The control of phytopathogenic fungi has been carried out by synthetic chemical fungicides for many years. However, some studies showed the potential risk they present to the environment and human health. The use of chitosan as an alternative to control phytopathogenic fungi during postharvest is important particularly in Mexico because this polymer exhibits antifungal activity against several important pathogens that affect horticultural commodities. In this review, we present the most… CONTINUE READING
