PANAF 8

GRAFTING

Introducing PANAF 8, a specially formulated liquid designed to accelerate the joining process and expedite healing of grafting wounds. PANAF 8 enhances meristem cell accumulation at the shoot-scion connection, while also helping scion-leaves to continue normal photosynthesis and avoid leaf senescence.

PANAF 8: FOR GRAFTING

  • PANAF 8 as a promotor of, and supporter of stem cell activity was used in grafting as shown below.

  • In grafting process all activities involved are highly dependent on ‘meristem’ (or Stem Cell) activity.

  • The first indication that grafting was successful is when the first scion appears on the upper section of the joint.

  • In the example right we show the first scion after 5 weeks. Standard approach would take 12 weeks or longer.

PANAF 8: Nursery Study

The study aimed to investigate the potential of PANAF 8, a meristem stimulator, to expedite the clonal propagation of avocado trees in a commercial nursery. Specifically, it sought to assess whether PANAF 8 could enhance seedling germination and plantlet growth after etiolation, potentially reducing the nursery period. Avocado seeds were treated with various concentrations of PANAF 8, and the effects on germination and plantlet growth were evaluated.

The findings indicate that PANAF 8 treatment did not significantly affect the overall growth of nursery avocado trees. However, there were indications that a concentration of 1:160 PANAF 8 may improve the rooting success of clonal rootstocks, albeit not significantly. Nevertheless, this improvement could be economically beneficial for nurseries. Additionally, drenching plantlets with a 1:20 PANAF 8 treatment, followed by a 1:200 treatment two weeks later, significantly stimulated root growth, potentially resulting in trees with stronger root systems, which could enhance survival and growth post-transplanting.

In terms of seed germination, treating seeds with a 1:20 PANAF 8 solution led to slightly earlier completion of germination compared to untreated seeds. This suggests that PANAF 8 at this concentration may enhance seed germination for nurse rootstocks.

Overall, while PANAF 8 did not significantly shorten the nursery period, it showed promise in improving rooting success and root growth, which could have important implications for tree health and growth in orchards. Further research is warranted to explore its potential as an alternative to traditional rooting hormones like indole-butyric acid and its impact on long-term tree performance.

The study compared the untreated control group with a PANAF 8 treatment at a concentration of 1:40, revealing significant differences in avocado tree growth and development. The PANAF 8 treatment at 1:40 concentration stimulated seed germination, resulting in earlier germination. The treated seedlings showed significantly improved root growth compared to the untreated control group, suggesting that PANAF 8 effectively stimulated root growth, leading to a more extensive and robust root system. 

During the early stages of plantlet growth, the PANAF 8-treated group showed slightly increased plantlet vigour, suggesting a trend towards enhanced plantlet vigour with PANAF 8 treatment. When transplanted into larger bags, the PANAF 8-treated plantlets showed improved root growth, suggesting that the treatment facilitates successful transplanting and establishment of avocado trees in larger containers. However, PANAF 8 treatment did not significantly affect above-ground growth parameters such as tree height, stem diameter, and leaf area, suggesting that while PANAF 8 promotes robust root development, its influence on above-ground growth may be limited or not yet fully realized during the study.
