Haldwani (Uttarakhand) [India], Jan 21 (ANI): Around 18 varieties of medicinal plants are being grown at Forest Research Centre in Uttarakhand's Haldwani.

The plants are used in making medicines for curing various diseases including diabetes and asthma.

The cylindrical plants that are being developed in the Haldwani Forest Research have medicinal properties that play an important role in the conservation of biodiversity.

Haldwani Forest Research Center, in-charge Madan Singh Bisht, said that according to a research, it is useful to create a contagious drug to cure deadly diseases such as dementia asthma.

"The specialty of all these cylindrical plants is that they all play a very important role in biodiversity. However, in Uttarakhand, more than 70percent of the vegetation is proving to be a boon for biodiversity besides medicines, which has become very important in view of their protection. It should be expected that the forest research will bring a plan to preserve the extinct species of Haldwani's celestial plants," Bisht added. (ANI)
