Land under water

You might wonder what this photo is doing on a site for a bulb growing business? Is it the Amstelmeer lake?
No it isn’t, it’s the flooded land around our business, located in Callantsoog. The entire surface area of 10 ha is 10 cm deep in water. We do this to prevent disease and weed. The plot will stay like this for 4 months. Green manure crops will then be sowed at the beginning of August and tulips and hyacinths will be planted again at the end of October.
