The Story of the Tulips | Planting to Harvest | One year at Maliepaard Bloembollen

  • Published on Apr 17, 2016
  • This video contains a year round compilation of the tulip cultivation at Maliepaard flowerBulbs in the south west of Holland. This company has more than 130 hectares of tulips and is one of the largest tulip growers in the Netherlands and thus of the world. It uses both the cultivation method using nets and without which requires an extensive and impressive fleet machinery. All the following activities are done in-house:
    - Irrigation with 6 Irrifrance irrigation reels with boom widths from 50 to 70 meters.
    - Spraying using a Challenger RoGator RG 645C self propelled sprayer with 36 meters wide spraying boom.
    - Topping with two New Holland T6.160 Blue Power tractors with 3m and 1.80m wide topping machines.
    - Lifting bulbs using a New Holland T7.270 with Koops net harvester and Ploeger AR-4W in combination with an Earth Eater mobile washing machine.
    - Planting bulbs using a New Holland T7.270 with Koops 1.80m netplanter and a 2x 1.50 Antha van Hienen planter.
    These tulips are growing for the bulbs not for the flowers. The flowers are topped so that the plant is putting all his energy into the development of the bulbs. The bulbs are harvest in the summer where after they been put in storage, in the fall the small bulbs are planted back in the field and the large ones are sold to greenhouse growers where they grown to beautiful tulips for the consumer market.

    Very interesting,so if the bulb needs the nutrients,why let the flower get so advanced.

      That's what is left and didn't make it to the market, or they multiply the bulbs. So they can sell the bulbs for the next year.

    When I watched your video I was hoping to learn more about tulips. There was so little explanation, basically your video shows them planting bulbs, cutting the flowers off only to be discarded , dug up, washed and replanted. You may show the cycle but you do little to educate your viewer. Good photography however.
