BIO POLYMER TECHNOLOGY

In the fight against plant diseases and pests, there are methods that generally keep the disease and harmful factor away from the host, destroy or reduce it, strengthen the plant immune system, and provide direct protection of the plant from disease and harmful factors. At the beginning of these methods, Chitosan (Chitosan) raw material obtained from shellfish such as crab and shrimp.

The biggest advantage of chitin and chitosan is that it is a renewable resource and an environmentally friendly natural biopolymer.

* Chitosan has protective antifungal, antimicrobial, antiviral, insecticidal properties in plants and many processed and unprocessed products.

*One of the most basic applications of chitosan; bacteria such as Staphylococcus aureus, Bacillus cereus, Escherichia coli, Proteus vulgaris; It can inactivate yeast cultures such as Saccharomyces cerevisiae and Rhodotorula glutensis and molds other than Zygomycetes.

*Inhibits the production of Aspergillus flavus metabolites such as Aflatoxin, Ochratoxin in products such as Corn, Hazelnut, Pistachio, Grape, Fig. It prevents large product losses.

*Chitosan is the most important polysaccharide that increases plant disease resistance and is effective in reducing post-harvest rot and increasing shelf life of many fruits such as tomatoes, peaches, kiwis, and pears.

* Activates and strengthens the immune system of the plant. It strengthens and protects the cell walls, accelerates the healing of wounds, stimulates the strengthening, growth and development of plants.

*When applied to the soil, it prevents the development of root and root collar rot, stimulates the growth of the root system in plants.

*It is used in soaking the seeds in water and planting seedlings to protect the plant from diseases.

* It has a strong inhibiting effect against Bacterial and Fungal Diseases, pests such as spider mites and nematodes.

*Chitosan is suitable for use in agriculture as a natural alternative to the use of pesticides that pollute the environment and harm human health.
