POTASSIUM SILICATE POWDER

GENERAL INFORMATION:

Potassium Silicate Powder (Potassium Salt of Silicic acid) is a source of highly soluble potassium and silicon ions. It is used in agriculture. Potassium Silicate Powder forms is easily available to the plant via irrigation or foliar application. It contains a unique blend of silicate with humate to ensure optimum bioavailability and benefit to the plant.

Silicon is also essential micronutrients for plant health.  Silicon helps to make toughens the cell wall for stronger stalks and stems; increased sugar content; reduced heat and drought stress; increased resistance to penetration by fungi, rusts mildews and aphids. Potassium Silicate Powder is more effective in organic fertilizers. It is slow release Potassium fertilizer. Its deficiencies are major Silicon consuming plain like rice and sugarcane. However, such deficiencies are rare except in cases of silica – accumulating crops and highly weathered soils typical of tropical regions. There are numerous studies on the use of silica amendments to control disease mechanically (when applied as foliar spray) and physiologically (when used a fertilizer). Numerous silica and non-silica based alternatives exist, although they may be less effective than Potassium Silicate Powder. 

 

BENEFITS OF POTASSIUM SILICATE POWDER:

·         Potassium Silicate Powder can be applied in any season or when plant requires the potassium ion.

·      It controls fungal disease; it initiates less fungal colonization sites.

·      Protect the plants from Botrytis (grey mold) and Powdery Mildew (PM).

·      It suppresses spider miles, white flies and insects.

·      It decreases climate stress on crops and improve quality of crops.

·      It is an organic fungicide, Insecticide and Miticide (insect control).

·      It improves photosynthesis and raises brix in all plants for fruit repining which removes mineral deficiencies.

·      It also reduces the negative effects of excess aluminum, sodium and manganese.

·      Improves plant growth, increase the yield and quality.

·      Reduce the lodging, decreased plant palatability.

·      It enhances reproduction by improving pollination and increasing pollen fertility.

DIRECTION OF USES:

Apply by spray method and in adequate amount of water that will provide complete coverage of the plants. Use of a non-ionic wetting agent may improve spray coverage of certain hard to wet plants.

Potassium Silicate Powder can be included in a regular spray program on crops and compatibility with other spray materials.

The rate of application will depend on the crop, stage of growth, and severity of deficiency.  The maximum recommended rates are for mature, full-sized plants. Reduce the rates proportionately when spraying smaller plants.

Potassium Silicate Powder is approved as a fertilizer for conventional agriculture, and is used on variety of crops including sugar cane, rice, melons, grapes, wheat, barley, cucurbits, vine crops, ornamentals and hydroponically grown plants. 

EFFICACY:

1% Potassium Silicate is more effective in potato, rice & sugarcane, every week during crop cycle and improve the impressive yield by 20-25%.

Potassium Silicate is a good soluble form of silica & potassium. It is compatible with many fertilizers and also can be used stand alone.

Silica controls the diseases in Rice, Soya bean, and Sorghum by reducing the brown spot presence & also by managing rust disease.

ADVANTAGES:

Potassium Silicate 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.                                                          

RECOMMENDED DOSAGES:        

Apply Potassium Silicate Powder 300-400 grams in 300 Ltr. of water per acre.

 SIDE EFFECTS:

It is not ecotoxic and but highly alkaline and can be harmful to aquatic life if not diluted and disposed of properly. The water soluble silicates are also of low acute toxicity.

It reduces stress from heavy metal toxicity in soils. It helps plants to resist toxicity from phosphorous manganese, aluminum and iron.
