Phospho-bio-com: Phosphate solubilizing bacterium

Phospho-bio-com: Phosphate solubilizing bacterium

Phospho-Bio-Com is produced from Phospahte Solubilizing Bacterium (PSB).

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: Phosphate Solubilization takes place through various micrbial processes/mechanisms. Inorganic P is solubilized by the action of organic and inorganic acids secreted by PSB. Inorganic acids produced by PSB solubilize insoluble phosphates by lowering the pH. Inorganic acids can also solubilize phosphate but they are less effective compared to organic acids at the same pH

Mineralization of organic P
Prganic P may constitute 4-90% of total soil P. Alkaline and acid phosphatases use organic phosphate as a substrate to convert it into inorganic form. Release of organic anions, and production of siderophores and acid phosphates by plant roots/microbes or alkaline phosphatase enzymes hydrolyze the soil organic P or split P from organic residues.

Method of Application:

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

Root dipping: The root of seedings should be treated with 1% solution (10ml/litre) of Phospho-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 Phospho-Bio-com is recommended per acre. Mix the desired volume with 50-100 kg of farmyard manure or sand and broadcast in the field. Phopho-Bio-com can also be applied through drip irrigation.
