EDEN Bioscience announces that it will start marketing ProAct, a new plant health regulator product. The company recently received EPA registration for it. Eden reports that ProAct is a new generation of foliar-applied harpin protein designed to increase field crop yields. Corn growers will try it out in field trials with the National Corn Growers Association.

Eden Bioscience says that ProAct “activates growth mechanisms that result in improved plant vigor, increased plant stamina, and healthier plants, which in turn reinforce the plant's ability to generate growth and stress-defense responses. This reinforcing circle of plant health results in improved yields.”
