James, were I buying this year, I wouldn't start over $400/lb.    There is no indication from my market sources that suggest the market will be any stronger this year than last.  Remember, a commodity is only worth as much as someone is willing to pay for it at any given time.  If I can't sell ginseng I buy for more than I pay for it and make enough to keep my lights on....its not worth what I paid for it.
