Is anyone still finding seng? Is it gone for the year?
The drought here in KY has made it dry up faster.

I'd say it's pretty well over for the year as far as digging. Dealers should start buying again in a couple of weeks at around $320 a lb.

Every one should just hold on to their ginseng so the prices will go up like I already read. They are only offering $300 a pound here in central Illinois.

To the sellers of ginseng, why are you selling at these low prices? You are the ones keeping the prices low. I know some needs the money. I'm poor too, but i'm not selling at these cheap prices. Pumpkins are selling at 7 dollars a peice, green beans $65 a bushel. Go to the grocery stores, everythings high. Whats wrong with Ginseng prices. You cant say China. Theres a market here in the USA for ginseng. They are putting it in everything even Coke and Pepsi. We diggers are getting ripped off.
We walk the hills through chiggers, snakes, ticks, itch weed. And some guy in the big suit behind a desk making thousands off YOUR Ginseng. I know theres a lot of diggers this year. But where are they finding all of that ginseng. It's real scarce where I live.
It was $500 a pound 6 years ago before everything went up. The buyers better buy it now. Next year there wont be much ginseng or diggers!
Grow you a pot plant behind the house. You will get as much as 5 pounds of ginseng. No sweat, no trouble selling. And always HIGH PRICES!

Once it is dry put it in a box and plastic bag then put it in the freezer it will keep indefinitely like that.

I think it is crazy to hunt the way we have to hunt for ginseng and not be able to get a fair price from it.I have hunted it all my life and i love it but i think this will be the last year i look for it...

Ossining, NY

yeh its a bunch of bs. over 1000 a lb last year, now this year they arent even wanting to buy it. my dude dropped his green price to 70 lb. that isnt even worth looking for it rly u can make more money off yellowroot. i spent 5 hours searching for ginseng and made 17 bux. spent 2.5 hours digging yellow root made 33. something not right there

Barbourville, KY

#125 Oct 13, 2008
well I have decided if i cant get at least 450lb for it i will keep it from now on. it dont cost me a penny to keep it where it is..
