Hey Chieftain, I too would be interested in knowing more about your method.

But, I want to caution you, on the odd chance you don't already know, there are legal requirements for holding ginseng over from one year to the next. Here is the Illinois statute:

Illinois Compiled Statute (525 ILCS 20/2e) (from Ch. 61, par. 512)

Sec. 2e. Certification. The Department must certify the origin and quantity of all ginseng harvested in the State of Illinois. Certifications will only be made within the boundaries of the State and only at the established offices of resident licensed dealers, registered licensed growers or at offices designated by the Department. The Department shall establish by administrative rule procedures for certification to authenticate and verify the origin, legal taking or purchasing, weight of shipment, whether wild or cultivated and persons growing or dealing in ginseng and other information as required to attain compliance with Federal mandates of the Office of Scientific Authority of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora. All wild ginseng must be certified and sealed by April 1 of the year following harvest. (Source: P.A. 83680.)

I bury my fresh roots in the garden until i am ready to sell, i figure they lose about an ounce or 2 per 3 pounds. I have 6 p's in the ground now, sure i'll lose a quarter p but i will leave them there until i hear the asia buyer is in town around thanksgiving~ then I will dig em up and have fresh roots to sell. they usually bring a premium that time of year which makes up for the lost weight B) I never hold roots from year to year, not fresh or dry after all it isn't gold so no need to hoard it. The way i look at it if you have roots that were dug 2,3,4 years ago you are losing money waiting for a target price that may never come, you also risk theft, damage, and/or buyer rejection.
