Azos Azospirullium

  Azospirillum

An effective nitrogen-fixing product useful in all crops. Azospirillum is an Associative symbiotic Nitrogen fixing bacteria. It fixes atmospheric nitrogen into the soil and thus making available this essential nitrogen source to the plants. It is tolerant to low pH & high salt. Specially used for crops like Sugarcane, Maize, Wheat, Rice, Barley, All Vegetable, Fruits, Horticultural crops etc.Beneficial aspects:

  • Reduces expenditure on chemical fertilizers up to 30%.
  • Increase crop yield over 25%.
  • Increases soil microbial activity.
  • Enhances overall soil fertility.
  • Produces various growth -promoting substances, which ultimately increase seed germination, plant stand and pant vigor.

Mode of action:

When Azospirillum is applied to the soil the dormant cell get activated and start to divide & redivide by using the Carbon sources available in the root exudates & rhizopshere. In many plants it attaches itself to the root & uses the carbon sources from the root exudates therefore this is described as a associative N-fixing bacterium, some times it enters into the internal cortical tissues and becomes endophytic. It produces growth promoting substances like Indol Acetic Acid (IAA), Gibberellins & promotes root proliferation.

The ammonium ion that is produced by this reaction is in the form of nitrogen that is used by living systems in the synthesis of many bio-organic compounds.
