Role of Vam Fertilizer


The full form of VAM is vesicular Arbuscular mycorrhizal. It is one of the first microbiological products. It is a fungus that penetrates a Vascular plant’s roots to support them to capture nutrients from the soil. The symbiotic association between plant roots and fungal mycelia is termed as mycorrhiza (fungal roots).It has been associated with increased plant growth and enhanced accumulation of plant nutrients mainly phosphorus, zinc, copper, and Sulphur mainly through greater soil exploration by the mycorrhizal hyphae. It also imparts drought tolerance to the plants as the fungal hyphae function as the extended root system to exploit greater

Role of ‘VAM’

This basic element is essential for the growth of the cells of the plant and for the plant to flower and to produce seeds, as the plant wholly depends on phosphorus for its energy.

Vesicular Arbuscular Mycorrhizal (VAM) is a fungus which has the ability to dissolve the phosphates found in abundance in the soil. Apart from increasing the availability of phosphorus, VAM provides the plants with the  strength to resist disease a germs an weather conditions.

VAM will be active only near the roots of the plants. It can be used by applying on the roots, through a nursery grow bags or by mixing in compost.

In vegetables grown by sowing seeds directly, 20 grams VAM can be put in each hole along with the sowing.

VAM stays with mutual co-operation inside the roots of the plants . The Greek word Mycorrhiza means fungus which lives in root. Mycorrhiza which depends on the plants for starch, reciprocates by providing several nutrients for the plant.

Mycorrhiza increases the amount of phosphorus and trace elements in the soil.

The energy obtained by photosynthesis through leaves moves towards the roots.

Increase in the growth of roots is the result.

Mycorrhiza can increase the number of tapioca produced and also its size. 5 grams of Mycorrhiza should be applied on the roots of the tuber crops.

You can propagate these plants from both seeds and saplings. Although it is more appropriate and advisable to buy a healthy plant from a nearby nursery for better plant growth. But you can also grow them from seeds and suckers that are readily available. If you are growing a nursery bought plant, then look no further and directly plant it into the location you desire. So is the case when growing them from seeds. You can directly sow the seeds on your farm or garden. Soaking the seeds in water before you sow them will ensure better results.

✓ Location

Plant them in a location where they get enough space and sunlight. When you plant the seedlings, they require partial sunlight. However, the bigger plants or trees can survive in full sun.

As these plants are native to India, they do well in tropical and subtropical regions. They can survive the temperatures ranging from 4- 49°C. The best time to grow these plants is in the months of spring or early summer.

✓ Soil
They can survive in almost any kind of well-draining soil. Alluvial soil, mixed with gravel or sandy loam that drains excess water but stays moist, is ideal for growing Sheesham trees. They can also grow in slightly saline soil.

Pests and Diseases
Be careful about termites and fungal infections. These infections are quite easy to treat with the help of soap water or Neem oil solution.

You need to deeply water these plants regularly as the plants require a lot of moisture to grow dense foliage. During their growth period, water them thoroughly until the topsoil goes dry. However, overwatering or flooding the tree continuously will lead to the formation of superficial roots in them.

But, due to the threat of extinction and non-availability of sustainable timber plantations of rosewood in main producing countries, there is a trend in shifting the market. Adding value to the species will yield more economic benefits to the country, and there is a need for buyers and exporters to cooperate in this direction.
