This best-selling biological inoculant contains bacteria called Azospirillium brasilense- a rhizobacterium that initiates the production of a plant hormone called auxin. This hormone accelerates root growth which in turn increases nutrient uptake and water retrieval. This proves beneficial in dry environments where water and nutrient uptake is a challenge. Accolade is for use on all crops and can be seed applied or liquid in-furrow. It is also compatible with most seed treatments and fertilizers.
