80 % of the plants live in symbiosis with the vesicular-arbuscular mycorrhiza, (VA) -mycorrhiza, short ENDO-Mycorrhiza. The fungi hyphen grow with tree-like branched hyphen endings in the bark cells. Characteristic for the ENDO-Mycorrhiza is the formation of millions of small vesicles and arbuskels. These are storage media for water and nutrients. The mycelium (hyphae) do increase the root surface up to 700%. These hyphen endings are organs through which the symbiotic metabolism fungus – plant takes place. These fungi not only give improved growth of different crops, but also show the potential to increase resistance of the host to root pathogens and to reduce the severity of foliar disease. Under normal or tropical conditions (poor soils, extreme temperatures, high humidity or drought, presence of pathogens) the use of vesicular-arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi can be especially beneficial to perennial crops. It can be used in any new situation in agriculture, horticulture, roses, viniculture, fruit growing, vegetable cultivation, floriculture and lawn. Application in existing situations by injecting it at the plant or tree roots or by adding to the grass seeds in inject-sawing-machines. (Exceptions are listed in ECTO and ERICOIDE-mycorrhiza).
Our product BIOSYM-ENDO is a free flowing granular formulation containing specially selected strains of naturally occurring mycorrhizal fungi. The inorganic material as a carrier for the infection units of the vesicular-arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi – so-called „foam clay“, makes the treatment very easy. Apply either by planting out or during the growth period. Roots are rapidly colonized and protected by the fungi – producing healthier, higher yielding plants.
This product was manufactured according Council Regulation (EC) No. 834/2007 for organic mode of production.
The fungi partners of the VA-Mycorrhiza belong to the genus Acaulospora, Gigaspora, Glomus and Sclerocystis of the Endogonaceae family.
