This research was aimed at studying economical and functional considerations, creating live gene bank of medicinal plants (collection) as well as investigation of collective cultivation and breeding of aborigine and exotic species for scientific and investigative considerations to be applied in educational, investigative, and administrative situations. It also was aimed at preventing the genetic extinction of wild medicinal species as well as identifying the nature and resistance of the most important medicinal species which were provided from internal and external resources of the province. Conducting this procedure in the years 2010-2013, 28 species of medicinal plants were cultivated in two medicinal plants collection sites of the province located in the Meymand Research Center of Medicinal Plants and Jihad-E Keshavarzi Center of Kor town (northern Kamfirouz). These species included 20 families and 6 genuses. Seeds, cutting, and seedling of the species were provided from medicinal plants nurseries of Tabiat-E Sarzabz-E Zagros Company. This way, the season of plants cultivation, germination, Stablization, phenology, and resistance to climatic conditions of Meymand in Fars was studied. In addition to understanding of reproduction ways, water requirements, plant Adaptation to dryness, pests, diseases, and wild grass species in the farm were studied as possible. Through this study, among 28 cultivated medicinal plants species 24 species (85.7 percent) completed their phenplogy; 2 species (7.1 percent) remained in vegetative state, 1 species (3.6 percent) went green and, after a while, went dry. 1 species (3.6 percent) didn’t go green at all.
