MEDICINAL

PLANT FPO MEET

(GAF-FPO)

 

DEC 5, 2023 | TIME: 9.30AM – 4PM

One of the most critical constituent of Ayurveda as a medical system is the availability and quality of medicinal plants as raw materials. There are around 900 species of medicinal plants that are used by the AYUSH industry and around 300 of them come under the category of RET (Rare, Endangered and Threatened). Another issue that plagues the industry is the raw drug sourcing that is largely unorganised.

GAF therefore felt the need to have an exclusive meet to interact with Medicinal Plant farmers and Farmer Producer Organisations (FPOs) with the intention of discussing issues pertaining to cultivation, harvesting and procurement of this natural resource while addressing issues related to the livelihood of the people involved.

Kerala has been at the forefront of ayurvedic revolution in the country ,endowed with rich biodiversity because of its natural topography comprising of all three biomass -hills, plateaus and coasts. One of the most critical problems faced by Ayurveda as a medical system is the lack of availability of genuine & quality raw medicinal plants .Another issue that plagues the industry is the raw drug sourcing that is largely unorganised. GAF therefore felt the need to have an exclusive meet to interact with Medicinal Plant farmers and Farmer Producer Organisations (FPOs) with the intention of discussing issues pertaining to Cultivation, Harvesting , Procurement, Value addition and Marketing of this natural resource while addressing issues related to the livelihood of the people involved.
