This Round Table is aimed to discuss the variables that should be taken into account to obtain vegetable raw materials with good quality for the manufacture of phyto-pharmaceutical products, including the agricultural good practices, washing and disinfection norms, as well as those parameters defining the quality of vegetable drugs. The information will be divided into three presentations: the first one deals with agroecological production of plants, based on the accomplishment of agricultural good practices (cultivation place; sowing and recollection system; container, drying and storage of the drug). The second one is aimed to present the integral management of plagues without using chemical but biological and natural products, as well as agricultural practices. The last one will demonstrate that washing and chemical disinfection of vegetable materials after recollection is a guarantee for obtaining drugs with acceptable microbiological quality. Besides, it will be shown the importance of determining the pharmacognostical parameters of the drug to be commercialized.  In general, this Round Table will provide evidence supporting that the use of agroecological cultivation  has lead to the development of an agricultural technology and the creation of norms for microbiological and pharmacognostical quality control, leading to obtain enough vegetable raw materials with the requirements of quality  and safety for the elaboration of phytopharmaceutical preparations. As a result, an increment of drug production has been seen. On the other hand, some phytopharmaceutical products have been registered.
