Boosting cuttings for exceptional survival and rooting

The OptiBoost vacuum impregnation (VI) technology improves the rooting and survival rate of cuttings. As well as decreases losses of eucalyptus and tropical clone cuttings. There are numerous benefits for the forest industry generated by the OptiBoost method. Including better rooting quality, a decrease in botrytis, acceleration of root formation, and an increase in the nurseries’ capacity.

Numerous benefits for the forest industry generated by the OptiBoost® for cuttings method

Optiboost technology is a symbiosis of two technologies. Vacuum impregnation and nanotechnology. We impregnate the cuttings with a functionalized nutrient solution based on the third generation of patented nanotechnology. 

In the propagation process of cuttings, there are many obstacles. OptiBoost can boost cuttings so they survive and perform better.

OptiBoost solves problems like stress, losses, botrytis, rooting, and other quality aspects.

OptiBoost enables optimization of the propagation process and manages peaks better through the increased cultivation capacity created in the nursery. Scalable to meet customer capacity and needs.

Example of treated vs. untreated cuttings. OptiBoost treated has significant better rooting.

Increased rooting/survival rate

Achieved increase of propagation rate from 15%- to 70% depending on genotype. Best improvement achieves for hard/most valuable cultivated clones.

Indicative results of accelerated growth after planting

Potential for higher photosynthetic ability and nutrient assimilation.

Decrease of Botrytis in the early stage (60 days)

Better Quality

Appearance less wilted, fewer dying leaves, and better color. Improved plant height/growth rate, root collar diameter.

Increased capacities of the nurseries

Comment fonctionne l'OptiBoost ?

L'extrême efficacité de la technologie OptiBoost est due à deux facteurs principaux :

The vacuum infusion applied in the treatment chambers is optimized to enable the perfect amount of nutrient solution to reach the cells of the treated cuttings. The stem and leaves are impregnated with the optimal amount of solution
La solution nutritive – OptiBona, est basée sur la dernière génération de nanotechnologie

The increased storage time might lead to more flexible, cheaper, and more environmentally friendly transportation. The logistics, both at the production farm and at the customer site (greenhouses in Europe), can be significantly improved.

Les pics de production peuvent être mieux gérés puisque les boutures peuvent être récoltées à l'avance et stockées. De nos jours, la récolte des boutures de plantes est généralement déterminée par la demande des clients. Grâce à la méthode OptiBoost, la planification peut être plus efficace, la récolte des plantes peut être organisée en fonction du nombre de personnes disponibles ou par variété.

Le gaspillage peut être minimisé puisque les variétés invendues peuvent être stockées et vendues avec retard lorsque la demande du marché augmente. La méthode OptiBoost® améliore également la qualité des boutures.

L'aspect général, la turgescence et la structure après le stockage, ainsi que le développement et l'enracinement après la plantation sont améliorés de manière cruciale.
