Roger,
I am from Kashmir and in late October and November went to Pampore to see the saffron flowers, (surprised by the political messages with the write up). Lately the housing boom in the area is cutting down the land under cultivation for saffron, the labor costs of working in saffron fields is getting to high so the farmers are selling there land, Pampore is one of the plateaus were all the saffron grows in Kashmir Valley.
