Planting Woods Grown "Glacial Gold" Ginseng Seeds By Hand And Commercially
by, Michael Hunter

FALL OF "95"


There are two ways of planting woods grown "Glacial Gold" ginseng. You can use a cultivator or rot tiller. If you are going for what they call woods cultivated ginseng, you need to rot till the first four to six inches of soil. This makes the ginseng plants much easier to harvest. But the ginseng roots grow straight and you wind up with ginseng roots that look like carrots. A good deal of the value of ginseng on the export market is by the appearance of the root. What the market is really looking for, other than very high ginsitis levels, is appearance. This is where the ginseng roots have split and formed what we call "figurines" in the business. Anything that looks like the lower anatomy of a human is a prime ginseng root.

There are two ways of planting woods grown "Glacial Gold" ginseng. You can use a cultivator or rot tiller. If you are going for what they call woods cultivated ginseng, you need to rot till the first four to six inches of soil. This makes the ginseng plants much easier to harvest. But the ginseng roots grow straight and you wind up with ginseng roots that look like carrots. A good deal of the value of ginseng on the export market is by the appearance of the root. What the market is really looking for, other than very high ginsitis levels, is appearance. This is where the ginseng roots have split and formed what we call "figurines" in the business. Anything that looks like the lower anatomy of a human is a prime ginseng root.
When you run across the extremely rare plant which they call the emperors root that is shaped like a human body, where the arms are pronounced, the legs are pronounced and the male sexual organ is pronounced, that is an emperor ginseng root. Those single individual ginseng roots can bring as much as $ 10,000 (US).

Wild simulated is the way I plant all of my ginseng plants.  Disking only the upper one inch of the soil leaves the substructure intact with all kinds of nice roots from existing trees, vegetation, etc. As these plants grow down, hopefully, they will hit a root which will cause a split and then you will have "figurines". The difference in the value between straight roots which sell for maybe $80 (US) to $90 (US) per pound for woods grown, (the Ginsenocide level is there for capsules, but the appearance isn't there), and wild simulated, where you can get both the appearance and the Ginsenocide levels, bring $300 (US) to $500 (US) per pound. It requires more effort at harvest. You have to be very careful. But one way you're digging up two dollar plants, (woods cultivated), and the other way, five dollar plants, (wild simulated).

One of the most important things is plan the delivery of your "Glacial Gold" ginseng seeds. The importance of taking your ginseng seeds directly from the stratifying pit, moving them right out to your plantation and getting them right back into the ground, can not be emphasized too much! The hulls on these ginseng seeds are sensitive. If they start drying out on you, your germination rate is going to go down.

Another thing to be concerned about in your "Glacial Gold" ginseng seeds is excessive washing. Some of the seed dealers seem to think washing helps and they put them into a cement mixer while they are decontaminating them and wash them real good. When I'm buying seeds, I look for two primary things:

1. I want to see a little sand on those seeds, then I know they're pretty fresh from the stratifying pit. I do my own decontamination prior to planting.

2. 1 look for what they call grinning. When these seeds are fresh out of the stratifying pit, they should not be starting to crack for your fall planting.

There are numerous ginseng dealers out there who have ginseng seeds for sale. If they cannot deliver the top quality product you are paying for, look for another dealer. Go after these hybrid or dual strain, any of these reputable dealers will bend over backwards to help you. When you get your ginseng seeds, get them into the ground, don't let them dry out.. Have your sites prepared.

If you are working with about 50 lbs. of ginseng seed, lay it out in about five rows, about 90' long and about 6' wide. Get over on the northeast, east, or southeast side of your woods. Look at your ground vegetation. If there is nothing growing there, you haven't got enough light. If there is too much vegetation, there is too much light for your ginseng. Ginseng likes that morning sun, especially when you're working with seedlings or seed beds. The ginseng will be up before the other vegetation is up. It will be up before those leaves start to fill out. It needs that early morning sun. Experience has taught me that one.
At any rate, once you've got your rows laid out, rake back your leaves, leave areas in between your rows down through the woods. Run a rot tiller along the edge of the rows, this helps promote good draining and it loosens up the dirt. If you can find a hand planter, this is great, or disk only the upper one inch of the soil leaving the substructure intact, as I do, and plant with a commercial planter. In the ginseng trade, they look at how many pounds of root they expect to get back from how many pounds of seed they plant. A good ratio in field cultivated is about 3 1/2 to 1. One pound of seed should yield about 3 1/2 pounds of root. If you do that well out in the woods and you start moving at around $500 (US) per pound, then the seeds aren't quite so expensive.

