Azotobacter is a free-living nitrogen fixing bacteria, which directly converts atmospheric nitrogen into plant utilizable form.  Azotobacter is available as wettable powder formulation.



Mode of Action 

Azotobacter is an aerobic, free living soil microbe which plays an important role in the Nitrogen cycle in nature.
This organism directly converts the atmospheric nitrogen, which is inaccessible to the plants, into ammonium ions
and release them to the soil. They also synthesize phytohormones like Auxins, Gibberellins and Cytokinins, thus 
stimulating plant growth.


Suitable for all crops - cereals, vegetables, plantation crops, ornamental plants and even legumes.


Azotobacter is normally used for seed treatment and direct soil application the normal dosage being 20 g/plant.

Seed treatment: Spray the seeds with a sticky / gummy solution like starch solution or jaggery solution, so that 
the surface of the seed will be wet. Take Azotobacter in a tray (@ 25 g/1 kg of seeds), add the wet seeds to this
 and gently mix by rolling the seeds in the powder so that the seeds will be coated uniformly. Dry the seeds in 
shade for 30 minutes and sow within a day. For seedlings, dip the seedlings in a slurry of Azotobacter (make a 5 -
10% slurry in sticky solution) for 5 - 10 minutes before planting.

Broadcasting / Soil Application: Soil application @ 5 to 7 kg / Ha after mixing with 250 to 375 kg of Farm Yard 
Manure (FYM). While sowing or planting mix 4kg Azotobacter with 10 kg of compost or sand and apply in the field 
evenly. For trees directly apply at root zone early in season 5 Kg / ha. For vines @ 50 gm / litre of water.

Pit Application: Apply 20 g to each pit with compost while planting.
