Crocus sativus

Sun, 02 Dec 2012 14:32:19 PST
Dear All,

The new blog : is an invitation to anyone
involved in the cultivation of Crocus sativus at a small scale or at a
professional farming level, willing to share knowledgeable observations on
the plant.

Very interestingly, blooming peak dates vary from year to year, but
curiously, they tend to be synchronized between saffron farms accross vast
geographical areas and climate zones.
Because the phenomenon is insufficiently documented to be studied
statistically, and because it seems, from informal discussions between
French saffron farmers, that regular reports of synchronizations exist, a
first thread on this topics was launched today.
You are most welcome to join in French or in English.

Kind regards.

Dr. Christian Lachaud, PhD
