Azos is an all-natural, growth promoting, Nitrogen fixing bacteria ideal
for cloning and transplanting. Azos converts nitrogen into a usable
form that is readily available to the plant. Nitrogen is critical for forming
vegetative matter and supporting abundant growth. Azos promotes
growth, while boosting natural root development.
Nitrogen-Fixing Bacteria – Of all the nutrients transported to plants
through the soil, nitrogen is required in the greatest amount. 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. It is 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.
Growth Promoting Bacteria
Nitrogen From the Air! – Somewhere along 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.
A Natural Isolate From the Amazon – Azos is a particularly-efficient
agent originally isolated in the Amazon Basin where the lack of soil,
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 specializes in
the highly-efficient conversion of the N2 form of nitrogen into plantavailable NH3 ammoniacal nitrogen. Azos is so efficient that between
50% and 70% of all the nitrogen required by most crops can be
supplied by this organism.
