PANAF 2

PRODUCT INFORMATION

PANAF 2 is a specially formulated plant nutrient of natural nitrogen, phosphate and potassium together with a host of micro- nutrients, minerals and lipids. It is safe and non-toxic

 

USED FOR:

  • It improves plant tolerance to the destructive effects of severe drought and excessive heat.
  • Enhances the innate defense mechanism of plants.
  • Increases Photosynthesis and Chlorophyll.
  • Increased nutrient uptake and bio-availability.
  • Enhanced plant structure.
  • Production cost reduction.

 

DIRECTIONS

PANAF 2 can be applied through conventional ground equipment, aerial application, or through properly equipped irrigation systems.

Soil Application: 1L per hectare.

Leaf Application: 1L per hectare.

 

ACTIVE INGREDIENTS

Chitosan

 

MIXING INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Use 200 part water to 1 part PANAF 2 - 1:200.
  2. Put 200 parts water in a tank.
  3. Add 1 part PANAF 2 to water in tank.
  4. Mix the water with the PANAF 2.

PANAF 2 BENEFITS

 

  • Increases Photosynthesis and Chlorophyll. The Department of Botany at Northwest University did a comparison of leaf surfaces treated and untreated to assess the effect on Photosynthesis and Chlorophyll. The graph right shows that PANAF 2 (ANODS) increases Photosynthesis 5-fold. This will have a chain-effect on the energy potential of the plant, and its resilience and growth.
  •  Increased nutrients. The tables on the right show the difference in nutrient content of Beetroot, Spinach and tomatoes respectively using PANAF 2.
  • Increases plant structure. The photo on the left shows the enhanced growth of the roots of spinach after 8 weeks.

 

  • Increased crop yield. We have shown above that the maize crop was increased by 29%. The spinach crop was increased by 18%.

 

  • Production cost reduction. PANAF 2 is formulated with natural macro-nutrients of NKP. Due to the liposomal delivery mechanism, these nutrients are transported directly to cells. The amount of chemical fertilizers used can therefore be considerably reduced.

PANAF 2                       Control

PANAF 2 CA

Over the past 2 decades we have seen and experienced climate change in reduced rainfalls, in rapidly increasing day temperatures, and depletion of sub-surface water supplies. The adverse effects of this have become increasingly noticeable on the quality of crop plants. One of the major contributing factors to reduced plant quality is a reduction in Calcium supply to plant shoots, leaves and fruits. Calcium is an essential plant macronutrient with key structural and signalling roles. Calcium ions act as: an osmoticum within vacuoles; a stabilizing element of membranes; a strengthening agent in cell walls; and a secondary messenger for a multitude of signals.

 

Research has shown that plant growth rate is directly proportional to the available calcium and the extent of its presence in cell walls. The uptake of calcium through the roots, and thereafter through xylem is highly dependent upon water intake via roots. Thus, during periods of water deprivation, plants cannot absorb calcium via roots, and consequently will result in a depletion of calcium storage in vacuole cells, and consequently a reduction of calcium in cell membranes, followed by reduction in its signalling/messenger functions.

 

The leaf vacuole is widely considered to be the major Ca store in plant tissues, but this is dependent upon the ability of cells to absorb and de-sorb available calcium.

Global warming and its consequent reduction in water supply has been foremost in the thinking of Panaf, where our objective has been to help solve to-morrow’s problems today. This is where the ANODS delivery vesicle is a wonderful tool in alleviating drought-induced plant deficiencies. ANODS will encapsulate water soluble calcium (calcium nitrate), ANODS display rapid trans-foliar penetration and also rapid absorption through cell membranes, where the calcium is released into the mitochondria and find its way to the vacuoles for storage and release for whatever purpose it is required. The effect is increased plant vitality regardless of water supply.

Clearly, this formula is not aimed at soil modification of pH.
