DYNA-GRO’S unique Pro-TeKt formula is an easy to use liquid concentrate that provides supplemental potassium (3.7%) and silicon (7.8%).
The latest research proves that plants benefit in many important ways from supplemental soluble silicon. These benefits include greater tolerance of environmental stresses such as cold, heat, drought, salinity, mineral toxicity or deficiency, improved growth rates, accelerated root development on cuttings and improved resistance to insects and fungi.* Soluble silicon promotes natural fungal defense mechanisms in plants, significantly reducing, and in many cases eliminating entirely, the need to use fungicides.* When applied with a fungicide, silicon substantially improves the efficacy of the fungicide.* Silicon, deposited in epidermal cell walls, enhances plants’ resistance to insects. The resulting increased mechanical strength in epidermal cell walls enhances leaf presentation to light and improves stem strength. Soluble silicon enhances metabolic functions and plant growth rates by balancing nutrient uptake, distribution and transport and increasing the concentration of chlorophyll & RUBP carboxylase in leaves, resulting in improved pollen fertility, fruit and flower count.
Pro-TeKt Application Rates:
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.
Recommended Crops: All indoor potted plants including potted flowering, annual bedding plants, garden plants, perennials, tropicals and succulents.
