Funding Agency: ICFRE

• To identify high Berberine yielding B. aristata provenances in Himachal Pradesh.
• To develop nursery techniques for mass propagation of identified elite clones/provenances of B. aristata
Seven provenances of Berberis aristata in Himachal Pradesh were screened and identified high berberine (2.81%) yielding plant populations.