Any rate, hand plant or broadcast them by hand. If you are going to broadcast by hand break them up in sections. Spread your seeds out evenly into different containers so that you've got an idea of the area you've got to cover.

Now, after you've planted your seeds, take some topsoil out of your trenches and put about a three-fourths inch covering over the whole bed, uniformly. Rake your leaves back across, your leaves are your mulch. Do not rake those leaves off the bed or back onto the bed if they are wet. They will mat, if they mat that ginseng cannot get up through it in the spring. It might not be a bad idea about the 15th of April through the 1st of May, when the plants are starting to come up, to loosen those leaves with a rake. Make sure they're loose, especially if you're working in an oak forest where the leaves are big. Get involved with your plants.

Now, try to run your rows north and south wherever possible, but try to follow the contours of your land. Ginseng like its moisture, but it does not like to stand in low areas, or "get its feet wet" as they say in the trade.

About using straw as mulch, I have had some disastrous results using straw as mulch. I've heard of other growers who have had the same problem. There is something about the fungus that is in the straw, or what they're using on the wheat, I do not recommend using straw for mulch. If you can't get a hold of any leaves, go rake some old peoples' yards for free, go out in the park and help clean up the park's leaves.   Drainage ditches are used as harvest paths. Make sure you can access them.

Planting can be done with seeds or roots in the fall. (If they are dual strain roots, you could be in the hybrid seed business by next fall.) September and October are the best months to plant. Three and four year old roots may be used for seed production. Initially, roots cost more, but as they get older, the ginsitis level gets higher and they become more valuable.

Ginseng needs good air flow especially towards the hotter parts of the days and the evenings. You can get it on the slope of a hill. That hot air will rise in the evenings and will cool your plants.

If you prefer to plant seeds, they must be stratified first. This stratification is necessary because ginseng has an eighteen month gestation period. When you pick the berries in the fall, you store them in a stratifying pit through the winter and then you plant them the next fall. They will come up that following spring. Either purchase stratified seeds or stratify them yourself. Just prior to planting you want to decontaminate the seeds.

I use Captain's water. I put the seeds into a tub that contains Captain's water and I like to place a little bit of my Manzate2OO DF in there. Fungi can be fun for ginseng growers! Then after you have decontaminated the seeds, get to your planting.

Roots are transplanted after two to four years. It's not recommended at one year. They don't seem to survive the transplant shock as well as they do at two years. At two years they are old enough to be used for houseplants, to be put into pots. I prefer the third year, because they will begin to have the flowers. Once you put them into a pot, they have a tendency never to get any bigger than when you planted them into the pot. If you wait till the third year, you will get flowers and seeds off them.

Planting roots is much the same as planting seeds. Soak the roots for fifteen minutes prior to planting in a solution of two tablespoons of Captain's water per gallon of water. Do not rinse after soaking. If you cannot get Captain's water, you can use bleach.

My personal experience has taught me that ginseng likes close husbandry, especially when you work with your initial seedling beds. The closer you plant these plants together, the better germination factor you get. Plant these things a little tight.

The rows for roots should be planted five inches apart in all directions. Roots are planted about three-fourths to one inch below the surface. Be careful not to plant them too deep. Place the root in the row with the bud up. Be careful not to damage the bud as this is the growing point. Keep the tops from growing into each other and competing for nutrition and moisture. As with seeds, keep them moist, they dry quickly. Roots also need to be mulched after planting.

