Azos Beneficial Microbes are Nitrogen-Fixing Bacteria. Of all the nutrients transported to plants through the soil, nitrogen is required in the greatest amount. Because it drives chlorophyll production in the foliage and keeps plants green and efficient.
It is a fundamental part of amino acids and other compounds that assure crop health and productivity. A major part of every protein molecule and soils are often deficient of this element. However, the atmosphere is comprised of around 80% nitrogen which is in a form (N2 or Atmospheric Nitrogen) that is not conventionally available to plants.
Somewhere along with the evolutionary development of the Plant – Soil – Microbial Matrix, certain bacteria began to specialize in tasks to enhance plant growth. Which in return provided the microbes with a food source exchange opportunity. A select group of bacteria classified as “Diazotrophs” began to supply nitrogen to plants from a range of sources. Including decomposed plant litter, dead micro-organisms, and sequestration of atmospheric nitrogen. Azos belongs to the last of these groups and functions primarily as an atmospheric nitrogen converter.
Originally isolated in the Amazon Basin where there is a lack of soil, basically Azos Beneficial Microbes assists in the rapid breakdown of any vegetation by hungry microbes. And, the environmental conditions which require “Growth to Survive” is a fundamental proposition of the ecosystem.
Azos specialises in the highly-efficient conversion of the N2 form of nitrogen into plant-available NH3 ammoniacal nitrogen.
With the increased accessibility of nitrogen in the soil, Azos can catalyze a natural hormone within plants that help promote more root and vegetative growth. Azos is great for rooting out cuttings, transplants, and water-borne applications throughout various plant stages.
