- It is a very effective bio fertilizer for non-leguminous crops as it fixes atmospheric nitrogen into soil, avoids leaching losses of N and makes it available to plants.
- It produces growth promoting substances such as IAA, GA, vitamins and cytokinins which supports plant growth. It also exhibits antifungal property which checks the growth of disease causing fungi.
- It has synergistic effect on other beneficial organisms. It fixes about 15-20Kg Per/Acre of atmospheric nitrogen and saves up to 25% cost of nitrogenous fertilizers.
- It is compatible with other bio fertilizers.
