CROP BIOSTIMULANTS AND BIOFUNGICIDES
CHITOSAN-active biopesticides represent a new tier of cost-effective
biological protection of crops for agriculture and horticulture.
CHITOSAN is produced commercially by deacetylation of chitin, which is the structural element in the exoskeleton of crustaceans.
CHITOSAN is used in agriculture as a BIOSTIMULANT & BIOFUNGICIDE and is approved as a plant protection product by European commision Regulation (EU) No 563/2014
LOCAL CIRCULAR ECONOMY
CHITOSAN can be commercially produced from by-products (exoskeletons) of the local Danish crustacean and mussel industry.
Purified CHITOSAN can be formulated, developed and registered for use as plant growth enhancers, and as ecologically friendly biopesticides that induce plant defence responses against fungal infections.
- CHITOSAN has has been researched and registered for applications in agriculture and horticulture, and chitosan salt received the first ever biopesticide label from the EPA.
- CHITOSAN is one of the most abundant biodegradable materials in the world.
- With a low potential for toxicity and abundance in the natural environment, CHITOSAN does not harm people, pets, wildlife or the environment when used according to label directions.
