2013 Season has begun, there is supposed to be a 50% increase in Ginseng prices this year, due to supply and demand. Dose anyone know the best time to sell to get the maximum profit?

highest here in wv is 550 pound dry. 2012 season finished out on average 600 pound. Hold that ginseng for now. Market for wild is good this year starting out at 550 and it is going to go up. Here in wv fall is coming early this year. I am finding that alot of the quality plants have hit the ground or gone. Demand for wild is way higher than the supply. Hold onto that ginseng for higher prices

Sang who you think you are coming on here if you really do live in WV which I doubt it. Either way you are an amateur sounds to me. It may go to 900 a lb who knows may fall down to 200. Dimwits with dumbshit do as I say people like yourself is whats wrong with the market today. You probably sell picked at a high green market don't you? People if you are selling 5 big roots for 14 an ounce the rest at 7 you lost your ass verses selling it all for 9 straight. Question for some of you know it alls, what are the Koreans buying up all this green for? Some smart people are selling our only extra way to make a dollar for a negative . Invest in a calculator if you don't have enough common sense to figure it out. I spend too many hard hours in the woods to give my ginseng away to a smooth slickass crooked buyer who takes advantage of us cause we live in ky.

I found a Ginseng root up in the hills the third time I ever hunted. I kept digging and digging and finally got to the bottom. I counted ninety seven nodes on it. It's almost two feet long. What would a root like this be worth?

You are not so post to dig it when its in bloom no ways that why it is so hard to find in a lot of area's Ginseng is used in a lot of the med. we use. Ad the next thing do you have premission from the landowner to be dig on the property for it. or any other Roots.

I've never been ginseng digging before. Looked into it about 5 years ago cause I thought I saw some while scouting for the upcoming hunting season. My family has about 150 acres which is mostly old woods with a good canopy. My question to this forum (since most of you obviously know a lot more than me) is if only having 150 acres of woods to search in is even worth my time? Thanks to all who respond.

I was offered $900/lb for dry in Southeast TN. Too bad I'm an amateur and don't know where to dig it. Thinking about educating myself to be a responsible digger like my granpa. Be good to the land and it'll be good back! It all boils down to respect.

If I had 150 acres I'd search it high and low for ginseng as long as its the proper landscape for it to grow. Who don't like being in the woods anyway? Lol

Yes you can, but it's not worth much. The "home grown" ginseng is the stuff you see in soft drinks (pepsi max) or other types of teas and energy drinks. They grown it on big farms in Wisconsin and sell it buy the ton. The "wild" gensing is sold to the Asian market. They think it helps them with every type of health problem known to man.
---- so if you were to grow ginseng hydroponically (if even possible) what would it be worth? And how do buyers tell the difference? Tnx :))
