AZOTOBACTER

MBF Azotobacter is biofertilizer that contains colonies of Azotobacter species. Azotobacter fix the atomospheric. nitrogen & makes it available to plants in asymbiotic manner. This species is generally present in soil near the roots. of plants. Application of Azotobacter increases the yield of crop production.

  • Improve plant growth.
  • Increases rate of atmospheric nitrogen fixation.
  • Improve soil fertility.

Compatible with MBF Rhizobium, MBF Acetobacter, MBF Biophorce No.1 and other organic fertilizers.

Recommended Crops : Wheat, Rice, Jawar, Bajra, Maize, Paddy, Cotton, Sugarcane, Vegetables, Fruits and Ornamental plants.

For Seed Treatment: 750 gm MBF Azotobacter mix with sufficient amount of water and make mixture. Coat this mixture on 30-40 kg seed. Avoid direct exposure to sunlight. After drying sow the seed within 24 hrs.

For Soil Application: Use 3 kg Azotobacter for one acre land.

The beneficial influence of Azotobacter on plant growth is attributed to a number of factors. These being:

DIRECT MECHANISM OF PLANT GROWTH IMPROVEMENT.

  • Biological nitrogen fixation under free-living conditions.
  • Productions of phytohormones like indole 3-acetic acid, gibberellin-like substances and cytokinins.
  • Solubilization of insoluble phosphater.

INDIRECT MECHANISM OF PLANT GROWTH IMPROVEMENT BY BIOCONTROL

Antagonist of against phytopathogens by

  • Production of siderophores
  • Production of antifungal compounds
  • Induction of defense enzymes
