The National Chrysanthemum Society Endorses Messenger(R) for Healthier, More Productive Chrysanthemums.

BOTHELL, Wash. -- The National Chrysanthemum Society is pleased to announce the endorsement of Messenger(R) for use on Chrysanthemums. Based on trials utilizing Messenger on Chrysanthemums by members of the National Chrysanthemum Society as well as anecdotal testimony by members regarding their experiences with Messenger, the NCS believes that there are demonstrable benefits from using Messenger. The primary benefit observed was that much healthier chrysanthemums resulted.

Messenger features Harp-N-Tek(TM) protein technology exclusively from Eden Bioscience. Harp-N-Tek(TM) products are based on naturally occurring proteins called "harpins" which activate a plant's intrinsic ability to protect itself through growth and stress-defense responses. These responses enhance overall plant health, improve plant vigor and stamina, and result in improved flowering and quality. Messenger is a novel, effective, and environmentally sound tool for disease suppression and growth enhancement in all plants.
