Why don't all the dealers that visit this site want to go ahead and post their prices while they are on here visiting ?
Looks like there are several dealers visiting.
Maybe there would be alittle competive pricing.....:woohoo:

From what I have seen and heard no one knows what the market is going to do. Its a business and no dealer wants to get stuck with root they can't turn a profit on. If someone would offer me $800LB I would sell out now B)

I have done some calling here in east TN, I have been told anywhere from 380 to 415 this week. I'm with you, someone wants to give me 800 for mine I'll even drive to meet them.

Also from what I am hearing from my dealers is there is about 45% left over from last season, and the China markets is wantting to comit on a price yet. I say give it another week or two and we will start see the prices going up. This is the fun part about being a digger but also the stressful part as well. Watching the prices.

well there you go ,you can hear just about anything..4 weeks ago my china man from Chicago told me there was little to no hold over in any of the Asian markets from last year..he also told me that the reason that china had not committed was they were still inventorying orders that were still coming in .he said in other words they were waiting to see what kinda harvest season North America was going to have.[supply]....now Big R i'm not saying your mans wrong and my guy's right..time will tell on those points.;) what I'm saying is what a discrepancy dealers ,exporters ,and the Asians can give..is it more BS and mind games ,probably ...see \"us as diggers \" we are the lowest rung on the food chain..so we get the least amount of imfo..;)

my 2 cents.....until the green(wet) seng is over and the chinese come into the market the price is set primarily out of pure speculation every year.....seems like this year dealers are sure scared to make a move....Not all dealers but MOST dealers are NOT trying to get the digger the best price, they are trying to buy it as cheap as they think they can and make the best profit. I know the price we get is for average wild ginseng and it is cherry picked from there, and the price and profit goes up up and up for the dealer as he or she seperates and grades it.

Ultimately it is a business but as a digger it seems like there ought to be a live market we could watch online (kinda like gold,silver....etc). This would give everybody a good baseline or idea whats going on.
