The Buchu Farming plant is used for almost anything. From uninary infections to hypertension to name a few. However,, this indigenous plant, nature to South Africa, is more than just medicine. The buchu plant is occasionally found or cultivated in some areas of KZN and the Eastern Cape. It is predominantly known to  thrive in the Western Cape.

Buchu Profitability

Until recently most buchu was harvested from wild plants. However, the profits to be made have prompted scores of farmers  to begin cultivating the shrub. South Africa is producing approximately 600 tonnes of buchu a year and likely to increase by 25% annually. Buchu producers are even eyeing the world’s giant soft drink producers including Coca – Cola and Pepsi Co. Coke and Pepsi would use buchu, but there are not enough volume to supply what they would need. Potential Agripreneurs can now start this exciting venture with a proper and convincing Farming Business Plan or proposal.

Buchu Sustainability

Sustainability is playing a larger role than ever in buchu production. Growers utilize new techniques and technologies to protect the future of the crop. New irrigation systems and fire – prevention technology have allowed growers to protect their crops in ways that were previously impossible. This allow the new generation of buchu to remain safe, stable and sustainable for the foreseeable future. For centuries, buchu has provided perfumers & flavorists with an incredibly unique and versatile material that is nearly impossible to replicate.

Buchu Production

Buchu undoubtedly ranks amongst South Africa’s most important medicinal plants and export products (Moolla & Viljoen 2008). The rate of buchu production mirrors the trend described for honeybush. Cultivation expands when demand for the product is high. Also, when demand plummets, cultivated plants are removed to make space for more profitable crops (Muller 2015). Once a buchu field is established, the plants can live for 60 years & have relatively high yields for that duration.

Buchu is harvested once a year. About 30% of new growth can be harvested, without affecting the long term survival of the plant. Most cultivated buchu is used in the production of essential oil, which is of very high value.

Buchu Brew

Buchu tea consist of whole leaves and is generally steeped loose for 3 min. Because of its potent health benefits and strong flavor, it is frequently blended in small quantities into other teas. When steeped on its own, it creates a lightly green – colored, clear tea.
