Our lily field check for Crop 2018 Dutch

Despite the 12 warm weeks we faced in Holland, most of the lily leafs are good on color. Our best bulb growers have given extra water against the dryness.

Visually our field check showed more compact crops than other years. This is not applicable for all the lots.

We can see a clear difference between the early and late plantings. The crop of the early plantings is a lot taller than the late plantings. De-budding of the lilies took place approximately 10 days later than other years.

We cannot say much about the bulb development. Our estimation is that there will be a slight delay in the growth of the bulbs. So the coming two months will have a big influence on the further bulb development.
