Kerala Ayurveda Limited cultivates rare herbs through Organic Farming for the manufacture of medicines at its Herbal Farm spread over 42 acres at Thali, in Tamil Nadu. Herbs for our various medicinal compositions are sourced from our very own Herbal Farm. We have over 5000 Contract Farmers engaged in the cultivation process, and Highest Standards and Protocols are followed to ensure the Efficacy, Safety and Purity of our Herbs. Several rare and endangered species form a major part of our Herbal collections.
The R&D Division of KAL has a prestigious Herbal Garden, which is actually a gene-pool with more than 1200 species of rare and endangered medicinal plants, collected by conducting extensive surveys. These efforts also include certain hitherto unexplored tribal pockets, which are treasure troves of Herbal wealth.
Herbal Garden and a Herbarium of these collected plants serve as a center of excellence to Ayurveda Doctors, Students and Research Scholars of various faculties and provide awareness to the public about our rich Herbal heritage. The nursery attached to the Herbal Garden is a nodal agency, engaged in the propagation and dissemination of quality planting materials to farmers with a buy-back arrangement, to inculcate the habit of medicinal farming among them.
Plant introduction, acclimatization and commercial cultivation of selected varieties are targeted to have better quality raw materials for our products with increased biomass and active ingredients. Researches on these lines are an ongoing process and have standardized agro-technology for 20 High-value medicinal crops. Biochemical evaluation of these cultivated species helps in fixing the optimum period of harvest and in evolving complete quality protocols.
