Available in these sizes
Agsil 16H Potassium Silicate, Soluble Silica Powder offers growers these benefits:
Agsil 16H Potassium Silicate, Soluble Silica Powder also aids in resistance to drought by reducing water loss, and in some cases, it may increase growth and yield.
Agsil 16H Potassium Silicate, Soluble Silica Powder, improves leaf erectness, reduces susceptibility to lodging in grasses, and improves photosynthesis efficiency. For turf, this can result in faster, healthier greens and athletic fields. Row crops, vine crops, ornamentals, and hydroponically grown plants can all benefit from potassium silicate supplementation.
Agsil 16H Potassium Silicate, Soluble Silica Powder nutrient composition is approximately:
K = 26.56%
K2O = 32%
SiO2 = 52.8%
Si = 24.6%
O2 = 28.2%
If you take (1) gallon of R.O. water and add (.50) gram of Agsil® 16H you would have 35ppm (K)Potassium and 33ppm (Si) Silica in solution.
Most companies selling Agsil 16H Potassium Silicate, Soluble Silica Powder, will tell you to use it at 50-100ppm when the industry standard is 30-35ppm, even Botanicare® Silica Blast® will yield 30ppm from 5ml/gal at the manufacturer’s recommended dosage.
In our opinion, this is just to get you to buy more Agsil® 16h.
Usage of Agsil 16H Potassium Silicate, Soluble Silica Powder:
CAUTION: Using High amounts of Agsil 16H Potassium Silicate Soluble Silica Powder will cause pH to rise severally.
Some fertilizers CANNOT handle this high pH and will fall out or become useless!!! To avoid this from happening add Agsil 16h Powder Potassium silicate 1st to your reservoir and then pH adjust down with our Phosphoric Acid until a more desirable pH level is reached like 6.0pH.
Now add your fertilizers or plant foods like you normally would, and adjust pH one more time prior to feeding your plants.
Another option is to add all your ingredients to your reservoir/feed tank, let them mix well, and then use Agsil 16H Potassium Silicate Soluble Silica Powder as a pH Up. Basically adding it to the reservoir or feed tank until you’re pH meter tells you you've reached your desired pH level, rather than following the ml/gal recommendation that could cause you to drastically raise your pH
Foliar Spray Option When you foliar spray Agsil 16H Potassium Silicate Soluble Silica Powder you're applying an invisible mask, shield, barricade, pro-tekt, etc. on top of the leafs tissue.
This PREVENTS molds, fungi’s, or bacteria’s from attaching themselves onto the plant. Agsil 16H Potassium Silicate Soluble Silica Powder is also a form of glass, and if you were to look at it foliar sprayed on the leaf tissue with a microscope you would see glass tiny glass shards that will cut/kill any insect that comes in contact with the Agsil 16h silicate particles, so this feature also makes Agsil 16H Potassium Silicate Soluble Silica Powder A GREAT PESTCIDE as well.
Fyi always a great idea to foliar spray around a 6.0pH
