4 pagesDate: December 16, 2021


Study show that in Tanzania crop production has become unsustainable due to high increase in soil infertility. This problem is a result of inadequate soil fertility management such as prolonged use of chemical fertilizers. Study indicates the use of biofertillozers could be a practical solution to the problem. This study focused on the use of Azotobacter as a plant promoting bacteria. Bacteria obtained from Microbiology laboratory in the college of veterinary medicine and biomedical sciences at Sokoine University of Agriculture. The bacteria isolate was grown in the large flask vessel (liquid form). The trial conducted to vegetables using seedling method of application in comparison to chemical fertilizers. High yield were obtained in vegetables grown by biofertillozers than to that used chemical fertilizers, also the soil content was analyzed and soil fertility were retained with the application of biofertillozers than with the use of chemical fertilizers.
