Abstract:
Soil health is the most crucial element in today’s agricultural world due to the increased use of chemical inputs. So, for aiding and prolonging soil health, it becomes more and more important to use biopolymer-based material. Chitosan is the biopolymer that is produced from organisms. The biodegradable nature of biopolymers makes them environment-friendly and conserves the soil. This review paper aims to survey the influence of chitosan on morphological and physiological parameters of crops. This review firstly comments on the effect of chitosan on some vital morphological parameters like plant height, leaf area, leaf area index and secondly it through light on important physiological parameters like dry matter and relative water content. Furthermore, this review concludes the positive influence of chitosan in agriculture.
