  • Patent number: 10010079
    Abstract: There is a need for a selective, low-risk herbicide that can be used to control weeds in cereal cultures and turf. The present invention discloses that a bacterial secondary metabolite, thaxtomin and optionally another herbicide is an effective herbicide on broadleaved, sedge and grass weeds. Thaxtomin A and structurally similar compounds can be used as natural herbicides to control the germination and growth of weeds in cereal, turf grass, Timothy grass and pasture grass cultures with no phytotoxicity to these crops. As a natural, non-toxic compound, thaxtomin can be used as a safe alternative for weed control in both conventional and organic farming and gardening systems.

  • Patent number: 9883635
    Abstract: An improved method to produce artificial light for plant cultivation, an illumination device with a semiconductor light emission solution and device suited for plant cultivation in a greenhouse and/or dark growth chamber environment are described. The best mode is considered to be a lighting device with LEDs that produces an emission spectrum similar to the photosynthetically active radiation (PAR) spectrum in a dark growth chamber. The methods and arrangements allow more precise spectral tuning of the emission spectrum for lights used in plant (310, 311) cultivation. Therefore unexpected improvements in the photomorphogenetic control of plant growth, and further improvements in plant production, especially in dark growth chambers, such as basements, are realized.

  • Patent number: 9657307
    Abstract: Disclosed are a herbicide resistance gene and use thereof, wherein 1) the amino acid sequence of the encoded protein is at least more than 80% identical to SEQ ID NO:1; and 2) the encoded protein is capable of resulting in resistance to at least one of the following types of herbicides: acetolactate synthase (ALS)-inhibiting herbicides, protoporphyrinogen oxidase (PPO)-inhibiting herbicides, p-hydroxyphenylpyruvate dioxygenase (HPPD)-inhibiting herbicides, photosystem II-inhibiting herbicides, and synthetic auxin herbicides. The gene disclosed herein can be introduced into a plant to obtain a transgenic plant against herbicides. A method is disclosed for obtaining an herbicide-resistant transgenic plant by using an herbicide-resistant gene. Such herbicide-resistant transgenic plant can prevent damage of herbicides to the plant, providing a convenient and economical means for selectively killing weeds.

    Abstract: The present invention refers to a method for controlling undesired vegetation at a plant cultivation site, the method comprising the steps of providing, at said site, a plant that comprises at least one nucleic acid comprising a nucleotide sequence encoding a wild-type hydroxyphenyl pyruvate dioxygenase or a mutated hydroxyphenyl pyruvate dioxygenase (mut-HPPD) which is resistant or tolerant to a coumarone-derivative herbicide and/or a nucleotide sequence encoding a wild-type homogentisate solanesyl transferase or a mutated homogentisate solanesyl transferase (mut-HST) which is resistant or tolerant to a coumarone-derivative herbicide, and applying to said site an effective amount of said herbicide. The invention further refers to plants comprising mut-HPPD, and methods of obtaining such plants.

  • Publication number: 20140349851
    Abstract: Plant growth enhancing mixture and method of selectively timing the application of same during the development of crop plants or other plants to positively augment cell number increase and cellular development of crop plants or other plants to enhance development and/or productivity of the economic portion of the crop plant or other plant. Application of the plant growth enhancing mixture at flowering enhances both weak flowers and normally strong flowers. The plant growth enhancing mixture and method of application have also been shown to impart varying disease resistance to the treated crop or other plants. The plant growth enhancing mixture and method of application also increases the depth and strength of rooting for greater access and transport of water and nutrients for growth and productivity of the crop plant.

  • Publication number: 20140342909
    Abstract: There is a need for a selective, low-risk herbicide that can be used to control weeds in cereal cultures and turf. The present invention discloses that a bacterial secondary metabolite, thaxtomin and optionally another herbicide is an effective herbicide on broadleaved, sedge and grass weeds. Thaxtomin A and structurally similar compounds can be used as natural herbicides to control the germination and growth of weeds in cereal, turf grass, Timothy grass and pasture grass cultures with no phytotoxicity to these crops. As a natural, non-toxic compound, thaxtomin can be used as a safe alternative for weed control in both conventional and organic farming and gardening systems.
