A New Federal  Ginseng Law?

We have a  new Federal  Law  out this season that says that "Wild" ginseng roots have to be at least 5 year old to be harvested?   There are a lot of rumors going around about this new law, but We can not seem to find any facts.  If anyone has the new Law and would email us we will publish it in a Special Edition of the Panax Newsletter and on the web site.

First You Do Not want to judge by the number of Stems on the plant.  I have seen many three stem 20 to 40 year old ginseng plants.  Some ginseng plants just do not develop a four stem.  A prime example is the picture of my father holding a three stem wild ginseng plant.  This picture is at the top of our home page.  www.ginseng-seed.com
Well, how  do you tell if a Ginseng Plant is  5 years old?  It is generally assumed in the 5th. year, they start to develop a rizone, a nubbin, or a neck, up at the top of the plants.  There is a picture of this on our web page.  After the 5th year, you can see that it's very pronounced and if the growers out there in the field will take a look , all he's got to do is clean  the dirt back around the stem to see if the rezone has started to develop.  If it started to develop a neck, they say 5 years, but it sometimes takes 6 or 7 years for that first notch, there should be at least one nubbin or growth ring above that rizone. You should be able to just flick the dirt back and it should be pronounced.  Our dealers should be consciously aware of this new Federal  Law and so should the harvesters.   If it's got a nubbin up there and got the start of a neck to it, then the ginseng plant is old enough to harvest.  If it isn't there, Don't buy them.  This Federal Law can be fairly serious about that.  Give these plants a chance to kind of re-establish themselves.  Pay a little attention to the seeds, they may not be big enough to harvest, but pick the seeds and get them growing back in their Natural Environment.  I'd love to buy some of these wild ginseng seeds where it's legal.  I realize you can't harvest them in Wisconsin but, a lot of the other States can harvest wild ginseng seeds and I'm definitely in the market for them.  We are always in the market for top quality seeds.

here you go micheal.  check this out..........
it's from the Appalachian Ginseng Foundation web page:

Hi Michael, I have in front of me here a letter from Tim Smith{botanist}
with Missouri Department of Conservation dated August 12,
1999.                     Letter starts like this:  Attention Missouri
Ginseng Dealers  " We have received recent information from the U.S.
Fish and Wildlife Service's Office of Scintific Authority{OSA} that will
affect Misouri's 1999 ginseng harvest season which begins September 1,
1999.  The OSA has established a minimum age requirement for wild or
woods-grown ginseng roots to be exprted.  The change in export
requirements does not affect roots of cultivated
ginseng.                  Under this recent ruling, export will be
approved only of roots of plants that were at least five years old at
harvest time.  If shipments of ginseng roots younger than five years of
age reach export locations they may be refused shipment after inspection
by USDA Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service inspectors.  If
dealers purchase roots that are younger than five years old, they may
have difficulty reaselling them.  If young roots reach ports and are
refused shipment, the ginseng market may suffer from the uncertainity of
commerce with other countries."    The letter goes on  there is a phone
number at Missouri Relay Center at 1 800 735-2966       I talked to
dealers last year here in Missouri and from what root buyers told me was
folks can come inspect their barrels of ginseng dumping entire contents
of roots on ground damaging the good ginseng while looking for young
roots.  I've heard from ginseng buyers here in Missouri they will have
two different locations storing ginseng roots so the inspectors won't
see entire shipment.  If government persists underground ginseng is a
reality.  Dealers have said so, they may pay cash just to avoid
inspectors.  Email if you have any questions.  Best Regards, Lindy of
Ozark Mountain Ginseng

Michael. there are also 2 stem older plants as well ,altho i have found
very few, nonetheless,i HAVE found them. And Ginseng also 'sleeps'.
I have been watching my own planted patchs
and know that they wll not send up a top every year-some plants that is.
So to establish a
'guaranteed' way of determining age prior to
actually digging a plant is a bit of nonsense.
I have a copy of last years newsletter (someplace) that outlines that
law-i was fairly
certain that it was thrown out. If not, it needs to be. Minimal
government interference and a strong forum for harvesting, planting, and
so forth would be a wiser step. As always , money
and need will allow quarter for some persons to be less than responsible
when it comes to harvesting-but governement interference is by far a
worse situation. I am part native amerinidian and abide by the
conservation policy that was instilled in my youth. I always
plant back. I also plant in new places. And if
i inadvertantley dig or injure a smallplant-i do waht i can to get it
back to growing. there is no 'law' or government mandate thatwill insure
a better method of harvesting, whereas, constant and serious education
of the 'reasons' for not
digging future potetntial is a much better platform. I like what you are
doing with your site. It IS educational . Also -you Do buy seeds? If so
what do you give and how do you like them? As far as i am aware
,Illinois has no law against a harvest. Anyway, just thought id give my
input.                     sincerely.

"Free Visual Site "
Evaluations
With A  Camera 

A  service being offered by Glacial Ginseng Company is a visual site evaluation from pictures taken with a camera.   A question that I am being asked is "do I have a good site for growing ginseng?" one picture is worth a thousand words, and so what I am proposing to do is to have you go to your woods and starting in the southwest corner, walk towards the northeast corner, at about 2:00 in the afternoon. 

Take pictures to your left and to your right as you walk.  The number of pictures is kind of up to you and depends on how big a piece of land you are working with, shoot up the rest of the film that is in your camera, a half a dozen good pictures on a ten acre woods should give me an idea of what your site is like.  Adjust the number of pictures by the size of your woods.   Have someone stand about 20 yards away and try to get the bottom of their feet just nicely in the picture.  Take some pictures of some of the places that you think ginseng might do well in and I will evaluate those. 
wpe19.jpg (55095 bytes) wpe18.jpg (50157 bytes)
After evaluation of your pictures and judging from the shade, etc. I will promptly mail you a report that will have my suggestions as to the light requirements and other improvements that you might do to your site, that would improve your chances for successfully growing ginseng, (of course, I will also tell you if your site is not suitable for ginseng growing).

Trees must be at least 54" in circumference at chest height and 8' from the ground to the bottom of the first defect, cat face or limb.
Trees over 100" in circumference have started to over mature and the price per board foot starts to drop rapidly.
Due to the high cost of moving equipment  we must have a minimum of 75 trees, which can usually be met on a 20 acre woods and leave the woods with the right light for growing ginseng. We will not over Harvest any woods for any reason.
We offer full payment in advance, conscientious logging practices, and maximum utilization of all trees harvested.
