Is is a nitrogen fixing biofertilizer. Nitrogen is a major nutrient for all plants. Azospirillum lipofereum is a very useful soil and root bacterium. It is an associative symbiotic nitrogen fixing bacteria. It is found in the soil around plant roots and root surface. It also produces growth-promoting substances like indole acetic acid (IAA), gibberellins, pantothenic acid, thiamine and niacin and it promotes root proliferation and it improves the plant growth yield. It increases the rootlet density and root branching resulting in the increased uptake of mineral and water.

Azospirillum spp being free living /associative species it tries to be in root /on root and works as:
Azospirillum spp. AZO-AZ converts atmospheric nitrogen into ammonium under microaerophilic conditions at low nitrogen levels through the action of the nitrogenase complex.
Many organic acids and other sugar secreted support nitrogenase activity with Azospirillum spp.
Phytohormones like Gibberllins produced AZO-AZ leads to sheath elongation growth and also metabolize exogenous Gibberillic Acids.
AZO-AZ restricts nitrification process and thus increases N availability to the plants.
It activates many organic acids and hormones around the roots enhancing mineral uptake by plants.
Increases root hairs on each root
The offered bio fertilizer fixes 20 to 40 kg of nitrogen per acre
Helps to increase 20 to 25% crop production
Improves water and mineral absorption rate of plants
Promotes growth of root
Enhances fertility level of soil
