Growers, please be sure to practice the Suggested Good Agricultural Practices for Medicinal Herbs. We offered training on that in April 2015 and the videos are posted on our YouTube channel. The draft publication on the topic is listed on another tab in this blog. We understand that sometimes you want to work in confidence or need personal assistance. We still offer that service on a limited basis. Please contact Margaret at Margaret_Bloomquist@ncsu.edu. She will be happy to assist you.
