Conference Proceedings

Conference Proceedings are the written papers presented by speakers at our conferences.  Often they give details that the speaker wasn't able to include in the actual talk due to time constraints.  Occasionally (rarely), they are an outline of the speaker's presentation.  We find they are extremely helpful for technical information especially related to commercial production and marketing of herbs.   There are no "textbooks" on this subject so the proceedings are the next best thing.  We offer the past five years of papers.  Here are the talks that are presented in each one.  To order, click on the "Join Now" button at the left.  Publications can be ordered on that form.
