Ginseng is also negatively affected by deer browsing, urbanization, and habitat fragmentation. It can also be grown commercially, under artificial shade, woods cultivated, or wild-simulated methods and is usually harvested after three to four years depending on cultivation technique; the wild-simulated method often requires up to 10 years before harvest.
