Background: Film shows an unusual harvesting - picking roses on the Vassil Levski co-operative farm in the Levskigrad district.
At present the farm has 70 acres of rose fields, but this is to be increased to 500 acres by the end of the current Five-Year Plan. This year the crop is expected to be over half a ton of rose petals per core.
The farm's floral crop is especially attractive when the red rose - bearing in its petals attar, the rose's fragrant oil - is in season.
