The centre, which was built in a 2.5ha valley with a total investment of 300,000 USD, is expected to supply 50,000 saplings and seeds of Ngoc Linh ginseng and herbs for local farmers in seven villages in the district this year. The centre is an initial step toward Tra My's ginseng development project on 15,000ha in seven mountainous communes.
Seven businesses had started feasibility studies on growing 1,000ha of Ngoc Linh Ginseng and processing plants in the district, where more than 42,000ha of primary forests have been well preserved in development of the ginseng and native herbs.

Vietnamese ginseng was one of eight precious and endangered flora genes including Ba Kich (poor man’s ginseng or codonopsis), pepper, cinnamon, large-size rattan and white corn in Quang Nam province’s conservation program.
