Introduction

Native U.S. ginseng (and related species), goldenseal, and other medicinal roots are exported or used domestically in products regulated by the 1994 Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act. Most such crops are raised under contract by experienced growers. Some roots are organically raised. Since 2002 U.S. federal law has reserved the commercial term 'ginseng'; for Panax species. This publication discusses production and marketing of ginseng and panax relatives, goldenseal, blue and black cohosh.
