Biofarm (for farming)

Nitrogen (N) is a paramount element for plant growth and productivity, as it is a core component of many plant structures such as amino acids, nucleic acid, and chlorophyll. Despite, nitrogen being one of the most abundant elements on earth, nitrogen deficiency is among the most common nutritional problems affecting plants worldwide. This is because the nitrogen from atmosphere cannot be used directly by plants. Several plant growth promoting rhizobacteria (PGPRs) are known to actively contribute to nitrogen fixation beside other beneficial functions such as phytohormone production, phosphate solubilization, iron chlation, suppression of plant pathogenic organisms, and induction of resistance in host plants against plant pathogens and abiotic stresses.

Biofarm is a biological fertilizer formulated based on several nitrogen fixing PGPRs, such as Azospirillum and Pseudomonas (2 × 107 CFU per mL). It is expected to improve plant growth and yield, and decrease the incidence of soil-borne plant diseases.

  • Contributing towards reduction of the use of chemical N fertilizers in agriculture.
  • Decreasing the risk of above- and belowground water contamination with nitrates.
  • Improving soil structure and biodiversity with respect to biological activity of bacteria.
  • Providing a combination of benefits ranging from nutrient availability to increasing plant defense against abiotic and biotic stressful agents.

Biofarm can be used for seed, seedling, or tuber inoculation at the time of sowing or along with irrigation water (top-dressing) in different growth stages of field and greenhouse crops.

Target crop Application method How to use
