UNDATED (AP) -- U.S. Senators Russ Feingold and Herb Kohl are working to keep a provision in the federal Farm Bill that would enforce country-of-origin labeling for ginseng roots.

Butch Weege is executive director of the Wisconsin Ginseng Board.

He says the state's growers have dealt for years with deliberately mislabeled ginseng from other countries, undercutting their profits.
