Bio Fertilizers

K-sol ( Potash Mobilizing Bacteria)

Potassium is one of the essential nutrients required for plant growth. K-solcontains efficient strain of frateuria aurantia, which dissolve insoluble form of potash in soil to make it available to plants. Benefits:
  • It can increases crop yield by 17-20%.
  • It helps in food synthesis, flower formation, fruit setting and seed seetting.
  • Encourages early root development which hastens the maturity and there by increses the yield.

Rhizogreen

Rhizogreen is a biological N supplimenter contains efficient strain of Rhizobium. It is symbiotic nitrogen fixing bacterium living in association with leguminous crops and assimilates atmospheric nitrogen and fixes in the root nodules.

Role of Rhizogreen
Rhizogreen normally enters into root hairs of plant, multiply there and produces nodules and fixes atmospheric nitrogen.
Leguminous plants take the nitrogen fixed by Rhizogreen and photosynthate product to Rhizobium.

The root secretions from the leguminous plants and the biological material released from the decomposed nodule, enriches the fertility status of soil.

It can fix 50-100Kg of nitrogenper hectare in one crop season and can leave behind substantial quantities of nitrogen for succeeding crop. It can increase yield from 15-20%.

Zinc

Zinc is one of the essential nutrients required for plant growth.
Zings contains efficient strain of Zinc soubilizing bacteria, which dissolve insoluble form of Zinc in soil to make it available to plant.

Importance of Zinc
In production of auxin, an essential plant growth hormone
Regulates starch formation and proper root development.
In formation of chlorophyll and carbohydrates.
Enable plants to withstand lower air temperature.
Helps in the biosynthesis of cytochrome-a pigment and maintains plasma membrane integrity and helps synthesis of leaf cuticle.

Mode of action
Zinc solubilizing bacterium multiplies, secrete organic acids and helps to solublize insoluble and chelated zinc fixed in the soil. This mobilized zinc is easily available to plants.

Recommended crops
Rice, Ragi, Maize, Sorghum, Areca nut, Sugarcane, Millets,Coconut, Cocoa,Banana,Cardamom,Pepper, Ginger,Coffee, Rubber,Tea, Vanilla, Orange,Amla,Turmeric and all agricultural and horticultural crops.

Method of application
Seed treatment For Paddy 1 Kg/acre, other crops 1/2 Kg/acre. Mix required quantity of inoculant with 250ml of cool rice kanji and make a slurry. Treat the seeds sufficient for an acre. Dry in shade for 30mins and sow.
Seedling treatment Mix 2Kg Zings in 50lit of water and dip the roots for 15mins before transplanting.
Main field application Mix 5Kg of Zings in 100Kg of well composted farmyard manure and broadcast in one acre of main field, just before transplanting.

Azogreen

Azogreen is a bio-fertilizer for N supplementation contains an efficient strain of azospirillum. Azospirillum is nitrogen fixing free-living bacterium. It is found in the soil around the plant roots and root surface. -Nitrogen is the major element present in the atmosphere. But it is present in unavailable form. This has to be made available to the plants for their basic physiological activities. Features
  • Promotes early tillering and reproductive growth and increases the grain-filling rate
  • it can fix 30-50kg of nitrogen per hectre in one-crop sesond and can leave behind substantial quantities of nitrogen in the soil for succeeding crop
  • increases the root density and root branching resulting in the incrased uptake of minerals and water
Recommended crops Rice, ragi, maize, sorghum, areca nut, sugarcane, millet, coconut, cotton, cocoa, banana, cardamom, pepper, ginger, coffee, rubber, tea, vanilla, orange, amla, turmeric and all agricultural and horticultural crops. Application
  • Transplanted crops: -through seed, seedling root dip and soil application in nursery and main field.
  • Direct sown crops:-through seed treatment
  • Plantation crops: -25-50gm/plant. Before application crack top soil and apply around root zone and adequate moisture should be maintained.

Nitrogreen

Nitrogreen contains efficient strains of Azotobacter which is a free living associative symbiotic nitrogen fixing bacteria. It has high nitrogen fixing potential in acidic soil that is in semi dry loamy and sandy soils.

