Technical Abstract: Actaea racemosa(black cohosh) was one of the top ten selling medicinal products in both 2002 and 2003. Due to predicted increases in demand for plant material, it may become necessary to develop large-scale production protocols to replace and/or amend current supply methods. Currently, the majority of raw materials supplied to phytopharmaceutical companies are wildharvested from native populations in North America. There currently exists a lack of replicated data available on specifics of propagation by rhizome division and associated triterpene glycoside analysis.
