In time, even the best soil becomes depleted as plants take up available minerals. While adding incomplete fertilizers may keep your plants alive, only a complete, balanced source of all the essential elements will produce maximum yields every grower wants. None of our competitors have all the essential macro and micro minerals in a single or even multi-part liquid concentrate. Why use 2-3 parts, when you can use just ONE? No fluff or hype.
Dave Neal, one of the founders and C.E.O. of Dyna-Gro®, ran across a research paper published in the U.K. in 1985 that listed a number of benefits to plants (greenhouse hydroponic cucumbers) that arose from providing the plants with soluble silicate at a concentration of 100 ppm. Silicon is the 2nd most common element in the earth’s crust but nearly all are in the form of insoluble silicates or rocks. Since rocks are not very soluble, in nature plants are typically exposed to silicates in soil solutions at a level of 8 to 10 ppm. Of course, in hydroponic applications, even less is found in the typical water supplies. Having recognized the need for need for a 17th macro/micronutrient, silicon, Dyna-Gro® introduced Pro-TeKt®, The Silicon Solution®, the first soluble silicate product offered to growers. See the product section of our website for more information on the many benefits of soluble silicon provided by Pro-TeKt®, or click below.
