Authors: Lokesh, G.B
Issue Date: Feb-2004
Publisher: CSIR
Abstract: NATURAL PRODUCT RADIANCESweet flag, Acorus calamus Linn. (Hindi — Bach) is a popular medicinal plant used in several Ayurvedic formulations in India. Due to its growing medicinal use, it is being rapidly extracted from wild. At present, it is listed as endangered species. Taking cue from physical and economic scarcity farmers in Karnataka have planned for the cultivation of this annual crop in Tumkur district. This plant is available both under wild and under cultivated conditions. It has been estimated that 77 per cent of the sweet flag is cultivated with an area of 80ha and 23 per cent is gathered from the wild in India. About 70 per cent of total cultivated area is in Karnataka. The total production of sweet flag in the country is 5725qt/annum.
