Afrikaans translation:parthenote hypothesis
Explanation:
I checked the largest and best sources and I can only guess, and I hope this helps:

It probably has to do with a biological organism found in Greece in ancient times - i.e. at the Parthenon.

The closest I can find is "parthenogenesis" which has the following translations in Afrikaans:

partenogenese, maagdelike voortplanting

The latter re-translates as something close to "first planting" in the sense that the organism has never been planted before.

My major reference is the Tweetalige Woordeboek.
