The medicinal plants (MAPs) have been cultivated in field conditions worldwide, particularly in Asia, Africa, and Europe, due to the superior economic prospects they offer compared to regular field crops. The cultivation of MAPs exhibits significant economic potential; yet, it is hindered by various limitations that impede its adoption as arable crops. Moreover, the majority of individuals residing in rural regions are involved in agricultural activities, which significantly contributes to the advancement of rural areas. In order to achieve this objective, central or regional administrations must formulate appealing policies and implement social and cultural initiatives targeting rural regions. In addition, the provision of opportunities to individuals living within their respective regions will serve to mitigate the phenomenon of rural-to-urban migration.
