Abstract: Most of the herbal raw material used in production of herbal medicines is procured from wild sources. Such chemically inconsistent material causes considerable problems in achieving quality herbal products. A systematic cultivation can help not only in getting expected quality herbs but it also has an impact on health care system, national economy and conservation status of biodiversity. Herbal raw material producers and herbal product manufactures always underestimate medicinal plant cultivation technologies. This ultimately leads to difficulties in developing ute products of desired quality. In this paper, need for application of'quality assurance approach ' in herbal product standardization at  agro¬∑climatic and processing level has been discussed.
