Nu VAM is a Biofertilizer based on spores and fragments of mycorrhizal fungal filaments and infected root bits. VAM is used as an effective soil inoculant. Nu VAM contains Vesicular Arbuscular Mycorrhiza which is formulated with vermiculite as carrier containing Glomus species. It has a count of 100 infective propagules per gram. Nu VAM is approved for use in Organic Farming.
Mode of Action Symbiosis: Nu VAM containing mycorrhizae are present universally in soil; Mycorrhizae are obligate and saprophytic in nature which requires a living host for its survival. The myccorhizae start associating symbiotically with root of the plants. This helps in the absorption of water, phosphorus mobilization and other essential macro and micro elements and makes them available to the plants in an assimable farm.
Resistance: Mycorrhizae is also believed to impart drought tolerance to plants and resistance to soil borne fungal pathogens through its symbiotic associative property.
