    Top 4 ways to stimulate root growth

    By Darren Chan

    Published Sep 3, 2019

    Importance of healthy rootsFirst, they anchor the plant in place, resisting the forces of wind and running water or mudflow. Secondly, the root system takes in oxygen, water and nutrients from the soil, to move them up through the plant to the stems, leaves, and blooms. where they can interact with sunlight to produce sugars and energy for the plant. 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... And promotes root growth, flowering, and fruit set...

    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...

    Springtime is a great time. Nature comes alive with activity. It reminds me of preparing for a formal event, where everyone dresses up in their finest outfits!

    With #bloom being the “grand occasion” and the current conditions, this Gala apple block is about a week away from bloom stage.

    There is so much potential at this time. Potential that growers work to harness and nurture into the kind of fruits you enjoy eating. #CCAtip #WAAg #waapples

    India is the agriculture based country. Now a day, agricultural product yield is decrease for the reason of disease affect the plants like fungus, virus diseases. In this paper, we detect the tree leaves and fruits disease using image processing techniques. In this paper apple, grapes and pomegranate disease are detected. The apple diseases are apple scab, apple rot, Marssonina leaf blotch, black rot canker, apple mosaic. The grape diseases are black rot, powdery mildew, downy mildew, anthracnose, bacterial leaf spot, and rust. The pomegranate diseases are bacterial blight, aspergillus fruit rot, anthracnose, cercospora fruit spot, cescospora leaf spot.
