Messenger is a protein which is derived during a process where a small protein is isolated from a naturally occurring bacteria. When applied, this specific protein sends a unique signal or “Message” throughout the plant when applied. The harpin protein triggers the plant into thinking it’s under a bacterial attack. This false alarm creates a multi-faceted sequence of physiological and biochemical reactions that increase the plant’s natural defenses and place the plant on high alert.
Messenger-treated plants exhibit accelerated growth, early flowering, increased fruit set, cell division and elongation leading to stronger and healthier plants with a reduction in diseases and viruses. Messenger is compatible with many other applied products and is used to increase overall production and quality. Messenger is widely used on citrus, grapes, pome fruit, potatoes and vegetables. Messenger is also a key product in the production of cannabis.
