AspeN – nitrogen fixating bacteria for a natural organic nitrogen solution

Converts atmospheric nitrogen into plant-available nitrogen in your soil so you can:

  • Grow healthier, more vigorous plants
  • Improve root growth and health
  • Increase plant tolerance to various types of stress, including extreme weather conditions

May reduce the need for applied Nitrogen-N fertisilier by two thirds or more.

AspeN contains 2 nitrogen-fixating bacteria, Azospirillum brasilense and Azotobacter chroococcum.

Nitrogen is required in the greatest amount of all nutrients transported to plants through the soil or leaf. It drives chlorophyll production in the foliage and is one of the key elements that help keep plants green and growing efficiently.

The 2 bacteria in AspeN display a versatile C- and N-metabolism, which makes them well adapted to establish in the competitive environment of the rhizosphere. Unlike other nitrogen-fixating bacteria, they can be used for leguminous as well as non-leguminous crops in symbiosis with soil rhizobial bacteria. They are also well suited to hot northern conditions.

AspeN is compatible with applied Nitrate-N fertilisers, allowing you to reduce use by 50-66%

As with all biological inputs, poor soil makes it more difficult to establish a healthy population of the bacteria. Take care to provide organic matter for the bacteria to feed on in order to achieve the best results.

Works well with

  • RhizoPhos – powerful combo to boost nitrogen & phosphorus, for strong and vigorous plant growth

Can be used in conjunction with

  • Nitrogen – N fertilisers
  • Phosphate – P fertilisers

AspeN contains 2 nitrogen fixating bacteria –

  • Azotobacter chroococcum
  • Azospirillum brasilense

Assists with nitrogen fixation.

Converts atmospheric nitrogen to plant-available nitrogen in the soil. The lower the available nitrogen in the soil, the greater the volume of atmospheric nitrogen it will convert.
