Control of production and price in Dutch flower bulb growing

, : Control of production and price in Dutch flower bulb growing. Acta Horticulturae (77): 245-253

In the Netherlands the possibility of intervention for saleable tulip, hyacinth and daffodil bulbs has existed for some time. In view of the highly price-inelastic demand for bulbs in general, joint intervention schemes for all producerstend to increase turnover. In a market with overproduction, due to seasonal influence or structural surplus, the price level is kept more or less normal.
