Employees with hanging Artemisia

AFSRC scientists are developing small ruminant finishing systems, including applications of medicinal plants for improving animal health. Robert Arnold (Biological Science Lab Technician), N. Wade Snyder (Agricultural Science Research Technician), and James Fedders (Ecologist) pose with recently harvested Artemisia annua hung for shade drying. Different ways to dry the plant material are being studied. It appears that shade drying significantly increases artemisinin concentration in the leaves.
