Acidithiobacillus Ferrooxidans is an effective biofertilizer that helps solubilizing iron content in the soil and make them available for the plant. This product is highly recommended for those soils with iron deficiency.

Potency : Acidithiobacillus Ferrooxidans  5x10^7 CFU per g

Benefits : Stimulates plant growth, provide plant protection against drought and soil borne diseases, increases crop yield and improve quality of the produce, improve nutrient and water uptake of the plant

Dosage & Methods of Application

Seed Coating/Seed Treatment : prepare a mixture of 10 - 15 grams Acidithiobacillus Ferrooxidans in a sufficient amount of water and make them slurry and coat 1kg of seeds, dry in shade and can be ready to use in the field.


Seedling Treatment : Prepare a mixture of 100 grams Acidithiobacillus Ferrooxidans in a sufficient amount of water. Dip the roots of the seedlings into the the solutions for 30 minutes to have the bacteria attach into the roots prior to planting.

Soil Treatment : Mix 2.5 - 5kg per hectare of Acidithiobacillus Ferrooxidans with organic manure/organic fertilizers. Incorporate the mixture and spread into the field on the time of planting/sowing.

Soils that are more acidic have less availability of calcium (Ca) and magnesium (Mg) because these chemical compounds become less mobile and plants have more difficulty absorbing them. At the same time, iron (Fe), manganese (Mn), and zinc (Zn) become far more mobile and available to plants, while phosphorus (P) becomes more available at first and later is almost completely immobilized. An increase in alkalinity (that is, an increase in pH levels) reverses these processes. [Read more]
