History  
Harvest
  • Root: Root of first year plant is harvested in fall or early spring
    • Wash root in agitator or tumble washer, If the soil has lots of clay don't change the water
    • Dry roots partially then chip, We have used an impact chipper for this with good results. The semidry roots don't powder as easily this reduces loss through dust and increases the operator safety. The rootchips are then dried the rest of the way.
  • Leaf :
    • Harvest First or second year leaves and dry Cut leaves for storage
  • Seed:
    • Harvest seed in fall of second year
