PREMIUM AZOTO (AZOTOBACTER)
Technical Content : Azotobacter spp.
CFU – 1 x 108 per ml, 5 x 107 per gm
Nitrogen For All Crops
- Premium Azoto fixes the atmospheric nitrogen and reduces the amount of chemical fertilizer (Urea).
- It also improves soil fertility and inhibits the growth of harmful pathogens and results in lowering the incidence of pathgens.
Mode of action:
Azotobacter spp. is the free living nitrogen fixing aerobic bacterium. Azotobacter spp. released ammonia into the soil and improve soil fertility, Production of phyto hormones like IAA, Gibberillins and Cytokinins. Production of some antifungal substances which inhibits the growth of soil harmful fungi like Alternaria, Fusarium, Rhizoctonia, Selerotia curvularia and Helminthosporium and resulted in lowering the disease incidence. Antagonism against phytopathogens by production of siderophore, antifungal compounds and induction of different enzymes.
Wheat, Paddy, Maize, Cotton, Potato, Millets, Vegetables, Grapes, Banana, Pomegranate, Oranges, Plantation crops, Fiber and Oil producing crops.
Benefits to the crop:
- Improve seed germination percentage
- Increase number & length of shoot and root
- Help to fix nitrogen from atmosphere in continuous process
- Reduction in disease incidence
- More yield (25% to 30% in wheat, finger millets)
- Improve post-harvest seed quality in terms of germination
- Reduce 20% to 25 % Nitrogenous fertilizer requirements.
