Chitosan is a natural material derived from chitin, which is found in the shells of crustaceans such as shrimp and crabs. It has been proven to have a range of beneficial effects on plants, including increased resistance to pests and diseases, improved growth and yield, and enhanced postharvest shelf life of produce. Yucca is known for its ability
Did You Know?? Chitosan Remediates Soils Containing Heavy Metals Chitosan remediates soil contaminated with heavy metals by binding with and immobilizing the heavy metal ions in the soil Immobility prevents the metals from leaching into groundwater or being taken up by plants.

What is chitosan and why is it effective? Crab and shrimp shells are made of the same material as crop destroying insects: chitin Chitin is not readily available to plants defense system, the soil microbiology has to break the chitin down into chitosan and chitinase, which IS able to be used immediately by the plant.
Published and publicly available research indicates that chitosan application is effective in treating common agricultural issues. Chitosan activates the plant defense system for 10-14 days. Powdery mildew, botrytis, and Pythium are not able to take hold. The phytochemicals that remain flowing through the plant make it inhospitable for pests and pathogens. Foliar application reduces transpiration
One focus of Regenerative Agriculture is to encourage high levels of diverse groups of beneficial rhizobacteria. These beneficial Plant Growth Promoting Rhizobacteria (PGPR) are essential in maintaining soil balance as they fix nitrogen, reduce heavy metals and produce phytohormones among many other accomplishments! Synthetic pesticides and fungicides can reduce microbial populations which are costly and
Why Should You Prime Seeds with Chitosan? Moisture levels in seeds and seedlings are critical. Water stress decreases seed germination and seedling growth rates, and chitosan is a proven abiotic stress reducer helpful in times of water scarcity. In addition, application of chitosan helps relieves salt stress, increases germination rates, speeds seedling growth and also
