Azosprillium is an associated aerophilic micro-organism which fixes the atmospheric nitrogen and makes it available to the plants. Azospi culture also synthesize some amount of active substances like vitamins, IAA, Gibberellins and Nicotinic acid which helps in seed germination, early emergence and better root growth and development. Azosprillium colonization is mainly on the root surface, enhance mineral and water uptake. They also conserve water in field.

Benefits to the crop
It fixes 20 – 40 kg Nitrogen /Ha in non-leguminous plants. Increase ability by inducing abundant roots under upland condition, stimulates plant growth. Increase in numbers and length of lateral roots, root area. More plant growth, improvement in water and mineral uptake and water conservation in the field.
