    Abstract: This invention is based on unexpected effect of at least one thickener to maintain suspension or dispersion of solid particles in an oil medium. Such effect of thickener enables significant higher weight ratio of solid particles in such suspension composition as compared to previously known compositions. As a consequence, the suspension compositions provided herein enable more active ingredient in the solid particle to be present in a fixed volume or weight of such composition as compared to previously known compositions. One advantage of the suspension composition provided herein can be for aerial spraying of active ingredient such as herbicides, insecticides, or other growth regulating compounds.

    Abstract: Trehalose or trehalose-6-phosphate, when applied exogenously to citrus trees that are compromised in their growth and development with the condition referred to as citrus greening or HLB, can overcome the deadly effects of the problem. Renewal of tree tissue with trehalose or trehalose-6-phosphate has been documented to begin as soon as 72 hours after exogenous application to the dying tree. The tissue renewal continues with near complete renewal of the leaf canopy, development of fruiting buds, followed by flower development and then development of the flowers into abundant and healthy fruits. Much of what appeared to be dead wood tissue could be covered with healthy new leaves within 2 to 4 months after application. Addition of defined hormones to the soil application of trehalose or trehalose-6-phosphate further enhanced development of new canopy and root tissue.

  • Patent number: 8486863
    Abstract: The present invention relates to small chemical compounds that act as activators of lateral root formation in plants. More specifically, it relates to small chemical compounds that are structurally not related to auxin but do have a similar effect on root density development in plants. Preferably, these compounds act more specifically on root development than auxin, and may have a different working mechanism.

  • Publication number: 20130133108
    Abstract: The present disclosure provides methods of making and using plant extracts that include quercetin, which are generated from transgenic plants that have decreased pirin activity (prn-). Such transgenic plants and their extracts can be used to increase tolerance of a plant to a stressor, such as UV light, as well as treat tumor cells (such as kill cancer cells), prevent certain types of fungal infections (such as C. gattii), and increase antioxidant activity. The present disclosure also provides methods of making and using plant extracts that are depleted of quercetin, which are generated from transgenic plants that have increased pirin activity (prn+). Such transgenic plants and their extracts can be used to prevent certain types of fungal infections (such as C. neoformans). Also provided are compositions that include the prn- or prn+ extracts, such as a plastic coated with the extract.
