    What are you growing the poppies for?
    Don't itch for something if you're not prepared to scratch for it.

    Under state control, have permission to extraction in Turkey. Poppy shell is used for medication. Poppy seeds are used in kitchen work.

    Probably for the alkaloid content for pain relief drugs - as in Tasmania, where it's a major industry.

    Started here by English botanist Stephen King who failed year after year post war to successfully grow them in England.

    When he looked around the world for suitable places, he settled on Victoria, but the Victorian police would have none of it. With time remaining on his boat ticket, he came to Tas. for a look - and the rest is history!

    I have a personal connection: his polymath son designed the Weedswiper control circuit, as far as we know the first successful wiper controller with electronic feedback control for optimum efficiency. (Sorry, couldn't resist praising him).
