New Delhi: An MoU with considerable significance for the Medicinal Plants sector was signed today between the National Medicinal Plants Board (NMPB), Ministry of AYUSH and Herbal Industry bodies.
As a major objective of this MoU, the Herbal Industry bodies would be providing a buyback guarantee to the farmers/ tribals on medicinal plant cultivation and collection programmes supported by NMPB. This will help to conserve some rare medicinal plant species and to sustain the supply of quality raw material to AYUSH, Nutraceutical and Herbal industries.
