Bacillus megaterium (Phosphate Solubilising Bacteria)

Tierra Overseas is manufacturer and supplier of Bacillus megaterium (Phosphate Solubilizing Bacteria) in India.

Importance of Phosphorous
An adequate supply of phosphorus during early phases of plant development is important for laying down the primordia of plant reproductive parts. It plays significant role in increasing root ramification and strength thereby imparting vitality and disease resistance capacity to plant. It also helps in seed formation and in early maturation of crops like cereals and legumes. Poor availability or deficiency of phosphorus (P) markedly reduces plant size and growth. Phosphorus accounts about 0.2 – 0.8% of the plant dry weight.

Symptoms of Phosphorous Deficiency
The plants are usually dark bluish-green in color with leaves and stem becoming purplish. The degree of purple is influenced by the genetic makeup of the plant, with some hybrids showing much greater discoloration than others. The purplish colour is due to accumulation of sugars that favours the synthesis of anthocyanin (a purplish-colored pigment), which occurs in the leaves of the plant.

The principal mechanism for mineral phosphate solubilization is the production of organic acids; acid phosphatases play a major role in the mineralization of organic phosphorous in soil. The use of phosphate solubilizing bacteria as inoculant simultaneously increases P uptake by the plant and crop yield.

Tierra Overseas is manufacturer and exporter of high quality Bacillus Megaterium (Phosphate Solubilising Bacteria) in India.

CFU Formulation
 1 x 10per ml Aqueous Solution (AS)
 1 x 10per gm Wettable Powder (WP)


Mode of Action The use of phosphate solubilizing bacteria as inoculant simultaneously increases P uptake by the plant and crop yield.
Benefits of Bacillus megaterium Bacillus megaterium lowers pH of the soil in high pH land.
Bacillus megaterium enhances chelation of the cations bound to P.
• Forms soluble complexes with metal ions associated with insoluble P (Ca, Al, Fe) and thus P is released.
• Organic acids produced can either directly dissolve the mineral P as a result of anion exchange of phosphate by acid anion or can chelate Fe, Al and Ca ions associated with P.
Bacillus megaterium increases resistance to disease and drought tolerance.
• Reduces the requirement of phosphate fertilizer by up to 25% initially.
• Can be used for Seed, Seedling, Sett and Plantation crop treatment.
Eco-Friendly Extremely safe to mammals, human beings, animals, natural parasites, predators, non target insects, fishes, birds, etc.
