This is true,  and we need to know better the condition,  time,
species and number of their observations.

May be 1000 $ aren't enough for a serious research project

My idea is to to get help this year from a good expert gardener with
many greenhouses near me,I got his help and he thinks to grow some
varieties in pots while I 'll plant in ground,  horticultural way  is
right in my opinion.

I agree and i may help the AEG with money if something good is proposed
and someone ( a group) offers ( repaid by the fund) his work: Eric
Gouda in NL ??? , Gusman?????.......

we need a protocol and  anyone with ideas can help with suggestions
about:   Species to observe, number of specimens, number of controls,
soils , natural climate conditions, different climate conditions
(greenhoses), fertilizers, loss of tubers, causes of loss, diseases and
Reading about a N.Zealand Callas grower he made a simple control about
better soil and chemicals to avoid rotting and used nearly 500 tubers
in different conditions to get and idea about rotting rates. I'll post
the linkurl if i'll find it again.
