BIOVAM PROTOCOL FOR
ARTICHOKES, ASPARAGUS, and RHUBARB

We have done our level best to make BioVam the highest quality product of its kind available anywhere.

I. INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE

A. APPLICATION IN NURSERY:
Mix BioVam into bedding soils at a rate of 8 pounds per cubic yard.  Do not add fertilizers or chemical fungicides to soil mixes.

Caution:
If you pasteurize your soils, keep in mind that temperatures above 110 F (45 C) may be lethal to the Mycorrhiza in BioVam.

APPLICATION IN THE FIELD FOR NEW PLANTINGS OR TRANSPLANTING:
A minimum of 1 teaspoon of BioVam per plant is recommended when transplanting uninoculated plants. Place BioVam onto moistened roots or in the planting hole directly under seedling, ensuring that physical contact between BioVam and roots is established.

C. FERTILIZERS:
We recommend the use of well-composted materials added to the fill soil at a ratio of 10% compost to soil. Materials high in fulvic and humic acids are the most advantageous to successful union of BioVam and root.   Mycorrhizal inoculation is usually most responsive at low fertility levels. To assure inoculation the University of California recommends that the nutrient levels should be below at least one of the following with the phosphorous level being the most critical:

Nitrogen* 50 ppm approx. 95 lbs./ac = 105 kg/ha
Phosphorous (Olsen) 34 ppm approx. 64 lbs./ac = 71 kg/ha
Manganese 27 ppm approx. 50 lbs./ac = 55 kg/ha
Zinc 12 ppm approx. 23 lbs./ac = 25 kg/ha
Organic Matter    
 

* Nitrate forms of nitrogen are preferable to ammonium forms especially in peat mixes.

Caution: Do not use pre-plant fertilizer or fertilizers in the hole at time of planting. Added chemical or organic fertilizers will impair BioVam's ability to establish itself in the root of the plant and delay or destroy the beneficial effects of BioVam on the plant.

D. FREQUENCY OF USE OF FERTILIZER:
Two applications of Biosol Forte or another organic fertilizer equivalent to NPK 7-2-1 should be adequate for the crop production cycle. This fertilizer should be applied at a rate of 1/3 less than the manufacturer's recommendation.  A single application of Planters II Trace Mineral Fertilizer as a top dressing around the plant will take care of the plants annual mineral needs.

MISCELLANY:


All recommendations about BioVam dosage represents a minimum amount.  Increased dosages will add to speed and effectiveness of BioVam's work on the roots of your plants.

Insect control should be achieved by using effective integrated pest control measures (IPM) whenever possible. This means the use of beneficial insects, botanical insecticides or other environmentally sensitive alternatives are recommended.  Refer to the Nutrient Levels and Precautions document for chemicals compatible with BioVam.
