Rice Production in Vietnam: Characteristics and Application of Chitosan
This work decides the suitable process for preparing chitosan resolution, and focuses on its applications in edible grain production, in particular concerning its activity suspiciously system of plants and growth supporter to increase rice production. Preparing chitosan resolutions from shrimp shells for edible grain production was investigated. The chitosan caused from shrimp shells utilizing dilute acetic acid confirmed effective in controlling plants contamination by microbial agents leading to bigger yields. The field data of our studies showed that the yields of edible grain significantly increased (~31%) afterwards applying chitosan answer. In general, applying chitosan increased edible grain production and reduced cost of result significantly. Chitosan and chitosan solutions adapted by the proposed forms are more environmentally friendly, at low cost and maybe applied at a large scale for volume production of rice and possibly for added agricultural plants.
