Introduction: The journey of Medicinal plants and their
derivatives are thus look upon not only as a source of affordable healthcare
but also as an important commodity item of international trade and commerce.
World need eco-friendly system for sustainable to need develop agriculture
technique, which is need of present era. It is very important that a system of standardization
is established for every medicinal plant in market because the scope for variation
in different batches of medicine is enormous. Guidelines for Good Agricultural
Practices of medicinal plants traded and use in production of raw material that
goes in to the making of the ASU medicines and standardize the production
processes from farm to factory.
Aim: Identify and highlights all
such problems and issues from source raw material to finished product available
Objective: To identify various methods and
techniques for cultivation of medicinal plants.
find out techniques for standardization of raw material to finished product
available in market.
collected from reference books, journals, practical experience and knowledge
from Agricultural expert, botanist, farmer etc. Systematic arrangement based on
applicability with view of marketing of medicinal plants.
Result: Physico-chemical analysis and nutrient profile
should be obtained to decide the nature and quantity of soil amendments
required usual quality for crop management. For standardization of raw drug management
for cultivation like raw material, source identification, proper storage
condition, manufacturing, processed material, packaging and storage, finished
product and marketing these methods are used.
Conclusion: A well-drained fertile soil with
optimum level of water holding capacity and productivity status should be used
for medicinal plants cultivation. By using these techniques we can overcome
challenges to improving good agricultural practices and yield the crop of
medicinal plants in large quantity to enhance the potency of raw drugs.
