    chitosan oligosaccharide

    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... Inducing the production of plant resistance proteinsChitosan oligosaccharides and their derivatives can induce plants to produce resistance proteins against pathogens. Many studies have shown that chitooligosaccharides induce plants to produce chitinase, chitosanase and l-3-glucanase. Chitinase, chitosanase and 1,3-glucanase induced by chitosan oligosaccharides also have synergistic effects with each other, so that the antibacterial effect is more obvious...

    Chitosan & mycorrhiza complement each other for soil healthy

    By Darren Chan

    Published Feb 12, 2019 

    Researchers are studying the effects of chitosan on mycorrhiza... It would be no harmful increase in the mycorrhiza, chitinase after observing the soil chitosan-treated. The increasing in lignification of plant cell walls after treatment with chitosan can defend the mycorrhizal fungi of arbuscular or ectodermal layers, because both of them were contacting the side roots of plants near the root crown, meanwhile the rhizomes are completed and form the root hairs... There are two patents created, a solution on adding chitosan into a fertilizer to enhance the plant, promote mycorrhiza. Chitosan is aimed to improving the soil living conditions against soil-borne pathogens...

    Nuisance Lawsuits are Taking a Bite Out of Big Pork

    By Maria Dampman

    Published Aug 17, 2018 

    A Little Background on the SubjectBecause we need farmers to produce the food we eat, in the past there have been protections for farmers against what are called nuisance lawsuits... These statutes, in most states are simple, broad guidelines, with the expressed purpose to discourage nuisance suits... However, if the farm sets up operation next door to a neighborhood that was already there, then there is a certain time limit where the residents may bring a case should a nuisance claim arise... CAFOs usually house hundreds or thousands of livestock within a confined area to be raised to a certain size, and then are shipped out for slaughter... When you have improperly managed large amounts of feces and urine that create a nuisance for those who live in close proximity, illness, disease and contamination of ground and water supplies are not only possible, but likely...

    AgriTech Accelerator program - Increased efficiency in Food production value chain through New Technologies

    The program targets only science and technology-backed startups (pre-seed, seed, and growth stage) and budding entrepreneurs (Idea Stage). Individuals, teams and registered entities (CSO/NGO, LLC, LTD, etc.) both from Armenia and around the world are eligible to apply if they offer solutions to tackle the following challenges in the agricultural sector:

    VERTICAL AND URBAN FARMING - 95 percent less water used, less fertilizer and nutritional supplements, and no

    pesticides, while boosting productivity. E.G. San Francisco-based Plenty’s field-scale indoor farms combine

    agriculture and crop science with machine learning, IoT, big data, and climate-control technology, enabling it to grow

    healthy food while minimizing water and energy usage. Governments have also initiated initiatives around this

    technology.

    GENETIC MODIFICATION AND CULTURED MEATS - Clustered, regularly interspaced, short palindromic repeat

    (CRISPR) technology is an important new approach to genome editing that allows greater selectivity and reduces the

    element of chance. The technique not only can create breeds with improved yields and resistance to adverse

    conditions, but can also be used to propagate crops with essential vitamins, nutrients, and minerals. CRISPR Is

    facilitating the generation of engineered animal food products. E.g. MosaMeat, a Netherlands based company, is

    among the handful of startups using the technology.

    APPLYING 3D PRINTING TECHNOLOGY TO FOOD - 3D printing, which is becoming important in manufacturing

    industries, is now being applied to food production. 3D printing (also known as additive manufacturing) is a process

    whereby layers of material are formed to create objects—and in this case, familiar dishes. Experts believe printers

    using hydrocolloids (substances that form gels with water) could be used to replace the base ingredients of foods

    with renewables like algae, duckweed, and grass.

    Application Deadline: May 23, 2020
