Eco Farm Conference. Chinese Medicinal herbs: A Unique Opportunity for Farmers. Presentation with David Melly, LAc and President of Lilium Initiative: American Grown Asian Herbs. Meet the Experts consultations Jan. 24, sign up at https://eco-farm.org/conference
Chinese medicinal herbs are steadily becoming an emerging market — with few growers to satiate demand for these high-value botanicals. Compelling environmental reasons and the over-harvesting of wild herbs to the brink of extinction in Asia are only amplifying the call for more farmers to get involved in this market. We will discuss what makes this market different and what skills and processes are required to succeed that are unique from growing other crops.
