Forest Medicinal Resources Research

Forest Medicinal Resources Research Center (FMRRC), National Institute of Forest Science, located in Puggi-eup, Yeongju-si, Gyeongsangbuk-do is the national research center specialized in medicinal resources in the forest sector. It is in charge of breeding new varieties and conservation of forest medicinal resources, cultivation technologies and post-harvest management, conducting analysis on pharmacological activation of natural raw materials and their commercial utilization .
To achieve these tasks, it researches the development of technologies for in situ and ex situ conservation through a collection of forest medicinal resources based on their physiology and gene ecology, on development of highquality cultivation technologies and breeding of high functioning new forest medicinal plant varieties, and development of
technologies for value-added resource utilization by establishing the mapping and the library of pharmacological activation and medicinal extracts of forest medicinal resources.

Research on utilization of forest medicinal resource

It charges of work on the identification of suitable cultivation area of the major forest medicinal resources being native and/or cultivation, and establishing, mapping and the library of pharmacological activation by environmental analysis and useful ingredients for effective production management, searching of active substances and evaluation of efficacy, utilization by smart farm through control environment for growth in the suitable cultivation area of forest medicinal resources decreased by climate change.

Research on the breeding and cultivation of forest medicinal resources

It charged of work on supporting commercialization of medicinal materials after collecting, conversation, management integrated from locally/individually/colony extracts of native medicinal resources to a crude drug, voucher specimen and seed, also, characteristics survey of selected medicinal plants for functional new variety, components analysis and management of promising lines, increasing of active compound contents by altitude in the forest and cultivation methods for the development of cultivation techniques for increasing of functional substances, sustainable environmental control techniques based on chemical ecology and organic agricultural materials such as microbial pesticides, safe use practices for pesticides based on PLS(Positive Lists System) to Korean angelica (Angelica gigas), Cnidium Rhizoma (Cndidium officinale), Peony (Paeonia lactiflora) and Korean thistle (Cirsium setidens)
