This publication details trials conducted to evaluate chitosan in Australian field cropping situations. Chitosan is a plant defence booster derived from deactylation of chitin. Chitin is readily available from shellfish waste from food processing. Agricultural applications of chitosan are for stimulation of plant defence. Trials were conducted in organic and conventional crops.
