Silicate Solubilising Bacteria (SSBAC)

Introduction :

SSBAC is a biological fertilizer based on a selected strain of naturally-occurring beneficial bacteria.It contains Bacillus spp. bacteria which solubilizing silica and provide the plant with strength to tolerate biotic and abiotic stresses and improves its ressistance to pest and disease attack.

Mode of Action :

Metabolite production : SSBAC containing the microbe produces organic acids as part of its metabolism. They supply H+ ions to the medium and promote hydrolysis and the organic acids like citric acid, oxalic acid, keto acids and hydroxy carbolic acids which form complexes with cations and make the silica available to the plants.
SSBAC is especialy recommended for the crops Cereals, jowar, Bajari, Maize, Vegetables, Fruits, Spices, Oil Seed Crops, Tea, Coffee etc.

Method of application :

Liquid :Mix 500ml with 5kg farm yard manure/compost and broadcast uniformaly in one acre field.
Powder :Mix 3-5kg/acre of SSb with compost and apply to an acre of soil.

Shelf Life :

SSBAC is stable for a period of 12 months from the date of manufacturing.
