The lack of research and standards related to rational fertilization of high-quality Chinese medicinal materials is one of the key bottlenecks restricting the modernization and internationalization of traditional Chinese medicine.In this paper,the status quo and related standards of fertilization in agriculture were sorted out.According to the requirements of pollution-free,green and organic agriculture on fertilizer quality and fertilization technology,the fertilization principle, fertilizer and fertilization techniques of high-quality Chinese medicinal materials were proposed.The principle of rational fertilization of high-quality Chinese medicinal materials should be based on organic fertilizers,supplemented by other fertilizers,efficiency of nutrient utilization and harmlessness of nutrients.Non-polluted Chinese herbal medicines were mainly using organic fertilizers,and were supplemented by other chemical fertilizers.Green Chinese herbal medicines were fertilized on the basis of pollution-free fertilization,and only a small amount of fertilizers were allowed. Organic Chinese herbal fertilizers must not be exposed to heavy metals,pesticides and other harmful chemicals and must be harmlessly treated,and artificial chemical synthetic fertilizers and chlorine-containing fertilizers were entirely not allowed while some natural mineral fertilizers could be used.Some natural mineral soil conditioner can be limited used. According to the nutritional and physiological characteristics of medicinal plants,soil fertility and fertilizer,the fertilization method should determine the appropriate dosage and proportion of fertilize and the corresponding fertilization techniques.This paper provided a scientific reference for rational fertilization of high quality Chinese medicinal materials.
