Vadodara, Gujarat, India
We are leaders in the market for providing best range of azospirillum culture and Rhizobium culture
The cells of Azospirillum remain in association with the roots and fix part of the atmospheric nitrogen. Azospirillum cultures are useful for the cereals and cash crops viz. Wheat, Paddy, Bajra, Jowar, Maize, Mustard, Cotton, Cumin, Banana, Sugarcane, Castor, Vegetables etc., as well as horticultural crops.The effective strain used in Azotobacter culture fixes about 15 – 20 Kg. atmospheric nitrogen per hectare.In certain condition they also exhibit anti-fungal activities and thereby fungal diseases may be controlled indirectly.
The Rhizobium culture strains are antigenically very selective and require particular host or nodulation. The surface antigen on the Rhizobial cells recognizes the binding sites (specific root exudates) on the roots of the leguminous plants. This characteristic makes them host-specific. Specific Rhizobial cell can penetrate the roots of the specific leguminous plants only and form nodules. They multiply within the nodule using the carbon source from the plant and in turn fix part of the atmospheric nitrogen to the plant. GSFC is producing different Rhizobium cultures for the different leguminous crops as under: s Groundnut, Gram, Pigeonpea, Beans, Cowpea, Urad, Mung, Pea, Soybean, Lucerne etc.
