Re:Kentucky prices dry 10/13/14 2 years 10 months ago #33386

my latest info is that the market has lots of small inmature stick root left over from last year so this year there only wanting to buy larger mountain root to try and bring up the quality of the lot so if you have larger ginseng with no small root you stand a better chance of getting a decent price if you have lots of little inmature root sorry about your luck but then you shoulnt of dug it to begain with. prices not off much for the best quality root from last year in the right place but other wise i dont know

Leebros!
You're exactly right. Why people dig small immature roots is just crazy.
If only people would just dig mature roots,plant the berries back there would always be nice seng to dig.
I think it's an IQ thing.

I know I'm in PA and not Kentucky, but I'll throw my .02 cents in. I called a dealer approx 100 miles away from me, and he said he'd only give $400 right now, and then he recommended that I wait another 3-4 weeks. He all but guaranteed he'd be paying better prices in another month. (although he didn't say what that price would be)

I actually had a such a bad year that I don't have any to sell anyways, I was just calling around to see what people are paying. I'm hoping to do better next year. This year I only dug 10 roots, and ended up just replanting them back a little closer to home to dig up another year.
