PRODUCT : Containing strain of Acetobacter spp.

TRADE NAME : Sugar-Plus

ACTIVE INGREDIENT :Dormant cell mass of Acetobacter spp. Cell count : 1x10 9/ ml. min. or 1x10 9/ gm. min.

FORMULATION : AS (Aqueous Suspension), WP (Wettable Powder) and GR (Granules).

SPECTRUM : This organism is a nitrogen fixing endophytic bacterium originally isolated from sugar cane but found to be non-specific to many plants and crops. The bacterium establishes growth inside cortical cells of stems and inside xylem vessels. It shows beta-glucoronidase activity which helps fixation of Nitrogen, their by helping in reducing the use of chemical fertilizers. This increases the yield by 20%-25% at a lower cost. It encourages better seed germination, impair disease resitance, improve soil health and soil fertility, secretes growth promoting harmones and enzymes levansucrase, Pyrroloquinolone quinone-linked dehydrogenase to increase crop prodectivity, reduces the dosage requirements of nitrogen (nearly by 20%-30%). It can be used in crops like Sugarcane, Rice, Wheat, Sorghum, Cereals, Pulses, Cotton, Oilseeds, Vegetables, Fruit crops, Plantation crops, Pineapple, Coffee etc.

MODE OF ACTION : The dormant form of Acetobacter spp. cells on reaching the soil gets activated and produces fresh batch of active cells. They establish their growth in the plant stem- cortical and Xylem tissues. They promote the growth of plant, aids in several ways aside from nitrogen fixation. While specifically under nitrogen limiting conditions, its nitrogenase activity has been recorded .Phytochromes- IAA and Gibberellins A1 and A3. Also have Zinc and Phosphorus mobilizing capabilities by secreting Gluconic acid. Increase sucrose content and increase sugar recovery. Elicit a plant defense response against Xanthomonas albilineans, a sugarcane pathogen causing leaf scald disease (Wilt).it shows antifungal activity against Fusarium and Helminthosporium.


SEEDLING DIPPING : Mix 50-100 ml. or gm. of Sugar-Plus in 10-20 Ltr. of water and dip the seedling root for 30 minutes before transplanting.

SETT TREATMENT : Mix 250-500 ml. or gm. of Sugar-Plus in 100 Ltr. of water and dip the setts required for 1 acre for 30 minutes before planting in the field.

SOIL APPLICATION : Mix 750-1000 ml or 4 Kg. per acre of Sugar-Plus with 30-40 kg’s of Farm Yard Manure. In absence of FYM, soil of field can be used. After thoroughly blending, broadcast in 1 acre of land before last ploughing or after first irrigation. In standing crop irrigate the field after its application.

TREE TREATMENT/HORTICULTURE : Apply 0.75-1.5 Ltrs /Acre of Sugar-Plus at the active root zone directly early in the season for most of field trees, fruit trees and ornamental trees through drip Irrigation. Apply 0.75-1.5 ltr. of Sugar-Plus in 100-150 Ltr. of water per acre or 25 ml of Sugar-Plus per Tree/Vines.
