Rule Details

Rule Number: 14P019
Title: Vermont Regulations for the Collection, Cultivation and Sale of American Ginseng.
Type: Standard
Status: Adopted
Agency: Agency of Agriculture, Food and Markets
Legal Authority: 6 V.S.A. ยงยง 4029 and 4031
Summary: This is an amendment to an existing rule. The amendments propose to modify the collection season and the minimum age for certification of wild ginseng in Vermont. The amendment also incorporates the statutory fee structure and addresses minor housekeeping issues such as updating terms and section numbering. Simultaneously, reference to ginseng is being removed from the Nursery Inspection and Certification Rule by separate rule-making.
Persons Affected: This rule affects persons who collect and deal in wild ginseng in Vermont, the Agency of Agriculture, Food and Markets, and persons located outside Vermont seeking to trade in Vermont-grown ginseng.
Economic Impact: The overall economic impact of the rule amendments are neutral because fees are set in statute and the change in collection season dates which may limit harvest in the short term will ensure sustainability of wild ginseng over the long haul.
