Georgia Ginseng Management Program

Program History

In 2013 there was a change in Georgia law requiring that the ginseng harvest season starts on September 1, instead of on August 15.

The majority of states that permit the harvest and sale of American Ginseng have established a beginning harvest date of September 1. To improve consistency, reduce confusion and prevent potential illegal trade, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service urged all states to change the harvest season start date to September 1.
