Computers threaten saffron harvest

Subject: Computers threaten saffron harvest

 

Over-reliance on technology may doom the United States' latest attempt to produce saffron in commercially significant quantities. The spice comes from the /crocus sativus/ flower, grown primarily in a region stretching from Spain to Kashmir. From (admittedly fragmentary) reports it appears American farmers and entrepreneurs have been using computer- aided methods to attempt to grow this crocus in the American Midwest, perhaps for fear of (or in hopes of) higher tariffs against the import of foreign saffron.

 

 

Unfortunately, the effort has run into a snag: computer malfunctions are said to have messed up the Iowa crocuses.

 

 

(Yeah, I know: it's people like him what cause unrest ...)
