Cultivation of Tibetan medicinal material helps poverty alleviation

The Red Sun Family Technological Experimental Farm in Mainling County, southwest China's Tibet was established in 2015. It is a farm that focuses on cultivating Tibetan medicinal materials and the sale of medicinal herbs. The farm currently has a 560-square-meter strain culture room, two boilers, 29 greenhouses, and two technicians.

Nyima is the head of the farm. Talking about the original intention of building the farm, he said: "The high-altitude medicinal materials are decreasing year after year, and there has been a shortage of materials. Without protection and breeding, the development of Tibetan medicine will be limited. Market for Tibetan medicine faces a broad prospect and, developing medicinal materials is a good way to not only protect traditional culture, but also increase people's incomes."

In order to expand the scale and variety of Tibetan medicinal materials and obtain more economic benefits, Nyima is also active in agriculture practical technical trainings. Through continuous learning, the farm is now experienced in cultivating and planting medicinal materials such as gastrodia elata, ganoderma mushrooms, and maca. The herbs and seedlings of gastrodia elata, maca, Paris polyphylla, and others can bring millions of yuan in income to the farm each year.
