A new study from Cornell University found that using fresh thyme is one of the best ways to keep your plants from dying from lack of nutrients.
The research was published in the journal Nature Plants.
The study looked at the effects of adding fresh thymes to water samples collected from 25 varieties of wild, cultivated and experimental herbs and found that they both help keep plants alive and prevent their death from lack and damage.
“The more herbaceous the environment, the better,” said Jennifer Bilo, the study’s senior author and a graduate student at Cornell’s Graduate School of Agricultural and Life Sciences.
“That means adding fresh herbs to our landscapes is an important step towards protecting our health.”
The researchers tested herbs to see if they were safe for humans to eat and tested how they fared under conditions that would allow for a full range of nutrients, including nitrogen and phosphorus, as well as heat.
They also looked at whether they would tolerate some of the chemicals in herbicides.
The herbicides used in the study were Glyphosate and Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt), both of which are used to treat the herbicide glyphosate.
In general, the researchers said that the use of the herbicides to control weeds has not been shown to have a positive effect on herb populations.
“It’s an open question whether or not these are safe for herbivores, but we found no evidence that they are harmful to animals or plants,” Bilo said.
“This is a really promising study that’s showing that we need to consider these herbicides and use them with caution.”
The study also found that the addition of fresh herbs also reduced the chance that weeds would become resistant to herbicides, which is important for farmers because herbicide-resistant weeds can cause problems for farmers and consumers.
Herbicide resistance is one way that pests are becoming more widespread, and the Cornell researchers said it is a major issue for the agriculture industry.
“One of the most common ways we are failing farmers and growers is through the use and application of herbicides that can kill or reduce their crop, and we need that to be a part of our future,” said Bilo.
“We can’t have weeds that are resistant to glyphosate and the other herbicides we use.”
The new study also showed that the herb’s presence reduced the amount of damage that the plants suffered from pests.
“What we were able to show is that when we added fresh thyms to the water we were seeing a significant reduction in the damage caused by pests,” Bero said.
Herbicides aren’t the only factor that helps plants grow and thrive, but Bilo says that they need to be considered in conjunction with other things that help keep your soil and soil health.
“If we don’t have some kind of nutrient-rich soil, we can have soil erosion that’s a problem for the plants,” she said.
The researchers also found a number of other benefits to herbicide use, including helping plants grow faster, grow healthier and help farmers avoid chemicals.
Bilo and her co-authors suggest that the study also provides information that could be used by growers to reduce herbicide application to their fields.
The Cornell researchers say the study is one in a series of research papers they have published looking at how the effects are experienced in a variety of settings.
The goal is to provide information that can help growers improve the care and management of their crops.
“There’s so many other ways to manage your environment and improve your crop that we don’s not even thinking about,” Bato said.
