National scenario
z Indian Market of the order of Rs7000 Cr.
z 70% of export in raw drugs and raw herbs.
z Western ghats is one of the 12 Biodiversity hotspots of the World – endowed with good environmental factors for growth of var of med plants z Rich Agriculture Base with surplus capacity and considerable scope for inter and intra cultivation and lot of cultivable waste land and fallow lands. z Karnataka Forest Dept is a well spread out organisation with disciplined and technically trained personnel.
z Biotechnology is growing in Karnataka very fast in recent years registering 30% growth in certain areas. z JFPM institutions offer cooperative synergy for extension, nursery, economy of scale etc. Weaknesses
z It is in a very primary stage: No/Low Policy, Strategy, Law, Regulations, Infrastructure, Financial investment for Medicinal Plants z Economy of scale is unfavourable for most medicinal z Low ‘quality consciousness’ in cultivation, process, preservation, production resulting in contamination, deterioration, adulteration, substitution having impact on low export and local market share. Opportunities
z Cultivation of medicinal plants can fetch additional income, quality employment, scope for growth of rural economy, optimum utilisation of agriculture infrastructure. z Overall economic growth esp. covering rural Strategy: Threats
z Fear, Ignorance, Dogma, inertia for change. z Risks of failure and dramatic price fall.
z Monopoly Industries may thwart competetion Direction
z Incorporation of Medicinal plants in forest pol.
z Law to restrict & regulate raw materials utilisation from z Conservation measures similar to wild life protectionz Cites like agreement between Statesz Nationalised trade of endangered species.
