Azosprillum is abeneficial soil-borne bacterium capable of fixing a considerable quantity ofnitrogen in the soil. This bacterium when applied to soil multiplies in billionsand absorbs atmospheric nitrogen and fixes it in the root zone of the soil. While the addition of urea gives the readily available form of nitrogen to the plant, Azosprillumslowly improves soil nitrogen status by fixing atmospheric nitrogen. Additionof well-decomposed organic manure is very important for multiplication of Azosprillum.Repeated addition of Azosprillum, will help to reduce application ofnitrogenous fertilizers.
Azosprillum has abacterial count of not less than 2x109 / g / ml and can be used for allcrops.
