No, you don’t. Even if the law of the 6 January 1931 n. 99 could seem unclear in some points, we think there is no prohibition entailed.

Normally medicinal plants are not suitable for speculations with a traditional agriculture which does not even recoup the costs. It is not possible to gain on the plan in itself. Medicinal plants always represent a strategical choice if considered in long run.
It is an other company which can introduce medicinal plants to a farming company. Working on medicinal plants means, in fact, at first equipment for the cultivation, then for the harvest and the post-harvest, and finally for the storage.
All this requires time, money and dedication.
To cultivate medicinal plants is a difficult choice, which can not be taken so immediately as it is based on long run company dinamics.
Agripharma is more or less completely independent for what concerns the cultivation of the plants. However some plants can not be cultivated in the area of the southern Veneto. This way, we buy them, from other agriculturists.

Farmers can charge Agripharma with those plants in manufacturing purposes and they can then have available finished products. These, he is insured have been manufactured in complete respect of sanitary and fiscal norms.

The concept of natural has multiple interpretations, but in the sector of medicinal plants everybody agrees about the fact that natural cures have to be originated from what only nature during his evolution has produced.
All the sector prefers using plants cultivated with organic farming techniques or wild plants, which have been picked up with supervision.
