If you are in KY, you can call the department of argiculture. I would think you would just need a dealers license. This will not cost you a dime.

VA , U dont need a license, just permission from landowner if U arent the landowner. I dont trust the fact that someone from state office wanted me to have someone \"inspect\" my patch where the wild plants grow. I am letting them sit for another year or two, since there is so much poaching in VA and I am not
trusting anyone in any office from giving out my info.

Here in MN you don't need a license to grow or sell ginseng as long as you sell it in the state of MN. If you intend to sell it out of state it needs to be certified by a conservation officer and a license has to be purchased at a cost of $5.00 per year.
