Pink Pigmented Facultative Methylotroph (PPFM)


BIO REVIVE is a microbial product developed for protecting the crops from abiotic and biotic stress especially water stress/drought. The beneficial bacteria present in this formulation are different from others in metabolising methanol and other simpler carbon compounds by living in phyllosphere, the aerial leaf surfaces of plants. They excrete plant growth hormones auxins and cytokinins that influence germination and root growth and help plants to endure water stress. Because in dry conditions, quick growth of deep roots soon after germination may gain a competitive advantage over more shallowly rooted species. And also, these bacteria exude osmo-protectants namely sugars and alcohols on the surface of the plants they reside at. It also enables the plant to close the stomata in the leaves at the time of water stress for reducing the evapo-transpirational loss of water. These mechanisms are believed to help in protecting the plants from desiccation and high temperatures.  


Besides protecting the plants from drought, it accelerates vegetative growth, increase leaf area index, chlorophyll content, offers resistance against infection by plant pathogens and increases yield by ten percent. It improves earliness in flowering, fruit set, and maturation thus making post harvest operations easy. It also improves fruit quality, color and seed weight.

Recommended Crops

It can be recommended for rainfed crops and drought/other abiotic/biotic stress prone crops such as Rice, Wheat, Sugar cane, Cotton, Banana, Vegetables, Fruits and Plantation crops.
