Bio-N is an inoculant for rice, corn and other crops like tomatoes, eggplant, sweet pepper, ampalaya and vegetables such as lettuce, and pechay. It contains native bacteria isolated from the roots of the grass talahib (Saccharum spontaneum L.) which can convert atmospheric nitrogen into a form usable by plants. The bacteria enhances root development, growth and yield of the crops. Bio-N comes in a handy 200 g packet meant for either seed inoculation, root inoculation or soil inoculation. Bio-N complements if not substitutes for 30-75% required inorganic fertilizer input depending on cultural practices and fertilization scheme for the particular farm area.
