Acetobacter (Glucanoacetobacter) is nitrogen fixing bio inoculant exclusively meant for sugarcane. Vox Agro is capable to produce ten tonnes of technical grade Glucanoacetobacter diazotrophicus per day. This product is also available in combination with Phosphobacteria as combined formulation.
Brand name: VOX Sugarmax
Acetobacter is an obligatory aerobic, nitrogen-fixing bacteria that is known for producing acid as a result of metabolic processes. G. diazotrophicus has been called interesting because it carries out nitrogen fixation under aerobic conditions. G. diazotrophicus is a plant endophyte and has been said to be capable of excreting about half of its fixed nitrogen in a form that plants can use. Acetobacter bacteria is found in symbiotic relationships with many different plants, such as sugarcane and coffee plants as endophytes that associate with plants by colonizing their internal tissues. Gucanoacetobacter is the only bio inoculant able to survive in high sugar concentration conditions (able to survive in 10% sugar concentrations).
The product is available as liquid formulation and lignite carrier based formulation.
- Glucanoacetobacter diazotrophicus 1% (w/w)
- Sticking agent – CMC – 1%.
- Inactive Ingredients 98.0% (w/w) (Moisture 35%, lignite 63%)
Carrier based formulation is available in attractive one kg laminated poly pouches. The packing is moisture proof and well tolerates transportation and handling. The product is also supplied in bulk packing of 50kg/25 kg sizes in HDPE bags.
Liquid formulation is available in one lr HDPE containers and in 200 lr barrels.
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. It solublizes insoluble phosphorus to plants. This bio inoculant promotes sugarcane growth abundantly and meets up to 80% of sugarcane nitrogen requirement. This bio inoculant also secretes some growth promoting substances like IAA and gibberellins. Glucanoacetobacterpromotes a minimum of 10% of cane yield and a minimum increase of sugar recovery by 0.5%.This bio inoculant can be used only in sugar containing plants like sugarcane, sweet sorghum and not suitable for other crops.
Method of application:
The mixture of Glucanoacetobacter diazotrophicus (Vox Sugarmax) and phosphate solublizing bacteria (Vox Phosphomax) can be used for Sugarcane, Sweet potato, Tea, Cofee, Pineapple, Mango and Banana.
For one acre, Mix about 2.5 kgs of Glucanoacetobacter inoculant with 200 liters of wate, soak the setts in the mixture for 10 minutes and use for planting.
For one acre, Mix about 5 kgs of Glucanoacetobacter bio inoculant with 100 kgs of Farm Yard Manure and broad cast in the field (within three months after planting sugar cane).
For liquid inoculants:
Soil application Mix 3 Lrs of Vox Sugarmax liquid formulation with 100 kgs of organic manure, keep the mixture under shade for one week and apply to the soil.
Drip irrigation Mix about one lr of Vox Sugarmax liquid formulation in 100 litrs of chemicals free, good quality water. Filter the mixture with a pure cloth; use the filtered solution in drip irrigation for one acre.
