Improves plant strength
When applied to the foliage Grosil strengthens the plant by forming a two part silicon matrix that acts as a physical barrier. Firstly, it is absorbed into the leaf cuticle where it strengthens the plant structure and secondly, as it dries on the leaf, it forms a layer of silicon crystals on the leaf surface.
For use as foliar spray and via irrigation in horticultural and broad-acre.
Silicate – 262g/L
Potassium – 143g/L
pH – 13.3 – 13.7
SG – 1.31-1.35
Grosil improves leaf erectness, reduces susceptibility to lodging in grasses, and improves photosynthesis.
Crops that have demonstrated beneficial response to soluble silicate include fruit, vegetables, vines, nuts, broad-acre crops.
Optimum results are obtained when Grosil is applied in a regularly scheduled spray program, using a sufficient volume of water to insure complete coverage of all stems and foliage.
Suitable for a wide range of crops via irrigation, soil drench and foliar spray.
OFS recommends the use of a non-ionic surfactant & Humus 26.
Mixing – Add Grosil to spray tank (3/4 full) whilst under agitation. Mix thoroughly before adding other products.
