Savitribai Phule Pune University Pune
Affiliated Ministry: Ministry of Education
Type of technology development: Indigenous
Does the technology help in replacing any import items currently
procured from outside India?
Does the technology have export potential? No
Category of Technology developed: Immediate Deployment
Stage of Development: Prototype Level
Please describe in detail including the TRL Level:
TRL Level 4 Prototype Developed and tested under Greenhouse conditions and with successful experiments on Solanum Lycopersicum and Phaseolus vulgaris crops


Applications: BasciMix is a biological fertilizer based on selected strains of naturally occurring beneficial Bacillus species BasciMix contains endospores of Bacillus species which are approved for the use in organic agriculture BasciMix aids in transformation of soil Phosphorus into an assimilable form and is therefore an integral part of the soil Phosphorus cycle as they help in releasing Phosphorus from inorganic and organic pools of total soil Phosphorus through solubilisation and mineralization
Advantages: Biological N2 fixation Increasing the availability of nutrients in the rhizosphere Inducing increases in root surface area Enhancing other beneficial symbioses of the host Combination of modes of action

I-Mitra(आई-मित्र) Welcomes You..
It has always been the basic tenet of the Government of India, in generously funding R&D efforts at academic institutions over the years, that facilities established through such support be made available to those needing them and qualified to make use of them for their own research work

However, this was never easy or straightforward for, among other reasons, there was no ready source of information of what facility was available and where. Thanks to the Web, it is much easier today to have a national and regional “inventory of resources”, so as to match users with the resources they need, and to do all this in an efficient and transparent manner.

This can lead to a leap in R&D productivity and greatly enhance the effectiveness of public investment. This is the motivation behind I-STEM.
