Patents granted for nitrogen-fixing technology from Azotic Technologies


Azotic Technologies, the UK-based global ag-tech company, announces that the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office has granted Azotic two significant patents. The first patent is “Novel Microorganisms and Their Use in Agriculture,” while the second patent is “Plant Inoculation Method.”

Both patents relate to Azotic’s natural nitrogen fixing technology (N-Fix) which is derived from a naturally occurring food grade bacterium, Gluconacetobacter diazotrophicus (Gd).

Both these patents are part of Azotic’s patent portfolio strategy and have been granted in other territories, for example the European Union, the United Kingdom and South Africa. This follows on the issuance of several patents earlier this year in Europe and other territories.

N-Fix is an alternative to nitrogen fertilizers. It is environmentally friendly, cost-reducing and is also proven to increase crop yields.

“These patents will increase the market potential for N-Fix products and will benefit the grower as well as the environment,” said Peter Blezard, CEO of Azotic. “They protect Azotic’s product development pipeline and highlights the company’s expertise in nitrogen fixation.”
