Harpin Protein and your garden

As technology moves forward, new products emerge and gardening is no different. With so many variables to consider, technological advances in horticultural systems, solutions and nutrient delivery mechanisms are now making it even easier. 

The latest in gardening, to stir up some interesting conversations, is a new alpha/beta protein extracted from plants called Harpin protein, an activated protein technology blended with essential micronutrients, these micronutrients are chelated within the blend to ensure a slow consistent delivery of nutrients over the course of 3-10 days.

  • Photosynthesis increases by up to 20%
  • Increased vigor, yield and harvest quality
  • Improves nutrient absorption
  • Increases plant resilience
  • Reduces on set of Botrytis
  • Increases product longevity
  • Can prevent end rot on blossoming crops
  • Massive increase in fruit sugars, 35% increases have been reported.
  • Calcium absorption rate increases by more than 20%
  • Reduces bacteria wilt
  • A.S.A. Tested
  • Cornell University tested


Harpin proteins are applied via foliar mist and can also be used as a seed or tuba scarification/pre-treatment.

Harpin proteins work by stressing the plant out by overloading the chloroplasts with calcium deposits, this naturally forces the plant to ‘defend itself’ activating the stress-defence pathway and stress activated growth systems allowing new growth to reproduce very quickly.

Rapid growth, ensures performance and survival!

Resulting in a healthier, vibrant and more productive plant with an increase in crop production, cell stamina, nutritional uptake and vegetative growth (depending on time of application).

Laboratory testing confirms that the use of Harpin proteins speed up flowering and maturation times.

As a gardener, I would highly advise trying this product, it is wonderful to watch the process happen and as a reward you will have monster plants that will return super healthy harvests.

Try it on some struggling plants and see for yourself!
