The purple misty dreamy lavender fields have brought visitors from around the world to Tasmania, and they`ve done everything they can to get the perfect photo in the lavender fields. But some farmers say over-passioned visitors are destroying their crops.

More than a year ago, Tony and Denise Cox, the couple, left their tropical fruit farm on New Zealand`s North Island and moved to Tamar Valley in northern Tastate.

The couple now run a lavender farm and a fragrance factory, but often see visitors trampling their crops. "When they decided to take lavender as an armchair and sit in the middle for a photo shoot, I was so miserable because lavender didn`t like that and we had a lot of bush damage in the process," Denise said. "

It could be a devastating blow to a small farm after farmers lost rows of lavender as tourists took a wild selfie.

Meanwhile, Bristowe, Australia`s largest lavender farm in the north-east of the state, faces a similar problem.

Robert Ravens, the farm`s managing director, said:`While they`re asking visitors to line up and respect the flower fields, it`s sometimes too much of a freewheeling tempo. "Yes, they pick flowers, they step on crops, they do all sorts of stupid things," he said. "

Dirty shoes pose biosafety risks

Despite not wishing for the lavender crop to be damaged, Lavons is most concerned about biosafety risks, as many visitors enter the farm every day.

"The biggest risk we face is biosafety because the shoes that visitors wear have been in contact with contaminated ground in Asia or Europe," he said. "In any case, visiting the Lavender Farm is still a good choice for many visitors to the state.

Luke Martin, head of the Tourism Council, said operators need to put up bright signs and send a clear message," tell visitors where to take the perfect photo and have plenty of room for it."

"Visitors want to follow the rules, just encourage them and tell them what to do," he said. "Finally, the Coxes decided to open up a special photo-taking space for visitors on the farm to protect their crops. "We will place the seat and place more portable lavender pots around it to reduce damage. "
