PAF Liquid Plant Enhancer

 

a synergistic mix of organic acids and compounds for plants and soil.

Improving macro- and micro-nutrient availability.

Organic acids in Persist™ PAF, including acetic, malic, lactic, and succinic acids, have been shown to solubilize and mobilize minerals such as Fe, P, K, and Mg. These organic acids form complexes with key minerals to improve and extend their availability to plants.

In response to stress, plant roots exude Organic Acids — The same OAs found in PAF.

Multiple studies indicate that these Organic Acids, along with the Phenols found in PAF, regulate crucial physiological functions in plants to provide resistance against biotic and abiotic stresses, including drought, heat, cold, salinity, pathogen, insect, UV, and heavy metal stress.

14% Yield Improvement

Strawberry Production Trial (Fall 2022)

Compared to the grower’s standard regimen, the yield of marketable strawberries per acre improved by 14.25%* when adding Persist™ Biochar and Persist™ PAF liquid plant enhancer.

Before planting, biochar was placed in the slot at a rate of 480 lbs/acre. 1% diluted PAF was foliar applied at a total rate of 3.5 gal/acre (four applications total). The trial was conducted by Holden Research and Consulting (Camarillo, California).

* Extrapolated flats per acre compared to the grower’s standard.

72% greater new root growth and a 31% increase in plant weight.

Celery Nursery Trial (Winter 2023)

Two foliar applications of Persist™ PAF were applied during the outdoor nursery trial. PAF positively impacted plant development, including a 72% improvement in bottom root growth and a 31% improvement in total plant weight. The trial was conducted by Holden Research and Consulting (Camarillo, California).

Persist treatment produces 7% more soybean plants per acre and 4% larger plants.

* SynTech Research Group (Jefferson City, Iowa, U.S.A.)
Treatment included a unique blend of Persist PAF liquid and a biochar tea. Two liquid applications were made: One at pre-plant and the second at six weeks after planting.

Broccoli, Outdoor Nursery Trial (Spring 2023)

* Holden Research and Consulting (Camarillo, California, U.S.A.)

A 1% dilution of Persist™ PAF liquid produced 61% greater total plant weight and a 63% increase in root weight. The dehydrated weight of the treated plants increased by 156%.

Application Rates
Use Dilution Rate in Water* Benefit
Naturally Enhance Soil Microbiology (Apply to soil prior to planting/seeding) 1:500 (0.2%) – About 1/2 tablespoon (0.25 fl oz) per gallon. A large and diverse microbiome improves nutrient retention and plant defenses.
Indoor House Plants (small) 1:500 (0.2%) – About 1/2 tablespoon (0.25 fl oz) per gallon. Grow strong and vigorous indoor plants while using less plant food.
Flowers, Herbs, and Ornamental Plants 1:500 (0.2%) – About 1/2 tablespoon (0.25 fl oz) per gallon. Develop more vibrant and productive flowering while using less plant food.
New Seedlings and Early Growth Stage 1:350 (0.286%) – About 2 teaspoons (0.33 fl oz) per gallon. Supercharge seed germination and early plant development.
Leafy Green Crops (lettuce, broccoli, etc.) 1:250 (0.4%) – About 1 tablespoon (0.5 fl oz) per gallon. Increase crop yields while reducing fertilization costs and runoff.
Corn, Soybean, Rice, Wheat, Sugar Cane 1:250 (0.4%) – About 1 tablespoon (0.5 fl oz) per gallon. Increase crop yields while reducing fertilization costs and runoff.
Grapevines, Fruit and Nut Trees, Orchards 1:100 (1.0%) – About 3 tablespoons (1.5 fl oz) per gallon. Increase crop yields while reducing fertilization costs and runoff.
Strawberries, Blueberries, and Tomatoes 1:100 (1.0%) – About 3 tablespoons (1.5 fl oz) per gallon. Improve yields and develop stronger fruit skins, helping to reduce spoilage.
Turfgrass (lawns, golf courses, parks, etc.) 1:250 (0.4%) – About 1 tablespoon (0.5 fl oz) per gallon. Create vibrant green turfgrass while reducing fertilization costs and runoff.

* Follow the application methods, rates, and coverage areas as prescribed by your specific nutrient and fertilization regimen.  Do not apply PAF more than once every two weeks.  As an example, a dilution rate of 1:500 means one-part PAF diluted with at least 500 parts of water.

Home Gardeners:
Get More Out of Your Plant Food

Add one teaspoon of Persist PAF per gallon of diluted plant food for optimum results.

It’s estimated that plants absorb only 30-45% of the nutrients in fertilizer.

The organic acids in PAF improve the bio-availability of key nutrients while increasing populations of beneficial soil microbes.
