Development of innovative technologies for cultivation and food production of ginseng (Panax sp.) and Chinese horseradish (Angelica sinensis), No.17-00-A01620-000008
is a rapidly increasing demand for natural herbs that could substitute
chemical-based medicinal, cosmetic, and food products. In Europe and
other parts of the world, one of the most wanted herbs are ginseng
(Panax sp.) and Chinese horseradish (Angelica sinensis). Agronomy
experts point out that the weather and soil in Latvia is well-suited for
cultivation of medicinal and aromatic plants. During the project, in
cooperation with scientists, agronomists and entrepreneurs, the project
team will research the most suitable technologies and methods for
cultivation of above mentioned herbs within organic farming environment.
They will also develop innovative experiments for research of
cultivation of ginseng in forest ecosystems.
Create and support cooperation between agriculture, agricultural product processing industry and science, in order to:
1. Develop innovative methods for cultivation of globally demanded medicinal plants (ginseng (Panax sp.) and Chinese horseradish (Angelica sinensis)) that are suitable for Latvia’s agro-climatic conditions;
2. Create new products based on ginseng (Panax sp.) and Chinese horseradish (Angelica sinensis);
Disseminate knowledge gathered during the project via European
Innovation Partnership network and other communication channels.
1. Elaboration of cultivation technology for ginseng and Chinese horseradish within organic farming environment, development of experimental methodology, cultivation experiments, economical evaluation;
2. Development of prototypes for new tea blends including ginseng and Chinese horseradish; experience exchange; testing of characteristics of various tea blends; creating of prototypes;
3. Raising public awareness and dissemination of project results.
