Mode Of Action:
VAM accumulates phosphate through its vesicles and arbuscules and can travel far from the plant roots in search of phosphate resources. It penetrates into the plant root cells, producing balloon like vesicles.
Benefits To The Crop:
Improves overall plant development and root growth.
It enhances phosphate uptake and mobilizes immobile nutrients like Fe, Mn, Zn, Cu, Bi, Mo and Mg.
It gets plant nutrients beyond nutrient depleting zone.
Besides these, it imparts resistance to plant against drought, soil borne fungal pathogens and nematodes.
Increases plant immunity and enhances product quality.
VAM supplements root hair in water absorption thus preventing reduction in crop relative water content of cells to overcome drought.
