Forest cultivated ginseng, Panax ginseng C. A. Meyer, is an important pharmaceutical plant in North Eastern Asia. The Korean peninsula is the best place to grow ginseng because the plant has stringent requirements for growth, such as high precipitation during the summer and an appropriately low minimum winter temperature. Advantageously, forest cultivated ginseng requires little maintenance. Naturally shaded, well drained soil helps ginseng grow in forest habitats. It has been shown that net photosynthetic rates of forest ginseng plants grown in mountain forests are reduced as the plant ages. © 2011 Academic Journals.

Panax ginseng C. A. Meyer is an important pharmaceutical plant in North Eastern Asia. Five mountain forests, namely: Hongcheon, Sangju, Jinan, Poonggi and Andong were selected to compare net photosynthesis of P. ginseng in Korea. The net photosynthesis of 5 years old ginseng showed the highest values in all the forest areas. Obviously, net photosynthetic rates of forest ginseng grown in every five mountain forests decrease when the forest ginseng becomes old. © 2011 Academic Journals.

The objective of this study was to collect basic data for medicinal ingredients such as ginsenosides (Re and Rb1) contents grown in forests in Korea. To achieve this purpose, 10 forest stands have been selected in various mountain areas. Agricultural cultivated ginseng was used to compare with ginsenosides of forest ginseng. Rb 1 and Re contents of forest ginseng grown in 10 forests were higher than agricultural cultivated ginseng. Regionally, Rb1, and Re contents of the Panax ginseng grown in Jeongsun, Sangju and Namyangju were generally higher than those of 10 other forests in Korea. © 2010 Copyright Taylor and Francis Group, LLC.
