Product Details

Powerslam is a new addition to the Sakata range, specifically selected for African production conditions. It has excellent resistance to Black rot infection, caused by the pathogen Xanthomonas Campestris pv.campestris. Since summer rainfall regions are the ones most prone to Black rot infection, Powerslam is ideally suited to the summer growing season. It has a vigorous, upright growing habit with the head set deep within the frame. The big frame protects the heads very well against sunburn and wind damage. Powerslam matures between 70 and 90 days from transplant.
