(QNO) - Ngoc Linh ginseng is now in the season of budding after hibernation but the inclement weather makes ginseng growers on the Ngoc Linh mountain busy.
Ngoc Linh ginseng reaches the new age between March and April. It is the time when the ginseng trees wake up after 4 months of hibernation. It is also the time in which Ngoc Linh ginseng trees are easy to be attacked by pestilences and insects.
Besides, the weather is not good this year when unseasonal rain appears frequently. So, ginseng planters are rather busy. Ngoc Linh ginseng helps improve ginseng planters’ income and employees’.
As Ngoc Linh ginseng is planted under the canopy of the jungle, it is difficult to forecast if it is raining until water drips down.
Rain helps the forest grow well, which results in the development of the ginseng trees. Moreover, rain stimulates the germination of ginseng seeds.
However, heavy rain may cause waterlogged beds and damage ginseng trees such as rotting roots, broken trunks, or losing flowers.
At this time, ginseng trees are growing well, which is expected to have a bumper crop. So, ginseng planters have to protect their ginseng gardens carefully.
They hope to send the most valuable ginsengs to the next Ngoc Linh ginseng festival and provide ideal destinations for visitors, contributing to the local tourism development.
