIENT Export !!!


Today, the 23rd of July 2015, VWS also succeeded to format the phytosanitary certificates digitally from CLIENT Export.

VWS is one of the pilot companies and the last months we have worked on the finalization of the digital chain register, together with the Ministry of Economic Affairs, the NVWA, BKD (inspection service) and Anthos.


The final goal of the chain-register was to authenticate the phytosanitary certificates digitally and with that accomplished, the chain is completed!!

The data of the tests and treatments by the growers and exporters appear in the chain-register of the BKD. This information is linked to the CLIENT Export system of the government, so the exporter can print the phytosanitary certificate.

A big step ahead for the flower bulb sector to more quality assurance and further efficiency!
