Azos from xtreme gardening is a Nitrogen-Fixing Bacteria - nitrogen is required in the greatest amounts for healthy growth. It drives chlorophyll production in the foliage and keeps plants green and efficient. It is a fundamental part of amino acids and other compounds that assure crop health and productivity. It is a major part of every protein molecule and soils are often deficient of this element. However the atmosphere is comprised of around 80% nitrogen which is in a form (N2 or atmospheric nitrogen) that is not conventionally available to plants – Azos captures this atmospheric nitrogen and is able to process it into ammonia nitrate which can then be taken up by plant roots.
Nitrogen From the Air! - Somewhere along the evolutionary development of the "Plant - Soil - Microbial Matrix", certain bacteria began to specialize in tasks to enhance plant growth, which in return provided the microbes with a food source exchange opportunity as the plants release ‘exudates’ into the soil, feeding the surrounding rhizosphere. A select group of bacteria classified as "Diazotrophs" began to supply nitrogen to plants from a range of sources, including decomposed plant litter, dead micro-organisms, and sequestration of atmospheric nitrogen. Azos belongs to the last of these groups and functions primarily as an atmospheric nitrogen converter.
A Natural Isolate from the Amazon - Azos is a particularly-efficient, fast colonising agent originally isolated in the Amazon Basin where the lack of soil, the rapid breakdown of any vegetation by hungry microbes, and the environmental conditions which require "Growth to Survive" is a fundamental proposition of the ecosystem, proving Azos robust nature. Azos specializes in the highly-efficient conversion of the N2 form of nitrogen into plant-available NH3 ammoniacal nitrogen.
Azos is so efficient that between 50% and 70% of all the nitrogen required by most crops can be supplied by this organism.
Azos bacteria are also able to synthesize hormones and auxins to promote cell division, increasing growth rates leading to spectacular overall root and plant growth. If the organic gardening suites your style of growing, xtreme gardening range of products will fall perfectly into your inventory.
How to use
Azos will fully dissolve in water but may require stirring to do so.
You can use Azos in any type of system with or without any substrate – and since azos completely dissolves in water you can even use it in aeroponic systems that use a spray head to deliver nutrients to plant roots.
Azos is best used during transplant but the nitrogen fixing effects of the beneficial bacteria can aid the plant at any time throughout vegetative growth due to the higher ratio of nitrogen required by plants during veg. Just water it into your medium following the dosage rates on the packaging and sit back to enjoy the benefits.
Make sure you don’t get azos treated water onto the leaves of plants as some white staining may occur that looks like powdery mildew. It wont harm your plants but could scare a keen gardener. If droplets sit on top of leaves they can focus the light from your HID lighting which could cause burns.
