Abstract:

Following WHO emphasis to grow medicinal plants organically and avoid use of chemicals, pesticides, NMPB, New Delhi had sanctioned this project to author which had expertise in vermitechnology to take-up organic cultivation of medicinal plants and provided technology to farmers. The study was focused to identify the medicinal crops that could be suggested to farmers for cultivation so as to ensure their marketing. The personal interaction with the leading manufacturers of Ayurvedic/Unani drugs under this study has reassured us that they are quite responsive to use authentic genuine raw materials obtained from the cultivation source and through organic farming so as to maintain quality standards of their products, even, if, this is at a comparatively higher cost. Farmers were educated (2006-2009) and trained in cultivation practices of medicinal crops particularly the high demand prioritized species, besides some traditional crops to get higher income returns. This move was likely to generate employment opportunities in rural area and improve the economy of rural masses, particularly the weaker sections of society of study area.
