Method of Action

Energy metabolism: The microscopic organisms require inorganic atoms as an electron giver and inorganic carbon, (for example, carbon dioxide) as a source. They get supplements by oxidizing iron and sulfur with O2.

Tthiobacillus thioxidans develops at pH estimations of 4.5 to 1.3 in salt medium and determines its biosynthetic prerequisites via autotrophy i.e it utilized carbon from climatic carbon dioxide. It likewise fixes Nitrogen in acidophilic natural surroundings. The microscopic organisms infer its metabolic vitality by oxidation of diminished inorganic sulfur mixes or ferrous particles. Anaerobic development occurs by utilizing essential hydrogen or diminished inorganic sulfur mixes as electron benefactors and ferric particles as electron acceptors.

Enzyme production : Tthiobacillus thioxidans oxidizes zinc and secretes natural acids which assembles the fixed zinc and makes it accessible to the plants. This likewise cuts down the pH of the dirt and aides in recovering basic soils.

Method of Application

Seedling treatment: Mix 100 g. of Tthiobacillus thioxidans with adequate amount of water and natural excrement to shape a slurry. The seedlings are dunked in this slurry for 30 minutes before planting so the microbes get appended to the roots.

Soil application: Mix 3-5 Kg/acre of Tthiobacillus thioxidans with compost and apply to an acre of soil

Trickle Irrigation : Mix 3 Kg/acre of Tthiobacillus thioxidans in drip stream.


Tthiobacillus thioxidans is reasonable for application on Cereals, Millets, Pulses, Oilseeds, Fiber Crops, Sugar Crops, Forage Crops, Plantation crops, Vegetables, Fruits, Spices, Flowers, Medicinal yields, Aromatic Crops, Orchards and Ornamentals.

Target Nutrition : Zinc mobilization


Tthiobacillus thioxidans is compatible with BioPesticides and other BioFertilizers.
