Pro-TeKt® 0-0-3 liquid supplement supplies higher levels of potassium and silicon to build strong cell walls in plants. The stronger cell walls provide a Pro-TeKt-ive barrier to piercing-sucking insects and invading fungi. Using Pro-TeKt reduces disease and insect problems, increases stem strength and leaf positioning, improve photosynthesis, and increases heat and drought tolerance. Use as a supplement with any complete nutrient formula to reduce applications of insecticides and fungicides for all plants. Note: The soil/water pH may need to be adjusted when using this product.
Maintenance: Mix 1⁄4 to 1⁄2 tsp. per gallon of water with every watering.
Hydroponics: Mix 1⁄2 -1 tsp. per gallon of water for recirculating systems.
Siphon Mixer: (1:15 ratio) Mix 1⁄2 -2 fl.oz. per gallon of water for a concentrate feed solution.
Irrigation Injector: (1:100 ratio) Mix 8-10 fl. oz. per gallon of water to make an injectable concentrate. Apply Pro-TeKt separately when using a single head injector.
Foliar Spray: Mix 1⁄2 tsp. per gal. of water – spray directly on leaves. Note: Spot test plants first for sensitivity to sprays.
Soluble silicon promotes natural fungal defense mechanisms in plants, significantly reducing, and in many cases eliminating entirely, the need to use fungicides. Silicon deposited in epidermal cell walls enhances plants’ resistance to small sucking insects.
The resulting increased mechanical strength in epidermal cell walls enhances leaf presentation to light and improved stem strength. Soluble silicon enhances metabolic functions and plant growth rates by balancing nutrient uptake, distribution and transport and increasing chlorophyll concentration in leaves resulting in improved pollen fertility, fruit and flower count.
