A citizen named Muhammad Al-Zahrani from Al-Baha region narrated his experience in cultivating the saffron plant 4 years ago, indicating that it is a plant of high economic value and has several benefits.
Al-Zahrani said during his interview with Al-Arabiya TV that he started planting small quantities of saffron bulbs, and after 4 years he rehabilitated the land and extracted about 10 thousand bulbs, and replanted them, expecting to harvest more quantities in the coming years.
He explained that saffron is one of the most expensive spices in the world and has an economic, medicinal and nutritional value, noting that its high price in the market encourages farmers to grow it.
He added that he was the first to cultivate saffron in the region and aspires to root this cultivation to support farmers, noting that the nature of the region helps to adopt such plants.
