Résumé du projet
Despite the fact that Lebanon’s climate is suitable for the propagation and production of medicinal plants. Lebanon imports most of these plants from outside. The main reason for farmers not to propagate medicinal plants is their limited knowledge of producing these plants in an economically efficient way. Add to this the limited knowledge in marketing of these products.
