    Weed Control in Organic Soybean Farms

    By Vijayalaxmi Kinhal

    Updated 20 hours ago  

    Experts all agree that there is no silver bullet to control weeds in the organic cultivation of soybeans. Farmers need to use a combination of measures to keep weeds at bay in the short and long term. Soybean vs WeedsWeed control is the main problem in organic agriculture including in soybeans. It is more difficult to control weeds in soybeans because of their compact foliage, which takes longer than grain crops to produce an interlocking canopy that shades inter-row area. On the other hand, weeds have various natural traits that help them spread and establish...

    An Introduction to Augmentative Biocontrol

    By Thomas Grandperrin

    Published Apr 7  

    In the previous article in this series we discussed classical biocontrol, which is the practice of identifying the origins of pests found in local fields, then finding the natural enemies of those pests in their foreign origins and bringing the “enemy of my enemy” (otherwise known as “beneficials”) back from their homelands to local farms to renew old rivalries and help suppress pest populations. As we have seen, this strategy is usually coordinated, or at least regulated, by public organizations at a regional, national or even continental scale. But a lot of the pests damaging our crops are actually native to our regions and already have local natural enemies. The problem though is that the population of those control agents is often insufficient and on the decline, for various reasons, some of which we will discuss in an upcoming article. To highlight a few of the most common causes though, industrial farming techniques such as monocropping and the use of phytosanitary products can affect populations of beneficial insects...

    Usually, Harpin Protein acted as a plant health promoter activates a plant’s immune system, which triggers growth and defence genes. When harpin protein contacts with plants’ receptors on their seeds, roots, and leaves, it will trigger an early warning system — “Systemic Acquired Resistance,” leading to increased plant yields and health. Target Crops: Economic crops such as cannabis, tobacco, Asparagus, avocado, mango, grape, citrus, blueberry, kiwi, apple, grape, plum, cherry, blueberry, avocado, nectarine etc. Mechanism of Harpin ProteinIt works by stimulating the plant to grow under the general effects of stress and one of those stresses is fungal attack. Harpin itself does not directly affect the pathogens, nor does it enter the plant, rather it binds to receptors on the plant leaf and thereby triggers physiological processes within the plant...

The trial shows that, “The overall health of the Vineyard has completely transformed from weak and in some places, diseased plants, to a robust and healthy condition with many more grape shoots now forming. What is even more encouraging is that all of the new growth has not been bitten by any new or pre-existing leafhoppers.

Last but not least, scientists have recently discovered that roots actually secrete compounds that affect the microorganisms in the soil, which can help protect the plants from disease and encourage it to absorb nutrients from the soil.

    Why Mycorrhiza is important in Agriculture

    By Darren Chan

    Published Jul 12, 2019  

    There is no doubt that mycorrhizae play the important role in plant growth. They help build soil aggregate structure to provides plant roots with a better & healthy environment to healthy and strong growth. Their symbiotic relationship with plants helps them access extra water and nutrients source in soil. How does it workMycorrhizal spores germinate when in contact with plant roots and form filaments (hyphae), which create a symbiotic relationship increasing the plants ability to uptake fixed nutrients and water, improving plant performance. Mycorrhizal fungi increase the surface absorbing area of roots 100 to a 1,000 times, thereby greatly improving the ability of the plant to access soil resources...

    Trichoderma's advantages on control soil pathogens

    By Darren Chan

    Published Mar 25, 2019  

    Here we would like to introduce trichoderma‘s effect on control soil pathogens. Trichoderma grows on the surface of roots, where it provides disease control and enhances root growth. Its spores survive in the soil, but the food it lives on is mostly secreted from the root surface. Since the fungus multiplies on its own, it is different from seed-applied fungicides. First, only a little needs to be applied because it will grow to continually cover the roots...

    5 reasons to choose chitosan oligosaccharide in organic agriculture

    By Darren Chan

    Published Jan 22, 2019  

    In the application of agricultural production, chitosan oligosaccharides not only make crops grow better and robust, but also has obvious effects in stress resistance and pest resistance. Numerous studies have shown that chitosan oligosaccharides can induce broad-spectrum resistance, enhance the plant’s own defense ability, inhibit the growth of a variety of plant pathogenic microorganisms, and it is non-toxic and can be microbial degradation, and will not pollute the environment. This makes it an important role in agricultural production as a new type of green production. 1.

    When it comes to drought prevention, everyone thinks that they may need more watering. Now, there is a better way that we can use microbiological fertilizers like Bacillus mucilaginosus to prevent drought. The reason is that: Bacillus mucilaginosus is also called silicate bacteria. It has a strong potassium-dissolving ability, which is selected from the roots of crops and produced by industrial fermentation with a specific medium. Through its life activities in the soil, it increases the supply of plant nutrient elements, stimulates crop growth, inhibits harmful microbial activity, and has a strong effect of increasing production...

    Experts all agree that there is no silver bullet to control weeds in the organic cultivation of soybeans. Farmers need to use a combination of measures to keep weeds at bay in the short and long term. Soybean vs WeedsWeed control is the main problem in organic agriculture including in soybeans. It is more difficult to control weeds in soybeans because of their compact foliage, which takes longer than grain crops to produce an interlocking canopy that shades inter-row area. On the other hand, weeds have various natural traits that help them spread and establish...

    An Introduction to Augmentative Biocontrol

    By Thomas Grandperrin

    Published Apr 7  

    In the previous article in this series we discussed classical biocontrol, which is the practice of identifying the origins of pests found in local fields, then finding the natural enemies of those pests in their foreign origins and bringing the “enemy of my enemy” (otherwise known as “beneficials”) back from their homelands to local farms to renew old rivalries and help suppress pest populations. As we have seen, this strategy is usually coordinated, or at least regulated, by public organizations at a regional, national or even continental scale. But a lot of the pests damaging our crops are actually native to our regions and already have local natural enemies. The problem though is that the population of those control agents is often insufficient and on the decline, for various reasons, some of which we will discuss in an upcoming article. To highlight a few of the most common causes though, industrial farming techniques such as monocropping and the use of phytosanitary products can affect populations of beneficial insects...

    Harpin Protein Plant Elicitor For Cannabis

    By Darren Chan

    Published Feb 4  

    Usually, Harpin Protein acted as a plant health promoter activates a plant’s immune system, which triggers growth and defence genes. When harpin protein contacts with plants’ receptors on their seeds, roots, and leaves, it will trigger an early warning system — “Systemic Acquired Resistance,” leading to increased plant yields and health. Target Crops: Economic crops such as cannabis, tobacco, Asparagus, avocado, mango, grape, citrus, blueberry, kiwi, apple, grape, plum, cherry, blueberry, avocado, nectarine etc. Mechanism of Harpin ProteinIt works by stimulating the plant to grow under the general effects of stress and one of those stresses is fungal attack. Harpin itself does not directly affect the pathogens, nor does it enter the plant, rather it binds to receptors on the plant leaf and thereby triggers physiological processes within the plant...
