Procedure for Organic Lawn Care
Our procedure for organic lawn care: Core aerate the lawn at least once a year. Mix one quart of BioVam with 20 lbs. of Planters II mineral fertilizer (both are dry products) and use a drop spreader to apply to 2,000 square feet. Apply one 55 lb. bag of Biosol Forte 7-2-1 per 1,000 square feet of turf grass once per year. Mix 1 tbsp. of Yucca Extract with 4 cups of Natures Own Growing System tea concentrate into a one quart hose end sprayer and apply to 1,000 square feet of lawn once per month.
What the Products Do
BioVam Mycorrhiza enhances plant root development, plant health, growth and quality through improved nutrient flow – and aids in creating healthy soil conditions. Planters II, as a sea bed product and provides all the minerals in balanced form. Biosol Forte 7-2-1 is a rich, complex slow release organic fertilizer highly suited and needed for sustaining the whole ecosystem. Natures Own Growing System Tea furnishes large quantities of aerobic bacteria and fungi which manufacture the food for the turf from the organic material and minerals in the soils. Yucca Extract aids nutrient uptake into the plant, adds tilth to the soil and serves as additional food for the soil life.
Home lawn of T & J Enterprises. We have yet to capture on camera the richness and spectrum of the natural greens. The effects vary throughout the day depending on the light, and are spectacular! This picture was taken 8-01-99. The weather forecast for the week, mid 90's. BioVam grown lawns just get greener as it gets hotter, while the non-BioVam lawns in the distance, just get browner.

Our organic products are not seasonally dependent or limited - apply Spring, Summer or Fall on non-frozen ground. Even in winter if your local area remains mild in those months.
BioVam begins working upon root contact.
Organic benefits, qualities and performance that can eliminate 90% to 100% of your chemical use and costs!
BioVam Grown Gardens are naturally healthy and highly productive.
They produce healthier, higher quality, better tasting Fruits & Vegetables! They are naturally more resistant to extremes of cold, heat, disease and pests and produce higher yields longer into the season, whether growing vegetables, fruits or flowers.
Five weeks to a beautiful, naturally healthy green lawn.
BioVam Grown lawns will exhibit health characteristics never seen before. What actually happens with your lawn and gardens, etc., depends upon your lawn and soil conditions and your growing practices, so we can not guarantee all of these results. But if your soil conditions are right, and you follow our application and maintenance instructions you will see these results. Heavy, compact clay soils (75% or more) may inhibit the Mycorrhiza from establishing and spreading in the soil and may slow down these processes.
When our procedure for organic lawn care is used as follows, we have documented a combination of the following results – which can vary from site to site. To maintain these enhanced qualities, treat your lawns yearly with our BioVam Grown Total Growing System, see our BioVam Grown Lawn Care brochure:
Core aerate the lawn at least once a year.
Mix one quart of BioVam with 20 lbs. of Planters II mineral fertilizer (both are dry products) and use a drop spreader to apply to 2,000 square feet.
Apply one 50 lb. bag of Biosol Forte 7-2-1 per 1,000 square feet of turf grass once per year.
Mix 1 cup of Yucca Extract with 3 cups of Natures Own Growing System tea concentrate into a one quart hose end sprayer and apply to 2,000 square feet of lawn and landscape once per month.
First week: there is significant greening of the lawn. Natural multi greening, not the dark bland chemical greening.
Second week: new grass shoots start growing in throughout the lawn. Significant reduction of top growth and a lot of new growth. Clippings reduced significantly. Greening continues.
Third week: natural greening dominates, new growth continues at an accelerated rate. Thickening of the lawn occurs. Ground stays moister longer, starts feeling softer to your feet as natural aeration by the Mycorrhiza occurs – worm populations are also increasing, aiding this natural aeration of the lawn root system. Clippings are reduced 60% to 90%.
Fourth week: lawn continues thickening, spreading and acting as above. As the sunlight and shadows shift the natural multi greens of mixed seed lawns take on a brilliant, glowing even fluorescent look pleasing to the eye. Clippings are reduced by 60% to 90%.
Fifth week: Deeper greening and thickening occurs yet clippings stay reduced. As the weeks go by all these characteristics increase.
Signs of established BioVam Grown lawns
Sod depth may increase from its normal couple inches to over a foot with roots extending below 17 inches, depending on your soil conditions.
Weeds like Dandelions do not compete well in established BioVam Grown lawns that has a lot of Mycorrhiza in its root system. Such weeds are put under lots of stress because they are not getting enough nourishment. In BioVam Grown lawns the grass is the dominant plant. As it thickens this process becomes more noticeable. BioVam does not kill weeds.
