Ya'll know of any suppliers of azotobacter and/or azospirillum in
Ya'll know of any university researchers, industry researchers,
or farmers using these biological inoculants for seed inoculation to
function as nitrogen fixers, plant growth promoting rhizobacteria,
or biological disease control?
As an aside, azotobacter and azospirillum are used in India to inoculate
vermicompost 10-12 days prior to harvest, along with phosphorus
solublizing bacteria, to create a vermicompost biofertilizer which is applied
at a rate of 2 tons per acres. That work is underway by INORA - Institute
of Natural Organic Agriculture in Pune, a leading non-profit for organic
agriculture in India which has helped nearly 1,000 small farmers establish
wormeries in the last two years for the production of vermicompost
biofertilizers to enhance soil quality and productivity. The mixture is 50%
cow dung and 50% biomass such as grass and fodder intentionally planted
in under-utilized spaces such as fence rows and bunds. The worms are African
red worms and common red worms. The wormeries are 80 foot long shade
houses constructed from bamboo poles and covered with thatch.
Several farmers are looking for commercial sources of these biological
inoculants, along with any successful usage in agriculture in North America.
