While there aren’t any restrictions for growers in PA at this time, the DCNR with the help of Penn State University and growers around the state are considering putting in place a growers program designed to help with the certification process for shipment out of state as well as collecting better numbers on how much seng being shipped is true wild or wild simulated. Some in the state figure if you are a grower, put, plant, sow or however you get ginseng seed put into the ground, the root becomes wild simulated or as the DCNR calls, artificially propagated.
As I get more info, I’ll update the readers.
Diggers, sometimes it is hard to do. However, you are supposed to get permission from landowners before you look for seng. Without it, not only are you trespassing, you might be digging someone else’s crop and what does that make you?
