PROGRESS-P is a bio fertilizer that helps in solubilising Phosphorus, based on a selected strain of naturally-occurring beneficial bacteria Pseudomonas striata. It is used as an effective soil inoculant. It contains vegetative cells of Pseudomonas striata. It is formulated as Wettable Powder with CFU count of 5 X 107 / g. It is approved for use in Organic Agriculture.
Phosphorus is abundant in several soils and is one of the major nutrients required for plant growth. The overall Phosphorus use efficiency following phosphate fertilizer application is low because of the formation of insoluble complexes. This leads to frequent application of soluble forms of inorganic Phosphorus necessary for crop production. This results in leaching to the ground water and results in eutrophication of aquatic systems and pollutes soil.
A large portion of this soluble inorganic phosphate applied to the soil as chemical fertilizer is immobilized rapidly and becomes unavailable to plants. PROGRESS-P aids in transformation of soil Phosphorus and is therefore an integral part of the soil Phosphorus cycle as it helps in releasing Phosphorus from inorganic and organic pools of total soil Phosphorus through solubilization and mineralization.
Mode of Action :
Carbon utilization: The bacteria contained in PROGRESS – P on application to the soil get activated and multiply by utilizing the carbon source of soil or exudates of the root and in this process secrete organic acids and enzymes.
Metabolite production :
Pseudomonas striata produces organic acids such as Indole Acetic acid, gluconic acid and enzymes that help solubilize the fixed phosphorus into exchangeable form. These organic acids through their hydroxyl and carboxyl groups chelate the cations (mainly Calcium) bound to phosphate converting them into the soluble forms.
An inverse relationship is observed between the pH and soluble-Phosphorus concentration which indicates that organic acid production by phospho bacteria plays a significant role in the acidification of the soil medium facilitating Phosphorus solubilization and easier assimilation by plants.
Method of application:
PROGRESS-P is suitable for application on virtually all kinds of crops including Cereals, Millets, Pulses and Oilseeds. It can also be used for Fibre Crops, Sugar Crops, Forage Crops, Plantation Crops, Vegetables, Fruits, Spices, Flowers, Medicinal Crops, Aromatic Crops, Orchards and Ornamentals.
