Establishing symbiotic nitrogen fixation in cereals and other non-legume crops: The Greener Nitrogen Revolution.
A paper was published in Agriculture and Food Security on Establishing symbiotic nitrogen fixation in cereals and other non-legume crops: The Greener Nitrogen Revolution. The authors were Dr David Dent CTO Azotic Technologies) and Professor Edward Cocking FRS (University of Nottingham).
This highlights the development of a new natural nitrogen fixing bacterium Gluconacetobacter diazotrophicus which is a food grade bacterium derived from sugaracane. Azotic’s N-Fix® technology is a process for inoculating or coating plant seeds with beneficial bacteria to create a symbiotic relationship for mutual benefit.
This seed inoculation technology provides farmers with an alternative, to the synthetic nitrogen from the Haber-Bosch process. It is more cost effective, environmentally friendly and sustainable.
