Abstract:

Bacterial Blight of Soybean is caused by the bacterial agent Pseudomonas syringae pv. glycinea. It attacks all of the above-ground parts of soybean. Use of agrochemicals, pesticides and phytochemicals leads the deterioration of soil health, degradation of agro-ecosystems and environment pollution. Chitosan NPs have been investigated as a carrier for active ingredient delivery for various applications due to their biocompatibility, biodegradability, high permeability, cost-effectiveness, non-toxicity and excellent film forming ability, antimicrobial and insecticidal activities. Different metal chitosan complexes have been prepared to improve antimicrobial activity of chitosan. Copper (Cu) compounds are well known for their biocide activity and it is essential for plant growth and development. Cu-chitosan NPs have remarkable potential and act as a highly effective antibacterial agent against Bacterial Blight of Soybean at the concentration of 400ppm and 1000ppm.


Keywords: Cu-chitosan, Nanoparticles, Ionic gelation technique, Bacterial blight.
