Chitosan is a type of fungicide and plant growth enhancer which is composed of randomly distributed B1-4 linked D glucosamine and N-acetyl-D glucosamine units. This chemical compound is used for seed treatment and as a fungicide to help plants to fight with fungal infections. It can also be used for the variety of purposes including biomedical, research, filtering and weight loss. Chitosan is capable of reducing environmental stress occurred due to drought and soil deficiencies by increasing yield, strengthening seed vitality and reducing decay of fruits, vegetables, and citrus crops.
