Introduction Agri Life NITROFIX TM - AD is a biological fertilizer based on a selected strain of naturally-occurring beneficial Nitrogen-fixing symbiotic aerobic bacteria -Gluconacetobacter diazotrophicus ( MTCC 1226 ). Owing to their unique metabolism they can actively fix atmospheric nitrogen aerobically. It is found in symbiotic relationship with plants (such as sugar cane and coffee) as an endophyte and gets associated with plants by colonizing their internal tissues. Gluconacetobacter diazotrophicus is capable of surviving in high sugar concentrations. It is specifically used for sugar cane crops. Overdependence and abuse of nitrogenous fertilizers based on fossil fuel / chemical has resulted in depletion of beneficial soil microbial organisms. Cost of chemical nitrogenous fertilizers is increasing progressively and making it unaffordable to farmers. Biological nitrogen Fixation ( BNF) is proven concept for over a century and is a cost effective proposition. Agri Life NITROFIX TM - AD contains vegetative cells of Gluconacetobacter diazotrophicus . It is formulated as carrier based powder with CFU count of 5 X 10 ^ 7 / g. and as 1*10^8 CFU/ml Liquid. Agri Life NITROFIX TM - AD is approved for use in Organic Agriculture.
Crops Agri Life NITROFIX TM - GD is suitable for application on Sugar cane , Sugar Beet and Sweet Potato
