APPLIED MECHANIZATION OF TULIP-BULB PRODUCTION ON CLAY AND SANDY-CLAY SOILS

J. van den Broek
Mechanization of tulip cultivation on clay and sandy-clay soils has progressed most with respect to the procedures of planting, flower removal and lifting. Further mechanization of these field procedures can be expected soon. Therefore, a change-over from traditional bed growing to growing on ridges will be necessary in most cases. Mechanization of peeling must be seen as an important way to accomplish a further reduction in labour consumption.
