1. 1.1 PREAMBLE Medicinal Plants form the major resource base of our indigenous health care

traditions. Outreach and acceptability of AYUSH systems both nationally as !ell as globally is dependent on uninterrupted a"ailability of #uality plant based ra! material. More than $%& of the species used in trade continue to be sourced from the !ild of !hich about '()rd are har"ested by destructi"e means. 1.' *ulti"ation of medicinal plants therefore is +ey to meeting the ra! material

needs of the AYUSH industry besides offering opportunities for higher le"els of income crop di"ersification and gro!th of e,ports. -ndian e,ports of medicinal plants and

herbs are mostly in the form of ra! herbs and e,tracts and account for almost .%/0%& of the current e,ports of herbal(AYUSH products. 1uring the year '%%2 3 %4 the

concerns of unsustainable collection from the !ild disappearance of certain species on the one hand and concerns of #uality and standardi6ation on the other ma+e it imperati"e to promote culti"ation of species critical to AYUSH systems of medicine through appropriate financial incenti"es policy infrastructural and mar+eting support in a synergistic manner.

NEED AND JUSTIFICATION 7ith more than $4& of the AYUSH products being plants based the ra!

material base needs to be shifted from forests to the culti"ated source for its long term sustainability.
