Mycorrhizal and nutrient seed treatment
It all happens at the beginning, the first 15 days post germination play more of a roll in eventual yield than any other growth stage. SureCROP VAM ensures the seedling has everything it needs upfront and then sets it up for maturity.
LawrieCo’s SureCROP VAM is a complete seed treatment combining all the attributes required for optimum seed germination and plant establishment. A specially formulated blend of macro and micro nutrients, living biology, bio-stimulants, plant stimulants, and organic acids that is easily applied directly onto the seed allowing the plant to access all the critical elements required to establish maximum potential.
Combined with the specially formulated base of beneficial living biology. Multiple species of bacillus and trichoderma synergise with VAM (Vesicular Arbuscular Mychorrizal Fungi) to maximise VAM colonisation and its benefits. An easy to use twin pack formulation ensures maximum viability and performance.
VAM has a symbiotic relationship with the plant it attaches and grows hyphae outward from the root. Its hyphae and exudates form the basis for improved soil structure and humus production, and also feed the plant minerals and water. The hyphae of VAM can spread over half a meter from the roots in a growing season and have the ability to solubilise minerals and translocate them back to the plant. It can do the same with water. The fungal hyphae are very fine giving them the ability to extract minerals and penetrate places roots cant fit dramatically increasing the root surface area. As part of the symbiotic relationship in return for minerals and water the plant feeds the VAM carbohydrates back out through the roots, some of these carbohydrates are converted by the VAM into a sticky exudate called Glomalin. Glomalin is critical in building soil structure and soil carbon. It binds soil particles together forming aggregates and protects soil carbon from oxidisation.
VAM is extremely good at solubilising locked up P
The mineral requirements at germination are tiny but critical making SureCROP VAM the most cost effective nutritional input
What is VAM Fungi?
Vesicular-Arbuscular Mychorrizal Fungi or VAM fungi are naturally occurring fungi that form a beneficial association with plant roots enhancing the plant’s mineral absorption and access to moisture.
VAM fungi access locked up phosphorus and zinc.
Successful mycorrhizal fungi colonisation of crop roots can increase access to nutrients (P in particular) and moisture from 100 to 1000 times.
