Arysta tests PHC's harpin technolgy
The US-based, UK-listed bioproducts company, Plant Health Care (PHC - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania), has signed a research deal with Arysta LifeScience to evaluate its harpin technology as a foliar spray in combination with several Arysta products. Studies will take place on a range of crops under various environmental conditions. Harpin boosts yields by suppressing diseases and pests such as nematodes, as well as providing other plant health benefits, PHC points out. Bayer, Monsanto and Syngenta have various research and licensing deals with PHC for its harpin technology ( Agrow passim).
