Frequently Asked Questions About BioVam Mycorrhiza And other T & J Enterprises Products

Have a question about BioVam Mycorrhiza?  Send us an Email!

 
Q: What is BioVam Mycorrhiza?   -B.A. New Mexico

A: Read Overview documents. -TG  

Q: Who makes BioVam?   -V. R. Road Island

A:

BioVam? is invented and manufactured by B. Probiotics, Thousand Oaks Ca.
Q:
How do I apply BioVam on my garden seeds?   -R. F. CA

A:

If you are planting your seeds in a row, take a good pinch of BioVam with your fingers and sprinkle it over two feet, then put your seed down on top of the BioVam.  If you are planting something like corn, put 1/4 teaspoon of Mycorrhiza down under each seed.  The same goes for squash, cucumber or melon seeds.  -TG
Q:
I start all my vegetables in the winter, should I use BioVam with my seeds in my starting trays? How much do I use with each seed? And when I plant the starts in the spring, should I reapply BioVam then? How much should I use? What kind of fertilizer should I use, how much and when should I apply it? Sorry for so many questions, but this looks like an exciting product!   -J.L. Oregon

A:

Q1-Yes.  Q2-1/4 teaspoon.  Q3-Yes.   Q4-1/2 teaspoon per seedling.  For a potting soil mix, I'd mix about 1/2 cup of Biosol Forte 7-2-1 Organic fertilizer per gallon of mix.  Outside, before planting, I'd mix one cup of Biosol Forte 7-2-1 Organic fertilizer per 10 square feet into the soil.  If you had some Rock Dust like planters II, I'd mix about a cup of that into 10 square feet of soil before planting the seedlings.  It probably would be a good idea to put about 1/2 cup of Rock Dust into the potting soil also.  You shouldn't have to use any more fertilizer for the rest of the year on those plants.  -TG
Q:
What kind of fertilizer should I use on my flower starts after I have planted them with BioVam? When should I fertilize them and how often?  -B.J. Nevada

A:

I would precondition the soil as noted above.  If this is a perennial plant, then I'd apply the same amount of products as the preconditioning noted in above each fall as a side dressing.  That gives those products fall and winter to work with the dormant plant root systems.  -TG
Q:
I have been farming wheat 30 years in central Washington, and in looking over your pictures on Red and White wheat am really surprised at the growth rates and strong root development. I am interested in learning more about its application rates per acre and how to apply it? Look forward to your answers!  -G. K. WA.

A:

5.5 pounds per acre of BioVam in powdered form can be mixed with the seed.  Mix slightly moist seed with the BioVam first and then run it all out together at the time you plant the seed.  If you have fumigated your soils, wait 25 days before using the BioVam in those soils.  Before you go ahead with this, let's have a conversation to see what else you are doing to protect the wheat you are planting or what kind of equipment you are using to plant the seed.  This can get complicated, so it is best that we talk about all the details first.  -TG
Q:
I am a raspberry grower in Western Washington, with 4 acres of bushes, and was floored to see the fantastic results you are getting using BioVam on your back yard patch! The root and leaf development is most interesting! How would I apply it to my 4 acres? Should I apply it yearly?  We till between the rows, to keep the weeds down. I would like to order a quart to do a test. Can you give me some guidelines on doing that?  -B.W. WA.

A:

There may be certain cultural practices you may have to curtail before using BioVam.  Please read the Nutrient Levels and Precautions document in the Application menu.  This application method is labor intensive, but it will deliver excellent results... use a four foot construction pry bar with a pointed end to poke two holes on each side of your Raspberry hills.  Put 1/2 teaspoon of BioVam in each hole and cover with soil.   I would fertilize once a year as noted above each Fall.  I would also consider putting in a nitrogen fixing cover crop in between the rows that can be mowed periodically.  A lot of weeds will go away because they don't seem to like growing where Mycorrhiza is plentiful.  The roots of the Raspberry plants will go out quite a ways into the area between the rows and it might be better to not till that soil anymore.  We really need to get together and talk about what other things you are doing before you commence with treating your plants.  -TG.
Q:
I would like to order a quart of BioVam from you for my Squash patch but don't like giving out my credit card over the internet.   Am worried about whether it is really safe to do that! Do you accept checks over your secure server too?   -E S. WA

A:

Credit card numbers are entered into a secured server and they are safe from hackers.  Never send your credit card number over an unsecured link and never by email.  You can call us and we can take your number and order over the phone or you can even send us a snail mail letter with the information.  I don't think we are set up to take checks over our secured server link.  -TG.
Q:
Do you accept all credit cards?  -R G Texas

