Tagete oil is extracted from the leaves, stalks and flowers by means of steam distillation. The harvesting time starts when the flowers are just starting to flower which is from middle March to seed time until end of May
Tagete is commercially planted and harvested at Highland Essential Oils but also harvested in the wild by the local people.
The bulk of our annual plant feedstock requirement of raw Tagete material supply comes from commercially cultivation on our own farm. Today, we cultivate around 500 ha of Tagete annually, which furnishes some 50% or more of our need for an output of 1 ton of oil per year. The targeted production volume is changed annually according to our best reading of the market.
