Mechanism of action of Sulphur Solubilizing Bacteria
Sulphur bacteria form a variety of mutualistic interactions depending on whether they interact with oxidised or reduced sulphur compounds. The bacterial strains produce active cells that grow, multiply, and mobilize the insoluble sulphur present in the soil. Hence, it ultimately increases and improves the uptake of sulphur and makes it readily available to the plant.

Benefits of Sulphur Solubilizing Bacteria
- It helps in the chlorophyll formation that allows photosynthesis, by which plants produce starch, sugars, oils, fats, vitamins and other compounds.
- Sulphur improves plant’s winter hardiness.
