Azospirillum, nitrogen fixing bacteria is a non-symbiotic microaerophilic nitrogen fixer in association with the roots of sorghum, maize, rice, wheat, millet and cotton etc. Azospirillum strains are known for their production of plant growth hormones that enhance root systems, as well as, their ability to fix nitrogen. To ensure adequate plant growth, it is important to inoculate seed at planting with the correct strain of Azospirillum. INOCULATING PLANTS WITH AZOSPIRILLIUM CAN ACHIEVE SUBSTANTIAL INCREASES IN SEED GERMINATION, GRAIN AND BIOMASS YIELD, NITROGEN FIXATION AND POST-CROP SOIL NITRATE LEVELS FOR CROP ROTATION BENEFITS This product contains 400 million CFU of live Azospirillium strains per gram of formulation to ensure high levels of nitrogen fixation.
