Bio-Fertilizers

Biofertilisers are top supply for reinforcing the nutrient availability in soil and plants. These are categorised on foundation of the particular nutrient availability concern. Nitrogenous Biofertilisers are able to solving atmospheric nitrogen while appropriate plants are inoculated with them. Biofertilisers are low value, effective,environmental pleasant and renewable supply of plant vitamins to complement fertilisers. Integration of chemical, natural and organic reassets of plant vitamins and their control is essential for preserving soil fitness for sustainable agriculture. The bacterial organisms gift withinside the biofertiliser both repair atmospheric nitrogen or solubilise insoluble varieties of soil vitamins. IFFCO is generating nitrogen solving biofertilisers (Rhizobium, Azotobacter, Acetobacter),Phosphate Solubilising Bacteria (PSB) for phosphorus, Potassium Mobilizing Biofertiliser (KMB) for potassium, Zinc Solubilizing Biofertiliser (ZSB) for zinc and NPK liquid consortia for nitrogen, phosphorus & potassium. To cater the developing call for of liquid biofertilisers, IFFCO has attention to supply liquid biofertilisers in place of strong service based. The major blessings of liquid biofertiliser are better efficiency, simpler application & handling, and higher shelf life.

Bio-fertilizers are used to complement chemical fertilizers as additionally to preserve soil fertility; except the following:-

  1. Bio-Fertilizers are complement to Chemical Fertilizers.
  2. Bio-Fertilizers are reasonably-priced and might lessen the value of cultivation.
  3. Fix Biological Nitrogen withinside the soil, that is easily to be had to the plant.
  4. Increase crop yield through 4-5% on an average.
  5. Improve soil houses and preserve soil fertility.
  6. Provides plant nutrient at low value and beneficial for the consecutive plants.

Phosphate Solubilising Micro Organism

Several soil micro organism and fungi own the capacity to deliver insoluble phosphates into soluble bureaucracy with the aid of using secreting natural acids. They may be carried out to and advocated for all plants


Rhizobium

It is the most important nitrogen fixing organism. It live symbiotically in the root nodules of leguminous plants and supply nitrogen to the plant through nitrogen fixation. Besides, supplying nitrogen to the crop, nitrogen fixed by legume - Rhizobia association would also leave residual nitrogen for the succeeding crops. The beneficiary crops are Groundnut, Soybean, Red-gram, Green-gram, Black-gram, Lentil, Cow pea, Bengal-gram and Fodder legumes.


Azotobacter

It is non symbiotic nitrogen fixing bacteria recommended for non leguminous crops like Paddy, Wheat, Millets, Cotton, Tomato, Cabbage, Mustard, Safflower and Sunflower. The Azotobacter performs well if the soil organic matter content is high.


Acetobacter

It is a symbiotic micro organism able to solving atmospheric nitrogen with the aid of using residing withinside the sugar plant. They are observed in all elements of plant body. It is appropriate for sugarcane cultivation.


Potassium Mobilizing Biofertiliser (KMB)

Potassium (K) availability in soil is likewise encouraged with the aid of using with the aid of using microbial sports withinside the rhizosphere which releases K from the non-exchangeable reserve. These microorganisms are normally called potassium solubilizing micro organism or potassium dissolving micro organism. The maximum critical potassium solubilising micro organism are silicate micro organism together with Bacillus mucilaginous, B. edaphicus, B. glucanolyticus and B. circulans.


Zinc Solubilizing Biofertiliser (ZSB)

It is a symbiotic micro organism able to solving atmospheric nitrogen with the aid of using residing withinside the sugar plant. They are observed in all elements of plant body. It is appropriate for sugarcane cultivation.


Zinc Solubilizing Biofertiliser (ZSB)

Some microbes have performance to solubilize zinc from the insoluble shape with the aid of using secretion of a few natural acids, and those are called zinc solubilizing micro organism are especially belongs to genus of Bacillus.


NPK Liquid Consortia

Consortium of Rhizobium, Azotobacter and Acetobacter, PSB and KMB is ready for Nitrogen, Phosphorus and potassium to the plants.