Features

  • Promotes early tillering and reproductive growth and increases the grain-filling rate
  • it can fix 30-50kg of nitrogen per hectre in one-crop sesond and can leave behind substantial quantities of nitrogen in the soil for succeeding crop
  • increases the root density and root branching resulting in the incrased uptake of minerals and water

Recommended crops
Rice, ragi, maize, sorghum, areca nut, sugarcane, millet, coconut, cotton, cocoa, banana, cardamom, pepper, ginger, coffee, rubber, tea, vanilla, orange, amla, turmeric and all agricultural and horticultural crops.

Application

  • Transplanted crops:
    -through seed, seedling root dip and soil application in nursery and main field.
  • Direct sown crops:
    -through seed treatment

    -25-50gm/plant. Before application crack top soil and apply around root zone and adequate moisture should be maintained.

Nutrich

Nutrich is a vam fungi (vesicular arbuscular mychorrhizae). The symbiotic association between plant roots and fungnal mycelia is termed as mycorrhizae. It acts as an extension of root absorbing surface. These fungi can inprove the plant growth through increased nutrient uptake of phosphorus, sulphur, calcium and zinc.

Recommended crops
pepper, cardamom, ragi, citrus, clove, tea, rubber, mango, green house crops, and other perennial crops.
Mode of Action : Uptake of nutrients

Ø The P ions are readily absorbed on clay complexes and diffuse slowly in the soil so that a depletion zone quickly develops around the actively absorbing rootlets.

Ø Fungal hyphae can explore the soil beyond the depletion zone and transport phosphate back into the root.

Ø The phosphate is translocated into the mycelium in the root and is released for use by plants.

Ø Further these fungi are known to enhance resistance to diseases and help the host plant to take up water better under moisture stress condition.

Ø VAM fungi transports N,K,Ca,Mg along the fungal in a manner similar to phosphorus.

Benefits:

Ø Increase nutrient and water uptake
Ø Improve soil and plant ecosystem

Ø Increase plant growth and establishment

Ø Increase yield

Ø Reduces transplant stress and plant loss

Ø Improves soil structure and porosity

Ø Reduces chemical fertilizers

Ø Improves drough tolerance

Ø Improves resistance to soil borne pathogens like Phythium sp,Fusarium Sp,Rhizoctonia sp,Phytopthroa etc.

Method of application
Nursery:In nurseries nutrich (VAM) should be applied 2-3 cm below the top soil at the time of sowing.

Existing plant: For existing crops 20-200 gm inoculam is required depending on plant size. Before application crack the topsoil and maintain enough moisture and organic matter.

Infective propagules : 1.8 x 104 IP /g of sample

P-SOL

P-SOL contains insoluble phosphate solublizing bacteria-PSB (phosphobacteria), this phosphobacteria solublizes insoluble phosphates in soils and make it available to plant

Benefits

  • It can increases the crop yield by 17-20%.
  • p-sol (phosphobacteria) produces amino acids, vitamins and plant growth promoting substances like IAA, GA which help in better plant growth.
  • This phosphate solubilizing bacteria helps in food synthesis, flower formation, fruit setting and seed setting.
  • Phosphobacteria is absolutely essential for cell reproduction and growth of root and shoot.
  • Inoculation of P-SOL (phosphate solubilizing bacteria) into soil produces organic acids which help in effectivesolubilization of phosphates.

Recommended crops
rice, maize, sorghum, arecanut, sugarcane, millets, coconut, cotton, cocoa, banana, cardamom, pepper, coffee, rubber, tea, vanilla, orange, amla, turmeric, green house crops and all agricultural and horticultural crops.

  • In the transplanted crops P-SOL (phosphobacteria) inoculated through seed, seedling root dip and soil application in nursery and main field.
  • In Direct sown crops P-SOL (phosphobacteria) applied through seed treatment.
  • In Plantation crops : 25-50gm/plant. Before application crack top soil and apply around root zone and adequate moisture should be maintained.
