KAL Botanical Garden

R & D Division of KAL has a prestigious herbal garden at Kottai, Aluva, which is actually a gene pool with more than 1200 species of rare and endangered medicinal plants, collected by conducting extensive surveys. These efforts also included certain hitherto unexplored tribal pockets, which are treasure groves of herbal wealth. This serves as a conservatory and nursery of herbs. The rare and endangered species forms major part of collections. The Company cultivates rare herbs under organic farming for the manufacture of medicines at its herbal farm spread over 42 acres at Thali, in Tamil Nadu.

Herbal Garden and a herbarium of these collected plants serve as a center of excellence to Ayurveda doctors, students and research scholars of various faculties and provide awareness to the public about our rich herbal heritage. The nursery attached to the herbal garden is a nodal agency, engaged in the propagation and dissemination of quality planting materials to farmers with a buy back arrangement to inculcate the habit of medicinal farming among them.
