PROJECT LEADER(S): SCP Management Team: Jeanine Davis, Bill Jester, and Nick Augostini
This project is being done in cooperation with several other projects, most notably those of the UNC Consortium on Natural Medicinal Products, Yellow Creek Botanical Institute, and David Danehower's program in Crop Science at NCSU. Projects are underway to examine commercial production strategies for bloodroot, black cohosh, and goldenseal and the influence of mulches on eight sun-loving medicinal herbs. All of these are multiple year studies that will not yield results until beginning in 2003. Interest in these herbs is very high. Visits to the research plots at field days at the Reidsville, Fletcher, and Kinston stations was very high.
