It is used for isolation of Azotobacter, a non-symbiotic nitrogen fixing bacteria which uses glucose as a carbon source and atmospheric nitrogen as nitrogen source. Besides the ability to fix atmospheric nitrogen, Azotobacter also synthesize biologically active substances which attributes to improving seed germination, plant growth etc.
