Plant Health Care, a provider of naturally derived products to the agriculture and landscape industries, announced it signed a non-exclusive agreement with Syngenta Crop Protection Inc. to develop and market Plant Health Care's Harpin protein as a foliar spray in combination with Syngenta's herbicide products containing glyphosate.


The combined treatment will be suitable for all crops that are tolerant to glyphosate, which is applied on more than 200 million acres worldwide per year, Plant Health Care suggested.


In trials, Harpin has been shown to significantly increase yields on a variety of crops when applied in combination with other active ingredients including glyphosate and fungicides, the company claims. Syngenta, after working with various Harpin formulations, will test multiple formulations of Harpin and glyphosate with the potential of offering new combined products as crop treatment options.
