NMBP ASSURED FOR SIKKIMESE HERB


NMBP ASSURED FOR SIKKIMESE HERB
Gangtok, May 25: Sikkim medicinal herbs sector is improving with farmers showing encouraging results and assurances coming from the National Medicinal Plant Board (NMPB) for infrastructural and marketing support.
In Sikkim nearly 424 species of medicinal plants grow in Sikkim, mostly in the wild, 70 per cent of which are found in the State's high altitude regions above 8,000 feet. The National Medicinal Plants Board has identified around 35 species as having commercial value and will support new schemes for the medicinal plant growers in the state.
''NMBP have agreed in principle of state government proposals for providing systematic botanical survey, documentation of herbal outlets and other schemes to revitalise and popularise the traditional systems of Sikkim Himalayas, including establishment of warehousing facilities in different centres and market infrastructural development.
Total 84 farmers in the state have been supported by NMBP to cultivate medicinal plants like Chiraito, Gloriosa Supreba (Langarey Tarul) and Asparagus (Kurilo) and other marketable herbs.

When i started my blog on Sikkim way back in 2007, i had it clear on my mind that this blog shall help people look out for knowledge on Sikkim. I always wanted a knowledge house about Sikkim, its past, present and future. I do not know over the years how much did i succeed but my determination to let other understand my Sikkim is always giving me a push. with regards Shital Pradhan (himalayanreview@gmail.com)
