The Ontario Ginseng Growers Association is a nonprofit organization of producers of Panax quinquefolius who grow, harvest and sell the root. The Association supports research into new varieties of ginseng, new production methods and harvesting advances. It also develops strategic marketing directions for the industry as a whole, while working with government partners and others to develop a larger market for North American ginseng.
More than 140 growers in the OGGA have the largest production of North American ginseng (Panax quinquefolius) in the world. The Association pursues crop protection for industry production issues, communicates market conditions through newsletters and grower reports, funds research on both production and use of ginseng and provides networking opportunities for its members with various social events.
A traded good in Ontario since 1716, Ontario ginseng has made Canada the largest producer in North America.