A:

No.  We accept VISA, MC, & Discover.  Debit cards from those same companies seem to work also.  By the way, if you ever want to set up a merchant account, go to COSTCO.   They have the best deal going. -TG
Q:
I am an independent lawn care provider in Virginia. If I wanted to start using your products in my business (am wanting to expand into Organics) how would I go about setting it up?  Do you have a program set up to help companies like mine get started using your products? I know you probably can't answer everything here, so please email me with your details! Look forward to hearing back from you!   -C P Virginia

A:

We are currently doing this with other companies.  We have a suggested price list and promotional literature that can be customized for your use.  I'll send you the details.  -TG
Q:
I am looking to invest in Agri-biotic companies. Does your company have stock offerings? Does your the MFG. of your product? Who should I contact?  Any information you can provide would be greatly appreciated.   -V S New York

A:

Neither T&J Enterprises nor B. Probiotics are a corporation.  So no stock offering is available.
Q:
Do you have a list of plants that BioVam? works on?  -A R - New Zealand

A:

Yes we do.  Read the Mycorrhizal Plant List in the Application menu. -TG
Q:
How quickly do you get your orders out after I place my on-line order?  How do you ship, and what carrier do you use to ship?   -R R - Florida
A:
Most orders go out the day they were received or the next working day.  We do most of our shipping via US Mail, but can ship via any carrier you prefer. -TG
Q:
How should I store the BioVam I have left over?  -D B - New Jersey
A:
Keep in a cool dry dark place.  Store at 70 F or less but do not freeze.  -TG
Q:
Can BioVam be applied any time of the year or through the growing season?   -I J - Alabama
A:
BioVam can be applied any time of the year as long as the ground is not frozen or superheated. Most importantly, BioVam is not a seasonally dependent product the way most chemicals are. BioVam works with the roots of plants, and as long as you can get at them or into the ground "to" them you can apply it. Some plants you may want to apply it to in the fall, such as Strawberries. They will come on gangbusters the next spring and larger operations might find it more convenient to apply after their harvest if they are in the middle of it. So, really, the "best" time to apply BioVam to your plants and trees "in general" is NOW! With one time harvest plants the sooner the better - but we have applied it to them while only three or four weeks away from harvest and the plants became stronger and fruit much improved over those not treated. For plants and trees that go year round "anytime" is the best time, and "right now" even better! -TG
Q:
I am a master gardener in California, and have 230 Roses on my land, several varieties. About half are several years old and of those several dozen are just not doing that great.  Does BioVam help rejuvenate older rose plants?  -T.K. - CA
A:
BioVam works great with rose plants.  The age of the plant doesn't matter.  I've used it on 14 year old Rose plants and have had an excellent response. -TG
Q:
I am a landscaper, how can your products help benefit my business?  -P D - Utah
A:
BioVam benefits about 90% of the plants on the planet.  It will help insure you are getting the best response from the plants you put in the ground for your customers.  Look at these documents Plants Benefited by BioVam,  Product Label, and BioVam Overview documents for more info on the benefits of BioVam  We also supply BioVam to businesses such as yours.  I'll send you some info about suggested prices and samples of our literature. -TG
Q:
I have a large Maple sugar bush growing operation in New Hampshire, and was wondering does BioVam work on them? I saw your page on Maple trees and am very interested in exploring the prospects of increased production on my farm. Have you done or do you know of field trials on them?   -N.S. New Hampshire.
A:
We have a trial going with a grower right now.  We feel sugar Maple trees will have a significant increase in the production of sap because of what we have seen in the treatment of Maple trees here in Spokane.  We are finding the same benefits going on internally in all of the plants we have tested so far with BioVam as what we have observed with Maple trees here in Spokane.  -TG
Q:
We just wanted to let you know your site is fantastic! Lots of exciting things here to read about! We raise cattle, Black Angus, here in central Oregon. We are constantly looking for ways to improve our grazing fields, improve rotation and quality of our grazing plants. With the public awareness of the dangers of chemicals in such operations we have been constantly striving to find ways to improve grazing without the use of chemicals. Does BioVam work in these situations where the grazing plants are constantly being eaten and trampled on? We look forward to reading your response! Keep up the good work! -L H & B H Oregon
A:
BioVam will benefit all of the grasses your cattle are grazing.  The nutritional value of the feed will certainly go up if it is produced under the influence of BioVam.  -TG
