VCS

India is one of the richest countries in the world in terms of biodiversity and has 15 Agro- climatic zones. There are around 19,000 flowering plants and more than 8,000 species are having medicinal value. These are used in Indian system of medicine (Ayurveda, Unani, Siddha, and Homeopathy- AYUSH) as well in traditional medicine. More than 1,180 species are commercially traded and around 242 species have witnessed the trade of more than 100 MT per annum. Medicinal Plants collected in two streams (a) Cultivation – where some species have been cultivated on the commercial scale, in spite there are inadequate supply of genuine seeds/planting materials, standard operating procedures to follow cultivation, harvesting and post harvesting operations to improve the quality of produce, (b) Wild sources where more than 80% of the quantity and species are sourced from wild with lack of standards to be followed for collection, value addition, storage and transportation. With these draw backs in the medicinal plants sector, which has posed the issues of unsustainability in supply of quality materials to herbal industries. This calls for strengthening and mainstreaming the sector by promoting quality management system with proper documentation and record.
