PROGRESS–S is a bio fertilizer containing Sulphur solublising bacteria based on a selected strain of naturally-occurring beneficial autotrophic, acidophilic bacteria Thiobacillus thioxidans. It is a gram negative, rod shaped, non sporing bacteria. It is used as an effective soil inoculant approved for use in Organic Agriculture. It contains vegetative cells of Thiobacillus thioxidans and formulated as Wettable Powder with CFU count of 5 X 107/g.
Mode of Action :
Energy metabolism : The bacteria require inorganic molecules as electron donors and inorganic carbon (such as carbon dioxide) as a source. They obtain nutrients by oxidizing iron and sulfur with O2. Thiobacillus thioxidans grows at pH values of 1.3 to 4.5 in salt medium and derives its biosynthetic requirements by autotrophy i.e. it uses carbon from atmospheric carbon dioxide. It also fixes Nitrogen in acidophilic habitats.
The bacteria derives its metabolic energy by oxidation of reduced inorganic sulfur compounds or ferrous ions. Anaerobic growth happens by using elemental hydrogen or reduced inorganic sulfur compounds as electron donors and ferric ions as electron acceptors.
Enzyme production: Thiobacillus thioxidans oxidizes zinc and secretes organic acids which helps mobilize the fixed zinc and make it available to the plants. This also brings down the pH of the soil and helps in reclaiming alkaline soils.
PROGRESS–S is suitable for application on Cereals, Millets and Pulses. It can also be used for Oilseeds, Fiber Crops, Sugar Cane, Forage Crops, Plantation Crops, Vegetables, Fruits, Spices, Flowers, Medicinal Crops, Aromatic Crops, Orchards and Ornamentals.
