Anti fungal,Anti microbial, Anti Bacterial with growth promoter& keeping quality
Green Biotech has developed a new product which is extracted from shell of crab or shrimp called Chitosan. Chitosan Fertilizer is the compilation of what each product can do to protect and stimulate growth of your plants. Chitosan is a polysaccharide
which is known to be biocompatible, biodegradable and nontoxic. The scientific benefits of Chitosan have even been recognized in 1992. It improves seed germination, root development and disease resistance. Chitosan Fertilizer is a natural antimicrobial, antibacterial, and antifungal agent, tested and approved by US. EPA for use in agriculture & horticulture.
Oligosaccharides that cause hormonal effect on plant. Some of these responses include stem elongation, stimulation of ethylene production and antagonizing auxine, but they are best known for elicitation of various defensive actions.
It has been found that when fungus, attacks a plant, beta glucanase, is bio synthesized by the plant cell wall. This substance then proceeds to degrade the fungal cell wall, fragments from which amplify the effect. Some of fragments are beta glucans, another oligosacchrin, which began the production of the phytoalexins, lead to lignine synthesis and promote ethylene foremation. Lignin production strengthens the cell walls.
It can start,regulate and directly effect the opening and closing of certain gens and regulate process of plant growth. Oligosaccharin can reduce and eliminate the encroachment of pathogenic agent especially against fungal infection, which are difficult to control.
Product has no poison, no residue is left over and fit for organic farming and non-polluting. Chitosan oligosaccharin can activate plant and induce plant to produce antiviral substance.
