  • Determining biocontainers’ carbon footprint

    Many efforts to reduce the environmental impacts associated with commercial horticulture production have failed to influence the general public. For example, one recent study showed that the use of organic fertilizers offered no significant marketing advantage to producers of floral crops. In contrast to the promotion of organic products, the use of biocontainers (plant material-based, biodegradable pots) as alternatives to conventional plastic containers has been shown to resonate with many consumers. The authors of a ...

  • Present Situation of Abamectin Preparations in China

    Abamectin has developed for more than 10 years in the Chinese market. With high efficiency, low toxicity and high selectivity, it has become a widely accepted mainstream pesticide, and recommended by the Ministry of Agriculture as pollution-free pesticides. However, although the market has welcomed the avermectin products, there are still some problems. In 2011, insecticide consumption in the Chinese market is about 30% less than usual; avermectin preparation has a corresponding decline in sales. Abamectin is ...

  • Carbon loss from soil accelerating climate change

    Research published in Science today found that increased levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere cause soil microbes to produce more carbon dioxide, accelerating climate change. Two Northern Arizona University researchers led the study, which challenges previous understanding about how carbon accumulates in soil. Increased levels of CO2 accelerate plant growth, which causes more absorption of CO2 through photosynthesis. Until now, the accepted belief was that carbon is then stored in wood and soil for a ...

  • Abamectin and Emamectin Benzoate

    As an efficient broad-spectrum insecticide, abamectin is relatively safe to mammals and environmental compatibility. With more extensive use, pests’ resistance to abamectin has enhanced. Therefore, the development of the industry will turn to produce abamectin derivatives products such as ivermectin, emamectin, acetyl abamectin and milbemectin. The market will be expanded in fields such as insecticide miticide, livestock dual-use insect repellents and home health medication. Since 1995, production of abamectin’s active compound has been increased at an ...

  • Pathogenic E. coli binds to fresh vegetables

    Food-poisoning outbreaks linked to disease-causing strains of the bacterium Escherichia coli are normally associated with tainted meat products. However, between 20-30% of these are caused by people eating contaminated vegetables, as was seen in the 2011 outbreak in Europe that caused 53 deaths. Research presented today at the Society for General Microbiology's Annual Meeting in Liverpool shows that the disease-causing E. coli O157:H7 interacts directly with plant cells, allowing it to anchor to the surface ...

  • The Development of Abamectin Market

    Abamectin is currently the most popular and most competitive new bio-pesticide product on sale. It is new antibiotic bio-pesticides and 16-membered ring macrolide compound with insecticidal, acaricidal, nematicidal activity produced by fermentation of griseus streptomyces avermitilis. The original drug is white or yellowish-white crystalline powder with the active ingredient content of 75%~80% at room temperature, not easy to break down, nor decomposition phenomenon in pH 6-9 solutions at 25°C. In the late 1980s, China obtained 7501 ...
