New in 2022!

I first need to keep myself out of hot water with all the copyright police. This is a picture taken of a page in the American Fruit Grower magazine, February 2022! I like to subscribe to lots of publications and this is just one, but a special one since it has a section called, “Special Coverage Biologicals.”

There are lots of new products coming out this year for use in organic agriculture and it is a good thing. These companies are finding a good market for biologicals and the good market is driving them to research and test new products for the market. This list features soil amendments, fungicides, insecticides, fertilizers and more.

Here is another article I “stole” from Southwest Farm Press which they got from Wallaces Farmer. It is about a new company that has a botanical fungicide from the Soapbark tree in Chile. This new fungicide is not even approved in the US yet but has excellent control of botrytis blight commonly known as gray mold a problem in strawberries and many greenhouse and landscape crops. Syngenta is working with this company to bring products like this to market. The biological/organic world is changing fast!
