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.
