Pro-Silicate is built to protect plants from difficult conditions like high temperatures or drought conditions.
While not considered an essential element for most crops, silica helps virtually all plant species on the planet. Available silica helps plants become more resilient to the environment helping plants achieve maximum yield. It does this through by strengthening cell walls, re-enforcing plant structures to support heavy yields. The stronger cells are also better able to tolerate dry soil conditions and prevent plant wilting during temporary drought conditions.
With two sources of potassium there is the additional benefit of enhancing floral development and fruit ripening. Stronger plants can support the heaviest harvests.
SHAKE WELL before using. Pro-SilicateTM is a strong base and should never be added to nutrient concentrates. We recommend that Pro-SilicateTM be added to the nutrient tank prior to the addition of nutrients.
Soil/Soilless/Water Culture: Mix 2½−5 ml per 4 L of water (½−1 tsp/gal). Check pH and adjust to 5.5−6.5 depending on crop requirements. Agitate well, then add nutrients. If necessary Pro-SilicateTM can be added to the nutrient tank after the nutrients are in the solution. Pre-dilute in a small quantity of water and add slowly while agitating.
