Symbion VAM is based on spores, fragments of mycorrhizal fungal filaments and infected roots bits. It is made on exfoliated vermiculite carrier contains mainly Glomus sp., and other endo-mycorrhizal species at 60 spores per gram of the product.
Symbion VAM makes the plant root system get access to the easily usable form of nutrients. It acts as accessories to the root hairs in the process of nutrient absorption and mobilization. It facilitates nutrient translocation from the soil and root cortical parenchyma to xylem elements. It also function as supplement to root hairs in water absorption, thus helps plants to overcome drought stress. It is an ‘organic certified’ product.
Mode of Action:
Symbion VAM by associating symbiotically with root of the plants helps in the greater absorption of phosphorous, water and other important macro and essential micro elements and making them available to the plants in an easily usable organic form. Besides they are also reported to impart resistance to plants against drought and other abiotic and biotic stress.
