First post here. I own a wood lot in a historic ginseng region that I believe is worth trying wild simulated ginseng. I read the Persons/Davis book and the lot meets the requirements as optimum (5100 lbs calcium/acre!, north facing slope, companion plants, shade levels, etc., etc.) for growing conditions. I'm going to try test plots and expand from there if things are positive. No high hopes for anything...just an interesting project idea at this point.
My question centers on the business aspects of this experiment. I look at purchasing seed, gas spent driving to and from my property etc, as possible business expenses for a farming production per the IRS guidance publication 225. I want to take advantage of all government resources available even for the experimental steps of wild simulated farming. Does anyone any guidance/advice on how to proceed with wild simulated \"farming\" as a business?
