For nitrogen fixation
Fruit & Vegetables
Azofix® is a biological fertiliser for increasing nitrogen content in the soil. Azofix® contains non-symbiotic, free-living soil bacteria Azotobacter vinelandii, which effectively assimilates atmospheric nitrogen in the soil and extracts bioactive substances that improve the development of plants.
Long-term use leads to improved soil structure due to increased levels of polysaccharide alginates exuded by these bacterial strains. The long-term use of Azofix® will allow farmers to make optimum use of bag nitrogen fertiliser and possibly reduce use by 20 – 50% over a 5 year period. This has positive implications from a soil health, environmental and economic viewpoint.

Application Rate and Timing:
Maximise contact with soil. Soil Temperature – Minimum 5°C; Minimum pH 5.5, avoid waterlogged or excessively dry soils.
It is best to spray onto the soil after sowing or within 2 weeks after sowing. Azofix® can be sprayed onto soil before the crop canopy closes in fully but earlier is best.
Apply with crop sprayer or through slurry tank onto low covers once soil temperatures reach a minimum of 5°C in late March / early April. A second application is possible in August / September.
