    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...

    I have posted a couple of Facebook post with some of the rice crop results in Indonesia that used GroAloe.  Check them out.  Our own Dr. Moning has been overseeing the proper use of GroAloe on rice and other crops.  Looks like it is turning out to be another great rice crop season.  I hate to sound like a broken record, but it works on all cereal crops, fruit trees, herbs, tomatoes.  We are still in the process of expanding GroAloe's potential use.  Trust me the stuff works!!  This not just another new fangled product.  GroAloe is going to change farming as we know it.

    Stronger policy support needed to reap the benefits of growing trees near crops

    Agroforestry is a term used for land-use systems and technologies where woody perennials - trees, shrubs, palms, bamboos and such like - are deliberately used in the same plots as agricultural crops or livestock in a way that builds and channels ecological synergies. The approach is gaining in interest due to its ability to sequester carbon and mitigate climate change along with broadening the social, economic and environmental sustainability of rural development.

    FAO promotes the potential multiple roles of agroforestry, Semedo said, citing several examples including projects undertaken in lands facing outmigration in Nepal; to boost soil health and water conservation in the drought-prone regions of Guatemala and Honduras; and to introduce fruit trees in timber plantations in the Kyrgyz Republic.
