I think this could be very valuable. You can look at the research on chitin and the effects it has on plants as an immune elicitor. Another effect is that adding it to soil stimulates chitin digesting bacteria, as those populations build, that will also feed on the pupae, larvae, and eggs of many insects overwintering in soil, and can markedly reduce insect challenges.
