  author={El-sayed and Mahdy},
In our study two different chitosan with low and high molecular weight at different dilutions i.e. standard, 1:1, 1:2, 1:3, 1:4, 1:5 and 1:10 were evaluated against root-knot nematode, Meloidogyne javanica in vitro and in vivo under greenhouse conditions. In vitro results revealed that both chitosan with all used concentrations significantly reduced the egg hatching when compared to control. No hatched eggs were shown with the standard concentration of both chitosan. The high molecular weight… 


Chitosan, Antifungal Product against Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. albedinis and Elicitor of Defence Reactions in Date Palm Roots
Chitosan could be used to protect date palm against this vascular disease and led to an accumulation of non-constitutive hydroxycinnamic acid derivatives, known to be of great importance in date palm resistance to Bayoud.
Effects of Chitin and Chitosan on the Incidence and Severity of Fusarium Yellows of Celery.
Disease incidence and severity were significantly reduced by pre-plant chitin amendments to soil, and chitosan applied as a root dip alone did not reduce disease incidence but significantly reduced disease severity when used with a tolerant celery cultivar.
Effect of the molecular weight of chitosan on its antiviral activity in plants
It was shown that the treatments of bean plants with these fractions (chitosan concentration, 10 or 100 μg/ml) inhibited virus accumulation and systemic propagation, and the degree of chitOSan-induced antiviral resistance increased as the molecular weight of chITosan decreased.
Antibacterial activity of shrimp chitosan against Escherichia coli.
The hypothesis that the mechanism of chitosan antibacterial action involves a cross-linkage between the polycations of ch itosan and the anions on the bacterial surface that changes the membrane permeability is supported.
Chitosan in Plant Protection
This review recapitulates the properties and uses of chitin, chitosan, and their derivatives, and will focus on their applications and mechanisms of action during plant-pathogen interactions.