Planting Woods Grown "Glacial Gold" Ginseng Seeds Commercially
by Michael Hunter


"Fall of 97"
The first thing that you are going to look at as a businessman is what kind of a return can I expect out of my money? If a pound of "Glacial Gold" ginseng seeds cost me $89.95 (US) and I can expect 35 pounds of ginseng roots back at the end of seven years. Well in today's market, that would be about $6,300 (US). Now if you're doing this on a reasonable scale, you could get some pretty serious money involved. Now when they are commercially growing ginseng seeds, they are planting it any where from 110 lbs. to 125 lbs. per acre. Well, their yield back isn't all that good, but they look at it from the point that they don't have to pay for their seeds. They're going to replant the same seeds, then they wonder why the product that they're growing only brings eighteen dollars per pound.
The sensible way to do this, depending on the acreage you have to work with, is start with fifty pounds of dual strain "Glacial Gold" ginseng seed and grow your own ginseng seeds. If you buy rootlets, you'll be producing your own ginseng seeds next year. These are business type decisions that the individuals have to make for their own selves. Work with your consultants, look at what you are trying to achieve here. The equipment that I am using for planting this, which I will try and show you over the next few pages, isn't really big expensive equipment. I use that little 1952 Ford tractor of mine, I paid $2,500 (US) for it. I paid $450 (US) for the disk that is behind it. That's an extremely efficient way to make beds. Now the seeder, that got expensive, that cost $1,700 (US). But you get a real nice, uniform distribution of your seed with it. This season I'm going to put the seeder right up on top of the disk. I think that I will get a better seed bed, that disk rides pretty high and pretty light. Then I could actually be disking and planting at the same time, and the seeder doubles up as a fertilizer. You can regulate the flow to it to accommodate literally any size seeds or any size of dry type material.

At any rate, lay your woods out, figure your light, keep your southwest corner real well shaded. These plants don't like to get real warm in the afternoons. Once you've got your beds in, and laid out, about two weeks prior to planting, you want to treat your rows with Round Up and literally kill back the vegetation in there. At the same time, you want to treat for slugs. We had an El Nino last year and this caused a slug manifestation that just was totally unrealistic. The slugs work just below the surface. They can be handled with numerous pesticide controls. If you don't want to go that route with them, you can actually trap them out through the course of your planting season, if you take and put some squares of aluminum or a lightweight sheet metal, anything along those lines. Lay it down on the surface of the beds, and the slugs will be drawn to the metal and adhere themselves to the bottom of it. You can just walk through your beds and pick up your pieces of metal, scrape the slugs off into a bucket, but if you don't handle those slugs, they will eat your crops up, believe me, I had them eat up a 500 lb.  bed on me last season. That was expensive.

Anyway, growing ginseng is kind of like playing high stakes poker. You always seem to come up with one of two things; a busted flush or a royal flush. Ginseng seems to be the same way, you have to make it big or you don't make it at all. It takes some nerve. It's going to take a lot of effort on our grower's part to bring our crop number 70 up to where we're growing it on a compatible level with corn. Now all of the" Glacial Gold" ginseng seeds that my company is selling, we keep track of everything. Even the soil that it came out of, to have an idea what the pH level was.

I don't believe that some of the farmers have checked their soil in their woods in eighty or ninety years. If they have checked it, "why if it's that way one place on our 500 acre farm, I guess it's the same on the rest". You can buy soil testing kits at your local farm supply store. Do your research, read some good books, and what-have-you.

The balancing of the light is very important. Ginseng has to have at least 4 hours of direct, slightly oscillating light, and as the days get longer, it needs more shade. Some of the things that you can look at as you're utilizing more and more of your acreage, as you get over towards the west or southwest side, put some artificial shade up, if needed. If you have some areas in the woods that need shade, just erect some posts, take some baling twine and tie some cross members. Then lay some brush up over these more open areas. An abundance of material is available right there in your woods that can be used for this type of thing. Your forestry consultants will show you the type of thinning that should be being done in your woods. Proper thinning needs to be done to produce a really good crop of timber and ginseng.

"SPRING PLANTING TIP'S"

Plant early, especially the further North you are.  This gives the seeds a chance to become climatically adapted to the environment that they are being planted in.  This also gives the seeds a chance to be absorbing the nutrients from the soil that they are going to be raised in.  When purchasing your seeds, be especially wary of seeds with dried out hulls.  The embryos may be alive, but your germination factor will be greatly reduced.   Naturally all of our seeds are float tested and decontaminated before shipment.  Quality must be number one.  Our future markets are going to demand it. 
Suggested commercial woods planting is about 40 Pounds to the Acre.  You should be realizing about 10 pounds of seed back for each pound planted in 4 years and about 10 pounds of roots for each pound of seed planted in 7 years.  If you take care of your plants you might do twice that.
We guarantee no dried out hulls.  The hull is what the embryo feeds on as it develops
