|What is the product?||PARAM-A is a surprising,
new plant bioactivator. It is innocuous to humans, animals, plants and
the environment since all its components are natural plant products.
In the battle against Panama Disease in banana, preventive treatment with PARAM-A activates the natural defence mechanisms of the plant, stimulating the biosynthesis of antibiotics (phytoalexins) when the plant is attacked by the fungus causing the disease, such that the plant mimics the model of incompatible (resistant) banana plant-fungus interaction.
|Results||The application of
PARAM-A to banana produces the following effects:
Significantly earlier flowering.
Increased crop quality and production.
Longer commercial life of fruit.
|Use and dose||PARAM-A is a systemic product. It
can be applied either via the roots (irrigating) or leaves (spraying) or
combined with other plant treatments or fertilizers. The recommended amount
for spray treatment is 100-150 cc. of PARAM-A per 100 litres of water.
In irrigation, use 0.2 cc. per plant.
