Description

Sil-Guard

Phosphite and Silicon - Plant Biostimulant

Guard Your Plants with Sil-Guard 0-2-5

  • Improves Plant’s Turgidity
  • Enhances Crop Quality and Vigor
  • Increases Plant’s Resistance to Disease
  • Strengthens Outer Cell Wall
  • Slows Down Water Transpiration Rate
  • Boosts Chlorophyll Under Low Light

Flowers and plants grown without adequate amounts of silicon (Si) are weaker, less vigorous, and more prone to stress than plants that receive adequate Si. Silicon deficiencies also manifest themselves post-harvest, when flowers and other crops wilt after cutting. Fortunately, growers can easily protect their plants against low levels of silicon by applying Growth Products' Sil-Guard 0-2-5.

Sil-Guard 0-2-5 with Potassium Silicate and Phosphite is a liquid supplement that provides 7 percent soluble silica (SiO2) plus a variety of other beneficial ingredients, and it has a three-prong approach to improving crop quality:

  • Silica hardens the leaf and strengthens the xylem vessels (stem) of plants. It reduces water loss through transpiration, and is particularly beneficial when a plant is under environmental stress. By hardening the cell walls of plant tissue, silica also enhances a plant's resistance to sucking insects and wards off fungal disease.
  • The potassium phosphite in Sil-Guard is extremely mobile in plant tissue, and hastens the uptake of the silica and other soil nutrients into the stem and leaves. Potassium phosphite also promotes plant health and increases the plant's resistance to disease and pests.
  • Sil-Guard's humic acid provides critical organic matter that promotes plant health and allows the silica and phosphite to work more effectively. Humic acid allows for more efficient nutrient uptake, increases soil microbial activity, and plays part in a host of other beneficial plant and soil processes.

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION:

Sil-Guard is a liquid supplement that contains soluble potassium and soluble silicate, two important elements to help strengthen plant cell walls. Silica hardens the leaf and helps strengthen the xylem vessels (stem) of plants. This is especially important during times of high transpiration which will reduce water loss and environmental stress in both plants and cuttings. Potassium silicate will significantly reduce the effects of salt stress on roots, stems and leaves of plants.

Sil-Guard also contains Potassium Phosphite which promotes plant health and increases the plant’s resistance to disease and pests. Potassium builds carbohydrate reserves. Nutrient uptake is increased through the leaf and root tissue with the addition of humic acid. It can be applied as a foliar application on all plant varieties. A continuous source of soluble silicate is very important to enhance the plants’ resistance to sucking insects and promotes the natural defense to fungal diseases.

APPLICATION RECOMMENDATIONS:

Sil-Guard is used at the rate of 1% solution (1 gal. / 100 gal of water). One gallon of Sil-Guard will treat approximately one acre of field grown crops. Apply every 2 to 3 weeks throughout the season. Application with low volume sprayers is not recommended. Sil-Guard does not have to be watered in. However, you can water it in lightly without affecting the results.

STORAGE & HANDLING:

Store in normal warehouse areas. Keep from freezing.

Mixing:

Dilute at the rate of 1 to 100 in water if possible. Put half the water in the tank and add Sil-Guard. Sil-Guard is an alkaline material with a pH of 12 and should NOT be mixed with acidic or acid-producing chemicals.

The following mixing procedure should be followed after SilGuard has been diluted with appropriate amounts of water. Add products to mix in this order:

  1. wettable powders
  2. flowables
  3. water solubles
  4. surfactants
  5. emulsifiable concentrates.

Be sure to agitate during each addition. Be sure each product is mixed well before adding the next. Apply all of mixture in same day. Always use a jar test before mixing Sil-Guard pesticides and fertilizers in your tank.
