Latt stated, Take away the outlet to sell illegally dug seng and it will slow things down.
The problem is everyone and there brother are digging seng out of season and holding until legal season or selling to rogue buyers. They will even barter with seng to knives, guns to hunting dogs. I see no other way but green sells only,Period.
Well I honestly hope some of the diggers that sell to you are on this board as they now need to spread the word that you as a buyer on calling for the government to force them to sell ginseng in green form only leading to them receiving only 25-50% of the ginsengs value and then I certainly hope the word spreads from 1 to another so that you no longer have anyone to buy from. I've pointed out repeatedly the problem with green only sales and you said you understood and your right back to calling for it again. You are a one Slick SAVY buyer
in my opinion and KNOW this will result in significantly more profits for you doing this, less risk, and no down side to you the buyer while still knowing it will hurt the diggers profit in every way with no benefit to them.
If your going to force us to sell green REALLY heap the regulations & greater oversight on the buyers and force them to all sell only green also with export of root required within 2 weeks of being bought. That should easily end your buying season by mid-October or so and have all ginseng out of the country by early November.
That should make us all happy right???
