- Frateuria aurantia is a beneficial bacterium capable of mobilizing the elementary potassium present in the soil towards the roots of the plants, after converting it into plant utilisable form. It works well in all types of soil especially, low potassium content soil. Use of such bacteria in powder form can increase the availability of more potash in usable form to the plants.
- SPECTRUM All crops including cereals, vegetables, plantation crops and ornamental plants.
- ABTEC Bio – Potash is mainly used for direct soil application. It can be used for seed treatment also. Apply in wet soil as basal dose along with organic manure and refresh it periodically along with organic manure. The normal dosage of ABTEC Bio – Potash is 20 g/plant.
- Broadcasting / Soil Application: Soil application @ 8 – 10 kg/ha after mixing with 250 to 375 kg of ABTEC Super Organic Manure or Farm Yard Manure (FYM). For fruit trees and vines directly apply at root zone early in season @ 50 gm/litre of water.
- Seed treatment: Spray the seeds with a sticky/gummy solution like starch solution/jaggery solution, so that the surface of the seed will be wet. Take Potash in a tray (@25g/1kg of seeds), add the wet seeds to this and gently mix by rolling the seeds in the powder so that the seeds will be coated uniformly. Dry the seeds in shade for 30 minutes and sow within a day. For seedlings, dip the seedlings in a slurry of Potash(make a 5-10% slurry in sticky solution) for 5-10 minutes before planting
Frateuria aurantia – Finest bio Fertilizer Based on a Selective Strain of Potash mobilizing Bacteria
The bacterium Frateuria aurantia mobilises the potash molecules in the soil and brings them to the proximity of roots so that the plants can absorb them.
This is also reported to provide protection against the soil borne fungal pathogens.
