Both molasses andmohua flowers serve as source of energy for azotobacter, but the amount of nitrogen fixed per gram of material or per gram of carbon supplied is much less than in the case of mannite. In this respect,mohua flowers which contain larger amount of nitrogen than molasses are a greater offender. Even at very low concentrations, molasses is less efficient than mannite.
