AgSil 21 is a soluble form of potassium silicate providing the plant a 100% available source of silicon and potassium that are essential for optimum plant growth and health.
Foliar and Soil Available Bionutrient
Silica (SiO2)…………. 26.5%
Derived from Potassium Silicate
Potassium Silicate strengthens the plant’s internal processes and external defenses. AgSil 21 low salt index makes it extremely safe to all crops including sensitive crops. AgSil applied in the soil or foliar aids the plant during periods of drought, extreme temperatures, cold, frost, heat stress, salinity and mineral toxicity (Al,Cd,As,Mn,Fe) and other abiotic stresses. AgSil 21 activates the plants immune system helping it to resist against foliar and soil diseases caused by fungi, bacteria, nematodes, viruses and other biotic stresses. Based on the crop, AgSil 21 should be applied as a foliar spray or to the soil using ground equipment or irrigation systems. AgSil 21 can be incorporated into most spray tank mixes.
Caution: Always add AgSil 21 first to the spray tank water. A jar test is recommended to test compatibility when new or unfamiliar tank mix combinations are used.
GENERAL USE RECOMMENDATIONS
GROUND APPLICATIONS: Apply 1.5 to 3 pints per acre in sufficient water for thorough spray coverage.
AERIAL APPLICATIONS: Apply 1.5 to 3 pints per acre in minimum of 5 gallons of water per acre.
IRRIGATION (Sprinkler, Drip, Pivot): Apply 3 to 6 pints per acre through irrigation system.
Application and Rate Instructions:
TURFGRASS and SOD: Apply 1.5 to 2.25 fluid ounces per 1000 sq. ft. every 7 to 14 days. If turf is under
stress application interval can be increased to achieve desired result.
ORNAMENTALS, NURSERY, GREENHOUSE: Apply 1.5 to 3 pints per 100 gallons of water.
HYDROPONICS SOLUTIONS: Add 3.5 to 7 fluid ounces per 100 gal of water. Resulting mixture
should then be buffered to the optimum pH for nutrient solution and specific crop feeding.
VEGETABLES: Apply 1.5 to 3 pints per acre. For best results apply a minimum of 3 applications.
POTATO and other TUBER CROPS: Apply 1.5 to 3 pints per acre from planting to defoliation for plant
health and to aid in skin set and sizing.
VINES, TREE NUTS, FRUIT TREES: Apply 1.5 to 6 pints per acre. First application at pre-bloom. For best
results apply a minimum of 3 applications.
BUSHBERRY AND CANEBERRY: Apply 1.5 to 3 pints per acre. First application at pre-bloom.
ROW CROPS: Apply 1.5 to 3 pints per acre. Higher rates or more frequent applications may be required to
SUGARCANE and RICE: Apply 3 to 6 pints per acre. For best results apply a minimum of 2-3 applications.
Apply at 28 to 42 day intervals. Higher rates or more frequent applications may be required to correct
SOIL APPLICATIONS: May be made pre-plant, side dress or in irrigation at 3 to 6 pints per acre.
