N-carboxymethylchitosan: Uptake and effect on chlorophyll production, water potential and biomass in tomato plants
Uptake and effects of water solutions of N-carboxymethylchitosan (NCMC) were determined in tomato plants under greenhouse conditions. Rapid uptake of NCMC occurred during the initial 12 hours of treatment and there was an increase of chlorophyl content in leaves of NCMC-treated plants. However, neither the water potential nor the biomass of test plants was influenced by NCMC treatments. © 1991, Taylor & Francis Group, LLC. All rights reserved.
