All About
BioVam Mycorrhiza
Plant Root Inoculant

What Is It?  How Does It Work?  How Do You Use It?  Plants Benefited by it?

Using BioVam Is Like Adding Thousands of Tiny Extra Roots To Your Plants!

BioVam is a Mycorrhizal Root and Soil Inoculant, Auxiliary Soil and Plant Substance (Biotic).
Non-Plant Food product.

BioVam's Mycorrhiza fungi develops a network of microscopic filaments (hyphae) in the soil and when they come into contact with roots they thread their way between and into the cells of plant roots. There, an exchange of nutrients takes place that allows for the survival and growth of both plant and fungi. The wide dispersion of the fungi filaments (hyphae) in the soil gives the fungi access to a volume of soil, up to 1,500 % larger than the roots of the plant. The fungi provide a sustained flow of nutrients to which a plant would not normally have access via its root system. The plant in return furnishes nutrients such as sugars and amino acids to the fungi to support its life and growth.

Treated plants are better nourished and more resistant to transplant shock and develop increased protection against environmental stresses including drought, cold, salinity, and pollution. The relationship between the plant and fungi also tends to promote health in the host plants. The symbiotic relationship between plants and Mycorrhiza fungi results in sustained vitality and vigor of colonized plants and often results in improved resistance to diseases, higher yields, better flavor, lower spoilage rates, and less attraction to destructive insects This symbiotic relationship allows plants to uptake as much as ten times more nutrients than their roots alone. 

Note: Mycorrhiza is particularly sensitive to phosphate fertilizers and certain fungicides (see our nutrient levels and precautions information in our ?How to Apply? brochure.) Once plants are responding to Mycorrhiza we recommend that an application of Biosol Forte 7-2-1 (or an appropriate fertilizer*) be applied to the ground around your plants. This is an excellent fertilizer that provides organic material for soil microbes as well as low levels of nutrients that the Mycorrhiza can feed to your plants.

It is not natural for most plants to exist without the assistance of Mycorrhizae in their root system and their absence forces the grower to continually "feed" plants.  This is a needless waste of time and money, and over application of artificial "miracle" fertilizers will eventually destroy the biological health of the soil.

Periodic or annual re-application of BioVam and Biosol Forte 7-2-1 (or an appropriate fertilizer*) is highly recommended to maintain peak performance of your plants and grass, and to replenish needed micronutrients and Organics that the Mycorrhiza and microbes need in order to feed your plants.

It is highly probable that use of BioVam will achieve significantly reduced expenditures on fungicides, pesticides and use of fertilizer. Cottonseed meal, Gypsum, Planters 2, or Rock Dust products can also be applied to plants treated with BioVam to enhance and replenish soil nutrients.

BioVam Mycorrhiza is not seasonally or weather dependent or limited in application or usage - apply anytime: Spring, Summer or Fall on non-frozen soils.  Apply even in winter if your local area remains mild in that season.  BioVam begins working upon root contact.

BioVam Mycorrhiza enhances plant root development, vitality, vigor, growth, and quality through improved organic methods - and aids in creating healthy soil conditions.

Biosol Forte 7-2-1 is a rich, complex slow release natural organic fertilizer with micronutrients, highly suited and needed for sustaining the Mycorrhizal process.

We guarantee the viability, quality and packaged quantity of our products. It is highly probable that superior responses in plant growth, health and yield will occur from their use.

Due to the variability of soils and conditions found in various locations and their affects on plant and soil responsiveness to our products, we cannot guarantee all these benefits will occur in all locations and situations.

BioVam's viability is guaranteed for two years from date of shipping from the manufacture, Mike Brock.

* Appropriate types of Fertilizers: Note: Use of BioVam Mycorrhiza requires that fertilizers have low soluble phosphorus levels. Phosphorous levels < or = 2% by weight are safe to use. Higher levels of free phosphorus are detrimental to the beneficial Mycorrhiza fungi.  Examples of appropriate fertilizers: *Biosol Forte 7-2-1, *Ringers All Natural 10-2-6, *Milorganite 6-2-0, *Cottonseed Meal 6-2-1, *Planters II trace mineral fertilizer.

Partial list of plants benefited by BioVam Mycorrhiza: Acacia, Agapanthus, Alder, Alfalfa, All Bulbs, All Citrus, All Grapes, All Maples, All Melons, All Palms, All Squash, Almond, Apple, Apricot, Artichoke, Ash, Asparagus, Avocado, Bamboo, Banana, Basil, Bayberry, Bean, Begonia, Black Locust, Blackberry, Box Elder, Boxwood, Burning Bush, Cacao, Cactus, Camellia, Carrot, Cassava, Ceanothus, Cedar, Celery, Cherry, Chrysanthemum, Clover, Coconut, Coffee, Coral Tree, Corn, Cotton, Cottonwood, Cucumber, Currant, Cypress, Dogwood, Eggplant, Elm, Euonymus, Fern, Fescus, Fig, Forsythia, Fountain Grass, Fuschia, Gardenia, Garlic, Geranium, Grass, Hibiscus, Holly, Impatiens, Jojoba, Juniper, Kiwi, Leek, Lettuce, Lily, Magnolia, Mahogany, Mahonia, Mango, Marigold, Mesquite, Millet, Morning Glory, Nasturtium, Okra, Olive, Onion, Pacific Yew, Pampas Grass, Papaya, Passion Fruit, Paw Paw, Pea, Peach, Peanut, Pear, Pecan, Pepper, Pistachio, Pittosporum, Plum, Poinsettia, Potato, Raphiolepis, Raspberry, Redwood, Rice, Rose, Russian Olive, Ryegrass, Sagebrush, Sourwood, Soybean, Strawberry, Sudan Grass, Sugar Cane, Sumac, Sunflower, Sweet Gum, Sweet Potato, Sycamore, Tea, Tobacco, Tomato, Walnut, Wheat, Yam, Yellow Poplar, and Yucca. (partial list).

Note: Plants in the following families do not respond to this type of Mycorrhizae, but they do benefit from the bacteria in BioVam: Beet, Birch, Cabbage, Carnation, Eucalyptus, Heath, Mustard, Pine, Oak, Orchid, Rush, Protea, Sedge, and Spinach.

Mycorrhizal fungi can be endo (within the root and cells), or ecto (on the outside of the root and cells). BioVam contains Endomycorrhizae and Ectomycorrhizae.

Asparagus, citrus, melons, onions, peppers, squash, Tomatoes, and most flowers are extremely responsive to BioVam?s Mycorrhiza.  BioVam works best when applied to the roots of seedlings or new transplants.
