ABSTRACT
This article reports that Eden Bioscience Corp., which develops, manufactures and markets innovative, natural protein based products for improving crop production and plant health, has announced it has received unconditional registration from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for ProAct, a new generation of foliar-applied harpin protein designed to increase field crop yields. The company plans to register ProAct in all states except California for use during the 2005 season. Using an average price of $3 per bushel, this would calculate into a profit increase of about $15 an acre for approximately a $3 investment.
