Trading in Tulips
Produced by: Michele Ernsting
Trading in Tulips has been a Dutch mainstay since the 1500's, when the first tulip bulb arrived from Turkey. Since then the Dutch have created a multi-billion dollar industry. Now, scarcity of land, new pesticide regulations and vastly improved air transportation are pushing the Dutch to grow their bulbs elsewhere, including Turkey and China. Producer Michelle Ernsting of Radio Netherlands, brings you the story of one family, who has almost completely moved their operations overseas. This will be the last year they grow their tulips in Holland.
