Azotic is based in BioCity and was established to exploit Nitrogen Fixation technology developed in the Schools of Biology and Biosciences.
DATE FIRST INVESTED
The company is focusing on enabling a specific range of economically important crops to grow with the ability to fix nitrogen from the air rather than relying on nitrogen added to the soil, reducing the need for fertiliser. This will be a significant economic benefit to growers, and carries the added benefit of reducing harm to the ecosystem.
Azotic raised substantial investment which it has used to conduct independent field trials with inoculated seeds in a range of crops around the world in different growing seasons. To date, the results in all trials have exceeded even the best of expectations.
