Chitosan Fertilizer Production

Plant growth-promoting properties of chitosan as a growth regulator, resistance to pests and diseases, signal regulation, effects on nuclear deformation and apoptosis. Chitosan can improve plant defense mechanisms by stimulating photochemistry and enzymes related to photosynthesis. Furthermore, the electrophysiological modification induced by chitosan could actually make it useful as herbicide. Chitosan has excellent effects in improving soil fertility and plant growth, as well as plant growth promoters. It is concluded that chitosan can play a key role in modern agricultural production and can be a valuable source for promoting the sustainability of agroecosystems. Future recommendations will be based on current achievements and significant gaps. In addition, chitosan has made a great contribution to reducing fertilizer pollution and managing agricultural pests and diseases in modern agriculture. Chitosan can be made into fertilizer in the form of organic water-soluble fertilizer, and chitosan can also be used as a slow-release material to improve the utilization rate of fertilizer.

Chitosan from Marine Sources

Chitosan is obtained after chitin is deacetylated to varying degrees. Chitin comes from fungi and algae of arthropods and lower plants, the former is abundant in the ocean, and shrimp and crab are the most productive. Chitosan can also be prepared directly from shrimp shells and snow crab.

Chitosan Fertilizer Production

Function on Crops

  • As a seed growth regulator.
  • Irrigation treatments to improve crop yields.
  • As a slow-release fertilizer, it improves soil structure.
  • When foliar is applied, it allows plants to grow with less water.
  • The application of chitosan fertilizers can trigger plant defense responses and lead to a significant reduction in disease pressure.
