A field covered in black netting enclosures a pseudo-ginseng farm in Dehou Town, Wenshan County, Yunnan Province. Wenshan is the origin and main production area for pseudo-ginseng and accounts for almost 98 percent of China's total pseudo-ginseng yield. A Greenpeace investigation has revealed that many such Chinese herbs are covered in pesticide residue considered illegal in China and highly hazardous by the World Health Organisation.
