It is shown that through nonlinear mode coupling processes long wavelength low frequency strong E x B turbulence can stabilize short wavelength high frequency Farley-Buneman modes in a weakly ionized low pressure convecting plasma. Favorable comparisons are made with experimental observations. Author
