|3|| MODE OF ACTION
Rhizobium is a soil microbe which lives in symbiotic association with leguminous plants. Rhizobium colonizes the root nodules of legumes and fixes nitrogen utilizing the host carbohydrates as energy source. A minimum of 25 - 30 kg Nitrogen per hectare per season is fixed through it's actions, which exceeds plant usage. The excess nitrogen is left in the soil which is available for the later crops. This in turn contributes 10 to 25% increase in yield along with mineralization of other nutrients.
ABTEC Rhizobium is used only for leguminous plants (pulses) like cow pea, beans, ground nuts, soybean, green gram, black gram, bengal gram etc.

ABTEC Rhizobium is normally used for seed treatment and pit application the normal dosage being 20 g/plant.
