PANAF 1 is a specially formulated product for the control of various phytopathogens.
1. Use 200 part water to 1 part PANAF 1 - 1:200.
2. Put 200 parts water in a tank.
3. Add 1 part PANAF 1 to water in tank.
4. Mix the water with the PANAF 1.
5. Repeat once per month for most effective containment of nematodes.
PANAF 1 can be applied through conventional ground equipment, aerial application, or through properly equipped irrigation systems.
PANAF 1 can be tank mixed with water and PANAF 2.
Soil Application: 1L per hectare.
Leaf Application: 1L per hectare.
Note: For soil application drenching will be advisable.
Foliar (leaf) application has been proven to be the most effective method of treatment.
PANAF 1 BENEFITS
A comparative study was conducted at NWU Faculty of Natural Sciences. The graph (below) depicts the progression of Nematode eggs over a 3,5 month period.
The cycles assumed 4 hatching intervals during this period.
Egg assay was done at the end of the study, and values between Begin and Cycle 4 were calculated on a log scale. PANAF 1 was only applied during Cycle 1. This explains the lower value for eggs (-56%) at the end of Cycle 1. Thereafter remaining eggs will continue to multiply at the same rate as the control. Clearly, the ideal would be to treat plants at least once during each subsequent hatching cycle.
Application was done by spraying leaves. In a previous study a comparison was done by applying PANAF 4 (Inoculant) to the roots of seedlings. After 58 days the assay for the control plant was up from the initial 1000 eggs to 129000, whereas the Plant treated with PANAF 4 increased to 49000 only (a 62% reduction)..
This clearly indicates the need for a combined approach where seedlings will benefit from root treatment with PANAF 4, and thereafter during each hatching cycle with PANAF 1.
