  • Pesticides linger longer in greenhouse crops

    Summary: Crops typically grown under glasshouses and poly-tunnels had higher levels and numbers of different pesticides in them than those typically grown in the open, researchers have found. They analyzed pesticide data in food taken from various points in the food chain and 'paired up' produce -- for example strawberries, which are typically grown undercover, were paired with berries such as gooseberries which are typically grown outside.   Researchers writing in the journal Chemosphere this week found that ...

  • Nitrogen sensor widespread in the plant kingdom

    Quantitatively, nitrogen is one of the most important nutrients for the growth of plant organisms -- from simple green algae to highly developed flowering plants. Nitrogen supply is essential for the development of all cell components, and as a good supply results in faster plant growth, it is commonly used as a fertiliser in agriculture. Nitrogen is assimilated in the chloroplasts of plant cells to produce the amino acid glutamine. This molecule serves as a ...

  • The application of plant growth regulator on landscape plant cultivation and maintenance management as well as the development trend

    Plant growth regulator is a kind of substance that is synthesized artificially and has plant hormones activity, which will be sprayed from external part, be absorbed by plants, enter the plant body and can eventually adjust the growth and development of plants. It has small dosage, high efficiency and small residual toxicity, which is mainly used in adjusting plant type, improving resistance, increasing output, improving quality, regulating development process and controlling plant sex differentiation as ...

  • Green prevention technology for crop diseases and pests

    Crop disease and pests green prevention technology is a set of green prevention system that mainly controls pest source and uses ecological regulation, biological control, physicochemical trapping and controlling technology as well as scientifically uses drug and other organic combination methods, which can cover preplanting period, growth period and post harvest period, including breeding strong seedling, disinfection and prevention before planting, scientific prevention in the growth period and residual body cleaning after harvest. Try to ...

  • Insect-resistant maize could increase yields and decrease pesticide use in Mexico

    Although maize was originally domesticated in Mexico, the country's average yield per hectare is 38% below the world's average. In fact, Mexico imports 30% of its maize from foreign sources to keep up with internal demand. To combat insect pests, Mexican farmers rely primarily on chemical insecticides. Approximately 3,000 tons of active ingredient are used each year just to manage the fall armyworm (Spodoptera frugiperda), in addition to even more chemicals used to control other pests ...
