Phosphorus (P) is a key element with a plethora of functions in plant growth and metabolism. Most agricultural soils contain large reserves of phosphorus, a considerable part of which has accumulated due to regular application of P fertilizers by farmers. However, most of these phosphorus reserves become rapidly unavailable to plants due to the process of phosphorus fixation. In this condition, application of efficient phosphorus solubilizing bacteria (PSB) in soil can enhance phosphorus availability to plants and prevent the accumulation of unavailable phosphorus in the soil.
Phosphate BehRoshd is a biological fertilizer formulated based on efficient phosphorus solubilizing bacteria and can be used in soils that contain sufficient phosphorus content, but suffer from phosphorus deficiency due to fixation.
Phosphate BehRoshd can be used for seed or seedling 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|
|Vegetables and tomato||Seed inoculation||Mix 0.5-1 L of BehRoshd with seeds of 1 ha.|
|Vegetables and tomato||Seedling inoculation||Add 1-2 L of BehRoshd with adequate volume of water & put the seedling roots of 1 ha. in the solution for 15 min.|
|Cereals (wheat and barley)||Seed inoculation||Mix 1-2 L of BehRoshd with 100 kg seeds.|
|Corn and cotton||Seed inoculation||Mix 0.5-1 L of BehRoshd with 30 kg seeds.|
|Rice||Inoculation of germinated seeds||Mix 1-2 L of BehRoshd with germinated seeds used for 1 ha.|
|Rice||Nursery bed inoculation||Add 1-2 L of BehRoshd with adequate volume of water & use to irrigate seedlings of 1 ha. in nursery bed.|
|Rice||Seedling inoculation||Add 2 L of BehRoshd with adequate volume of water & put the seedling roots of 1 ha. in the solution for 15 min.|
|Canola and sunflower||Seed inoculation||Mix 0.5-1 L of BehRoshd with 10 kg seeds..|
|Various crops||Top-dressing||Mix 3- 4 L of BehRoshd with adequate volume of water & release uniformly in irrigation water for 1 ha.|
If soil content is lower than 20 ppm, use the other biological product, BioPhosphate Biorun (75-300 kg per ha. depending on soil phosphorus content), at the time of sowing.