The ground becomes much softer. The grass takes on a cool, spongy feel to your bare feet – and no longer "pricks" your feet. Due to the increased natural soil aeration from the Mycorrhiza and increased worm activity.
A higher percentage of grass seeds germinate when started with BioVam Mycorrhiza. See our Maintenance brochure for over seeding.
Established BioVam lawns resist browning and dying out from pet urine like they do on normal chemically treated lawns.
Maybe that is why Snoopy loves her "BioVam Grown" lawn. There actually is "something" about "BioVam Grown" lawns that dogs find enjoyable, as do many of our backyard wildlife friends.
BioVam Grown lawns and gardens
More resistant to environmental extremes and hazards.
Thatch is dramatically reduced in BioVam Grown lawns. The Mycorrhiza Fungi in BioVam and increased worm activity breakdown existing thatches and feed the nutrients to the live grasses. Thatch problems are frequently eliminated in BioVam Grown lawns. With so few clippings we recommend mulch cutting your lawn. Another source of nutrients for your lawn.
New grass shoots are so competitive that moss is displaced and no longer has dominance in BioVam Grown and maintained lawns.
Poor grasses like bent grass take on beautiful colors and are among the best looking grasses. With BioVam Mycorrhiza in action, that grass looks very good!
In lawn areas under heavy shade like at the base of pine trees, growing conditions that often inhibit grass growth, BioVam Mycorrhiza has overcome with plentiful new growth.
Areas with heavy foot traffic have grown in green and thick with no change in the foot traffic. At one site, cars are driven over the lawn and it shows no sign of wear.
Earthworm populations significantly increase. They also help break down the thatch, aerate and enrich the soil which aids the Mycorrhizal process of your BioVam Grown lawn.
Established BioVam Grown lawns (3 to 5 weeks) resist yellowing
A steel plate was left on both of these lawns for 2.5 days. The front lawn (Below) is BioVam Grown treated lawn. The back lawn (Above) was not.
BioVam Grown lawns resists yellowing from hoses and objects left laying on them.

More on Resistance to diseases when using BioVam Mycorrhiza which contains Glomus Intraradicies:
Use of Mycorrhiza to alleviate the apple replant disease under orchard conditions.
Apple replant disease (ARD) suppresses initial growth of young trees and reduces yield of pome fruits. Greenhouse and orchard experiments were conducted to determine the effect of chemical and biological treatments alone and in combinations in ARD soil. The response was measured by increase in shoot growth, plant weight, and fruit yield of apple trees planted in ARD soil. Inoculations of apple seedlings with the mycorrhizal fungus Glomus Intraradices significantly increased their growth in ARD soil under greenhouse conditions. The application of G. Intraradices alone was consistently effective in increasing fruit yield for 3 years under orchard conditions. The application of B. subtilis alone and in combination with G. Intraradices significantly increased fruit yield for 2 years only. There were no significant differences between chemical treatment with metam sodium and the biological treatments with G. Intraradices, B. subtilis and its combinations for fruit yield under orchard conditions. The consistent performance of G. Intraradicies indicates that this Mycorrhiza has the potential to alleviate the ARD under orchard conditions.
Effects of AM on shoot disease development, yield and physiological background.
GERNNS, HEIKE & HENNING VON ALTEN.
In contrary to increased resistance against root pathogens, AM barley-plants were more susceptible to the shoot pathogen Erysiphe graminis. In spite of a nearly 3-fold higher sporulation rate of the pathogen, AM plants suffered less than non-AM plants in term of ear-yield and yield-index. AM eliminates the positive correlation between disease intensity and yield-loss. This modified disease-yield-relationship indicates that AM can induce tolerance against powdery mildew in barley. Under field and greenhouse conditions the physiological symptoms underlying the AM effects were investigated. Parameters are the carbohydrate and nitrogen metabolism and senescence development, investigated in the different sink and source parts of the plant. Special attention is directed towards the fructan pool. Development of the biotrophic pathogen on barley hindered the filling of fructan pools in the internodia of the plants. In AM plants the carbohydrate allocation an reallocation were less disturbed. In spite of the increased pathogen activity AM plants were able to accumulate higher amounts of stored stem reserves than non-AM plants. Better filling of this long-time storage pools and a good utilisation of these stem reserves during grain filling can be base of a better compensation of pathogen attack in tolerant plants.
Replicated and independent observations and findings of T&J Enterprises, Spokane Washington, 1998, using BioVam Biotic Mycorrhiza Inoculant containing Glomus Intraradicies.
Many of our findings have not been reported in recent scientific journals and are original in our own tests, in a variety of growing situations and conditions.
