Saffron: Perfecting Production & Market Opportunities

Davis Center, Univ. of Vermont
Burlington, VT

Since 2015, UVM scientists have been studying the cultivation of saffron in protected environments and in open fields. They have obtained yields greater than what is reported in traditional saffron-growing areas of Asia and Europe. Hundreds of farmers across the US are now growing saffron with great success, and they are eager to learn more. Saffron experts from Vermont and Rhode Island, and growers from Vermont and Maine will share their knowledge on production. Specialists will speak about post-harvest handling regulations and a cancer specialist will discuss saffron medicinal properties. Both on-site and on-line registration options are available. To learn more about the workshop and to register, go to the UVM saffron website at:
