Robert Arnold (Biological Science Lab Technician), N. Wade Snyder (Agricultural Science Research Technician), and Jim Fedders (Ecologist) stand with medicinal plants hung for drying. AFSRC scientists are testing different ways to dry plants and increase concentrations of beneficial compounds. So far, it seems that shade drying significantly increases artemisinin concentration in the leaves of Artemisia.
