AZOS® Blue

Plant Growth Promoting Bacteria

Nitrogen is required in the greatest amount of all nutrients transported to plants through the soil. It drives chlorophyll production in the foliage and keeps plants green and growing efficiently. AZOS® (Azospirillum brasilense) is a plant growth-promoting bacteria that live symbiotically with a host plant and supplies necessary nitrogen. 

How does AZOS Blue work?


Our atmosphere is made up of 80% nitrogen. AZOS absorbs this nitrogen as N2, converts it to a form that the plant can use and supplies it to the plant efficiently. 

 

Recommended single treatment on brassicas and co-treatment with MYKOS on most cereal & vegetable crops. Can be applied through drip line, tape, and most irrigation applications.
