    By Rusty Kordick

    Published May 6, 2019

    Weed Control in Organic Soybean Farms

    By Vijayalaxmi Kinhal

    Published Oct 1  

    Experts all agree that there is no silver bullet to control weeds in the organic cultivation of soybeans... 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... For example, common lambsquarters (Chenopodium album), sunflower (Helianthus annuus), and yellow nutsedge (Cyperus esculentus) can reduce the germination of soybeans by 40-90%. Weeds not only compete with soybeans for space, light, and nutrients, but they can also transmit diseases and pests, and cause problems during harvesting...

    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...
