Dyna-Gro Pro-TeKt® 0-0-3 The Silicon Solution®

Pro-TeKt 0-0-3 The Silicon Solution® is a supplement that supplies silicon and higher levels of potassium to build stronger plant cell walls.


 

Dyna-Gro ProTeKt 0-0-8, Bio Leaf Plant Nutrients, New Zealand

  • Since silicon does not translocate within the plant, it must be applied and made available continually throughout the plant’s life cycle.
  • In hydroponics and container grown plants, Pro-TeKt is a replacement for the silica normally found in soils, though those natural levels provide only slight benefits to plants.
  • Plants supplied regularly with Pro-TeKt experience increased rates of growth and stronger stems.
  • Deposited in a hard, opalene form in the epidermis of leaves and stems, silicon adds mechanical strength and supports plants’ natural defences against insects and fungal infection.
  • Plants become more tolerant to drought, heat, and cold stresses, and will support the weight of dense, heavy fruits, vegetables and flowers.
  • Pro-TeKt can be used as a surfactant and to raise pH.  Pro-TeKt The Silicon Solution is recommended for all plants.

Application Rates

Pro-TeKt is introduced first into the mixing tank/container then add ¾ of the intended volume of water.  Finally, add the other nutrients and top off with the remaining volume of water.  Because a very high pH is required to keep Pro-TeKt concentrate in solution, it is important to fully dilute it before adding other Dyna-Gro nutrition solutions concentrates which have low pH.  Mixing the two concentrates without first diluting them will turn Pro-TeKt into a lump of silica gel!

  • Container Application: Mix at a dilution rate of 1 : 3 000 (3.3ml Pro-TeKt to 10 litres of water) to 1 : 1 500 (6.7ml Pro-TeKt to 10 litres of water) with every watering.
  • Foliar Application: Miix at a dilution rate of 1 : 3 000 (3.3 ml Pro-TeKt to 10 litres of water) o 1 : 1 500 (6.7ml Pro-TeKt to 10 litres of water) and spray directly of leaves.
  • Siphon Mixer: Mix at a dilution rate of 1 : 15 (333ml Pro-TeKt to 5 litres of water) for a concentrated feed solution.
  • Irrigation Injector: Mix at a dilution rate of 1 : 100 (100ml Pro-TeKt to 10 litres of water) to make up an injectable concentrate.
  • Maintenance: Mix at a dilution rate of 1 : 750 (13.3ml to 10 litres of water) with every watering.
  • For outdoor applications in the soil, feed 1 – 2 tsp/gal with every watering.

Note: Because a high pH is required to keep Pro-TeKt in solution, the concentrate cannot be mixed with any acidic fertilizer.  Therefore, apply Pro-TeKt separately when using a single head injector.
