The goal of this session is to give detailed organic cultural information for locally suitable medicinally important species, as well as targeting growing niches and crops that do well under specific conditions. Nursery operations including greenhouses, other season extension aids, propagation techniques and media are also covered.
Trainees can expect to gain information for starting and managing plants in an herb nursery and choosing appropriate plant species.
The risks associated with medicinal herb propagation are economical (start ups require available funds); agricultural knowledge will lessen risk of crop issues, diverse skills in building and maintenance are necessary to agricultural operations. Locations with extreme conditions may pose limiting economic and plant variety factors.
After reviewing this module, refer to the Review Questionnaire to reinforce information presented under this topic.
