Azo-bio-com: Azospirillum

Azo-bio-com: Azospirillum

Azo-Bio-com is produced from Azospirillum, a free-living soil bacterium that has the ability to affect the growth of numerous agricultural crops worldwide through the excretion of various hormones and the bacteria’s ability of nitrogen fixation.

Crops: Banana, Coconut, Turmeric, Sugarcane, Cotton, Paddy, Potato, Cauliflower, Cabbage, Cashew, Beetroot, Carrot, Tea, Coffee, Groundnut, Brinjal, Tomato, Bhendi, Citrus, Onion, Oil seed plants, Flowers, Fruiting plants and trees, Cardamom, Pepper, Blackgram, Greengram, Redgram, Grains etc.

Mode of Action: Azospirillum is capable of promoting growth of plants through the secretion of phytohormones, the most common being Indole Acetic Acid (IAA). IAA along with various other phytohormones alters the metabolism and the morphology of the plant room system in favor of better mineral and water adsorption. Azospirillum is capable of fixing nitrogen through assimilation of ammonium and the activity of nitrogenase.

Seed Treatment: Mix 10 ml of Azo-Bio-com with 1 kg of seeds and moisturize with cooled rice gruel or water and leave it for 30 minutes and sow the seeds.

Root dipping: The root of seedlings should be treated with 1 % solution (10ml/litre) of Azo-Bio-com for at least 10 minutes before plantation. Prolonged dipping or soaking is acceptable and it will enhance the efficiency.

Soil application: 1 litre of Azo-Bio-com is recommended per acre. Mix the desired volume with 50 – 100 kg of farmyard manure or sand and broadcast it in the field.  Azo-Bio-com can also be applied through drip irrigation.
