To be negotiated Online Customization Acetobacter diazotrophicus is a biological fertilizer strain of naturally-occurring beneficial Nitrogen-fixing symbiotic aerobic bacteria -Acetobacter diazotrophicus Owing to their unique metabolism they can actively fix atmospheric nitrogen aerobically. It is specifically used for sugar cane crops. Cost of chemical nitrogenous fertilizers is increasing progressively and making it unaffordable to farmers. Biological nitrogen Fixation BNF is proven concept for over a century and is a cost effective proposition. Nitrogen cannot be absorbed by the plants owing to the strong triple bonds between the nitrogen atoms making it inert and therefore non assimable by plants.

Acetobacter aceti; Acetobacter syzygii; Acetobacter tropicalis; Acetobacter sp. NCBI: Taxonomy Genome Description and Significance Acetobacter bacteria, such as Acetobacter diazotrophicus that can be isolated from coffee plants or sugarcane, are acid-producing, nitrogen-fixing bacteria. In fact, the A. Nitrogen-fixing bacteria are important in modern agriculture - exploiting these bacteria would decrease the present dependency on nitrogen fertilizers, which would have positive results for the ecosystem and the health of humans and other animals.

Other strains can be found in samples from Japanese rice vinegar komesu or unpolished rice vinegar kurosu. Genome Structure Acetobacter bacterial genomes currently have yet to be sequenced. Cell Structure and Metabolism Acetobacter is an obligatory aerobic, nitrogen-fixing bacteria that is known for producing acid as a result of metabolic processes. While all nitrogen-fixing bacteria contain nitrogenase in order to utilize atmospheric nitrogen gas as a source for metabolic biosynthesis, different nitrogen-fixing microorganisms protect the oxygen-sensitive microorgansims from oxygen exposure in different ways.

It needs oxygen for the production of large quantities of ATP required for nitrogen fixation; however, little is known about the mechanism or system that protects the nitrogenase under aerobic conditions. Ecology Electron micrograph of a sugarcane stem with Acetobacter diazotrophicus colonization. From The University of Arizona Acetobacter bacteria can be found in symbiotic relationships with many different plants, such as sugarcane and coffee plants, as well as in fermenting vinegar.

Endophytes are prokaryotes that associate with plants by colonizing their internal tissues. Many of these bacteria have been observed to promote plant growth, but the mechanisms behind this relationship are not yet fully understood.

Below is a table of places where A. Sugarcane root, root hair, stem, leaf Cameroon grass.



They accelerate certain microbial processes in the soil which augment the extent of availability of nutrients in a form easily assimilated by plants. Very often microorganisms are not as efficient in natural surroundings as one would expect them to be and therefore artificially multiplied cultures of efficient selected microorganisms play a vital role in accelerating the microbial processes in soil. Use of biofertilizers is one of the important components of integrated nutrient management, as they are cost effective and renewable source of plant nutrients to supplement the chemical fertilizers for sustainable agriculture. Several microorganisms and their association with crop plants are being exploited in the production of biofertilizers. Mainly this bacterium is commercialized for sugarcane crop. This bacteria first reported in brazil where the farmers cultivate sugarcane in very poor sub-soil fertilized with Phosphate, Potassium and micro elements alone, could produce yield for three consecutive harvests, without any nitrogen fertilizer.



The packing is moisture proof and well tolerates transportation and handling. Liquid formulation is available in one lr HDPE containers and in lr barrels. Description: Glucanoacetobacter is known as black urea since it provides higer nitrogen requirement like urea. Glucanoacetobacter highly suitable for sugarcane crop. This bio inoculant fixes nitrogen in roots, stems and leaves of sugarcane.
