ODC-50 BIO-NITROBIUM is a liquid formulation containing strains of Rhizobium. The bacteria in their dormant forms and is suspended in liquid based formulation. Cells of BIO - NITROBIUM enter in the roots of leguminous plants and forms nodules in the roots. In the nodules nitrogen gas is converted to ammonia, which is directly taken up by the plants like green gram, black gram, cowpea, gram, peas, , soybean, groundnut and beans.

MODE OF ACTION :

  • The dormant forms of Rhizobium on reaching the soil, germinate to produce metabolically active cells. These cells grow and enter root hairs of leguminous plants, multiply and form nodules. In the nodules these cells converts non available (N ) nitrogen into ammonia (NH ) by utilizing the organic carbon from the plant. 2 3 The ammoniacal nitrogen is directly taken up plants.

Application Process

  • Soil application Use 250ml diluted with 100 lit of water. Spread this emulsion evenly in the elds
  • Soil broadcasting Mix 250 ml with 50kg of cow dung. Add water to make the mixture damp and cover it with a gunny porous. Mixing should be done in shade. After 12 hours broadcast the mixture over 1 acre [0.4 ha]
  • Can be used with drip irrigation too

EFFECTS OF BIO-NITROBIUM ON PLANTS :

Improves the uptake of nutrients. Vigorous root growth Early plant stand and early plant maturity. Immunity against soil borne fungal infection

PRODUCT ADVANTAGES :

It provides 20-35 kg of biologically xed nitrogen per hectare to each crop. Leaves a small quantity of such xed nitrogen to succeeding crop. Saves 50-55 kg of urea per hectare. Improves the nutrient use efciency. Being environment friendly, neither disturb ecological balance nor pollute the environment Cheap as compared to chemical fertilizer. Enriches soil micro-ora.

HANDLING INFORMATION :

The product is non-toxic to animals, plants or human beings. It does not leave any harmful residues. BIO-NITROBIUM can be used for organic farming.

packing : 100ml/ 500ml in liquid and 500gm/ 1000gm in powder
