Rom- Azospirillum is a beneficial soil borne bacterium capable of fixing considerable quantity of nitrogen in soil. This bacterium when applied to soil multiplies in billions and absorbs atmospheric nitrogen and fixes it in the root zone of soil. While addition of urea gives readily available form of nitrogan to the plant, Azospirillum slowly improves soil nitrogen status by fixing atmospheric nitrogen. Addition of well-decomposed organic manure is very important for multiplication of Azospirillum. Repeated addition of Azospirillum, will help to reduce application of nitrogenous fertilizers.
Rom- Azospirillum has a bacterial count of not less than 2x109 / g / ml and can be used for all crops.
Dosage: Five kg per acre in adequate quantity of water or applied mixed with small quantity of well decomposed organic manure.
