Welcome to the Center of Excellence for Medicinal plants in Sri Lanka. We are the pioneering center for medicinal plants in Sir Lanka.
Medicinal plant is a predominant part of Asiatic people over centuries, including Sri Lankan. At present, medicinal plant play the major role in making of pharmaceuticals, cosmetics and spices because those are free from health risks.
Our aim is to maintain the highest stock of medicinal plants as a Herbal Garden.
We are Department of Crop Science, faculty of Agriculture, University of Ruhuna and collaborating with Ministry of Indigenous medicine are forefront in this valuable event.
There is a sound traditional knowledge of medicinal plants inherited by the people of Sri Lanka currently the full potential of this group of plants has been exploited and there is a dearth of scientific information on the cultivation, management, extraction and produce value added products of medicinal plants. This has hampered the development of medicinal plant industry in Sri Lanka.
