Czech blue poppy seed traders continue to fear low yields due to the predominantly cool and humid weather in recent months. The poppy plants could not develop as hoped for, which is why quality and quantity still remain uncertain for the time being. In any case, the yields of the winter sowing were not very satisfactory.

New crop at old prices
