Title of the Innovation: Azotobacter Biofertilizer

Brief About Innovation

Description

Azotobacter is a free-living nitrogen-fixing bacterium, which is used as a biofertilizer in the cultivation of most crops. Utilization of this specific strain of Azotobacter chroococcum isolated from the rhizosphere of mulberry plant assures a substantial saving of nitrogen fertilizer and thus indirectly reduces the costs involved in the silkworm rearing.
