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...

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...

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...

Chitosan oligosaccharide is known as plant vaccines and they are the third type of vaccine after human and animal vaccines... Soil Treatment - control of nematodes, improve soil condition, promote root developmentA, Kill nematodesChitosan oligosaccharide induces crops to produce chitinase that can decomposes and absorbs the chitooligosaccharides in nematodes body and eggs’ shell and dissolve the shell, resulting in the death of nematodes and eggs. Chitosan oligosaccharides can be often used on crops in advance to induce chitinase’s production at high level for long time to prevent nematodes. B, Optimize the floraAfter chitosan oligosaccharide is applied into the soil, it can cultivate a large number of beneficial bacterias such as actinomycetes in a short period... C, Healthy rootsChitosan oligosaccharide can obviously help the roots’ growth and development...

As we learn more about what goes on in the world beneath our feet, increased attention has been placed on soil organic matter. And for good reason. While it only makes up a small percentage of most soils, the Sustainable Agriculture Research & Education (SARE) says it’s the “very foundation for healthy and productive soils” — and the more organic matter there is, the better the results... In that same timeframe, one farmer in a sandy loam soil raised his average organic matter levels from 1... 5% without any manure, while another working in a loamy sand soil saw his levels increase from 1% to 1...

This past winter I spoke at the Pennsylvania Association of Sustainable Agriculture(PASA) and NOFA NJ 2018 Winter conferences. What an honor to be able to talk to so many enthusiastic like-minded people.

In 1995, Pennsylvania farmer Steve Groff was speaking at an event when he asked the audience the question: Do cover crops pay off?His thinking at the time was that he had been no-tilling since 1982, and maybe if he no-tilled long enough, he wouldn’t need them. Ray Weil, a soil ecologist with the University of Maryland, happened to hear his question and approached Groff about doing a cover crop study on his farm. It turned into a 12-year project, from 1995 to 2007. It was in 1999, four years into it, Groff got the answer to his question... “If you have 3-foot deep topsoil in Illinois, you’re not going to see a dramatic difference in the soil as you would in maybe another soil that’s on a hillside, or rocky, or sandier,” he says...
