The US Fish & Wildlife Service has pretty much twisted the arms of the individual states and told them if they want to continue to export wild (and wild simulated) ginseng they must comply with the regulations the USFWS \"requests\" ...which is September 1.

We were always August 20 start here in Vermont. It's now Sept 1, along with a 10 year old minimum on root. Short season for us now.

ah, August 20th,including last year....yeah a short season. Has it been dry up that way the last couple of months like here in western Pa ? It might be even a shorter season with plants in the dying process a bit more then they should be....

We had a dry spell a few weeks ago but have gotten good rain since. Our leaves start falling off trees much earlier than most other seng states, making it tough to spot seng. That's why I said short season. Hope you get some rains Western.

being that it's been bone dry here, i think there's no doubt going to effect harvest here.

Very dry across the border here in Ohio too. Most of the berries of the wild seng has turned red and/or dropped (and gotten planted by me) and a lot of them are turning yellow already. I'm not digging this year but still trying to protect the plants on my woods by planting berries and topping plants if all the berries have ripened, so as to hide from would-be poachers. Last year where I dug on a nearby farmer's woods, I was seeing seng with berries well into the first month of season and I didn't get started digging until a week into season. This year it looks like they will be gone or nearly all gone by the first of season.
