The chitosan (CHT) biopolymer is a de-acetylated chitin derivative that exists in the outer shell of shrimp, shellfish, lobster or crabs, as well as fungal cell walls. Effects of Chitosan Application on the Shoot Growth of Rice and Soybean. The first experiment, field experiment was laid out in a randomized complete block, design with four replications. Furthermore, higher pigment values, N, P, K, and total phenolic content, antioxidant capacity, chlorogenic acid, and rutin content were detected on plants treated with 200 mg/L chitosan. All the treatments significantly increased the fruit yield, number of fruits, average fruit, p>The yield of maize is highly sensitive to nitrogen fertilizer rates and plant spacing. This review emphasizes the role and mechanisms of CHT as a plant growth promoter and disease suppressor, and its future implications in agriculture. “Chitosan as a potential natural compound to control pre and postharvest diseases of horticultural commodities.” Crop Protection 25.2 (2006): 108-118. CH5 caused an increase in maize P The optimal treatment of BR at 10 −8 M (89%) showed a low genetic similarity, based on sequence-related amplified polymorphism (SRAP) analysis, comparable with the control and 200 mg/L chitosan. Ipil-Ipil (Leucaena leucocephala), Ghoraneem (Melia azedarach) and Black siris (Albizia lebbeck).

Chitosan is derived from natural sustainable organic bio-polymers (complex carbohydrate compounds). s, E, and C The CHT emerged as a promising agent used as a plant growth promoter. Chitosan was compared to a conventional fungizide. Agricultural applications of chitin and chitosan: Fertilizer and pesticide. Pot and field experiments were conducted in two consecutive years at the pot-yard and experimental field of Bangladesh Institute of Nuclear Agriculture, Mymensingh, during March to June 2010 and 2011, to investigate the effect of foliar application of chitosan, a growth promoter, on morphological, growth, biochemical, yield attributes and fruit yield of okra cv. Fungicidal Activity of Chitosan However, as this experiment was conducted for one season and in one location, the comprehensive recommendation could be drawn by investigating at more locations over years for this hybrid maize.
