Bacterial Inoculant – improve plant nutrition, and promote your soya bean plant growth by stimulating plant hormone production
Eco-Rhiz Soya is a biofertilizer, a bacterial inoculant containing Bradyrhizobium japonicum strain WB74 for fixing nitrogen in the root nodules of soya bean (soybean).
Rhizobacteria are often referred to as plant growth-promoting rhizobacteria, or PGPRs. The Rhizobacteria promote growth by increasing the supply or availability of primary nutrients to the host plant. The Eco-Rhiz biofertilizer adds nutrients through the natural processes of nitrogen fixation.
Rhizobacteria, through, nitrogen fixation are able to convert gaseous nitrogen (N2) to ammonia (NH3) making it an available nutrient to the soya bean plant, which supports and enhances the soya bean plant growth. The soya bean plant provides the bacteria with amino acids so they do not need to assimilate ammonia. The amino acids are then shuttled back to the plant with newly fixed nitrogen.
Rhizobacteria are also able to control plant diseases that are caused by other bacteria and fungi. Disease is suppressed through induced systematic resistance and through the production of anti-fungal metabolites.
Mix one 50g Eco-Rhiz Soya sachet and one 10g Eco-T sachet in 200ml cold tap water. Mix well and apply to 50kg soybean seed.
