Depending on the type, medicinal herbs are harvested either by a dedicated harvester or by hand. After harvesting, they are dried naturally or in dryers, normally floor chamber dryers, or in dedicated containers. Some manufacturers even use trolley dryers for medicinal herbs depending on their type and volume. After drying, the herbs need to be properly stored so as not to absorb moisture from the surrounding air. Depending on the type of herb and the final product desired, the recommended moisture level of the process line input is around 8–12%. Certain types of herbs need to be shredded before being fed into the line in order to achieve optimum capacity and high-quality processing. Finished products are delivered as flowers, leaves, seeds, milled material, powder, dust, etc., according to the client’s requirements.
