Vascular Arbuscular Mycorrhiza (VAM)
Product File Specification Enquiry
  • ENVAM contains special strains of Vesicular Arbuscular Mycorrhiza (VAM)
  • It is the most abundant kind of mycorrhiza described as a universal plant symbiosis.
  • VAM are found in practically every taxonomic group of plants and the list of species not infected is probably far shorter than the infected ones.
  • Lack of host specificity is even more characteristic of this symbiosis than other types known.
  • Studies on VAM fungi conducted during last few decades envisaged their occurrence in a wide variety of hosts, different habitats and variability in quality and quantity.
  • VAM choosen in ENVAM is one of the most versatile strain with greatest potential of efficiency and habitat.
Active Ingredient
  • ENVAM contains Vesicular Arbuscular Mycorrhiza (VAM)
  • Off white powder
CFU Count
  • > 2*102 Infective Propagules (IP)/g
Uses of ENVAM
  • Improves uptake of Phosphorus and Zinc.
  • Improves crop growth
  • Improves nitrogen fixation
  • pH tolerance
  • Imparts disease and pest resistance to plants
  • Increases uptake of immobile nutrients.
  • Imparts greater drought tolerance to plants.
  • Conditioning of soil.
Mechanism of Action
  • ENVAM contains Vesicular Arbuscular Mycorrhiza (VAM).
  • ENVAM are symbiotic entophytic soil fungi, which colonize the roots of nearly 80% plants.
  • ENVAM fungi produce hyphae, which are microscopic tubes that colonize crop roots and grow out into the soil with root hairs.
  • Nutrients are taken up by the hyphae and transferred to the plant.
  • This results into very efficient mobilization and uptake of fertilizers and other nutrients by plants.
  • The ENVAM hyphae also help in retaining moisture around the root zone of plants.
Dosage and Method of Application

1. Soil Application::

For solubilizing Phosphorus and other nutrients use ENVAM@ 5- 12.5 kg per hectare (Minimum dose: 625,000 IPs./hectare area) in soil with compost.

2. Procedure:  

Mix @ 5- 12.5 kg of ENVAM with 100 kg soil or compost and broadcast it over one hectare of land.

(Please Note: For best results - before the application of ENVAM remove the weeds near the root of the plant).

How only ENVAM over other VAM?
  • The ENVAM fungi are the best known for its ability to improve plant growth in low phosphate soils by exploiting large areas of soil and actively transporting the phosphate back to the plants.
  • Other benefits to the plants supplied by the ENVAM colonization include increased absorption of nitrogen, potassium, magnesium, copper, zinc, boron, sulphur, molybdenum and other elements that are transported back to the plant.
  • Finally it helps in retaining moisture around root zone of plants.
  • Apply during evening in humid conditions. If conditions are dry, irrigate the land before application.
  • Chemical fertilizers / insecticides should not be sprayed before or after 5 -7 days for best results.
  • Do not mix with chemical fertilizers or insecticides at the time of application.
  • Store in cool place away from direct sunlight and heat.
