Pro-TeKt® 0-0-3 The Silicon Solution®
is a supplement that supplies soluble silicon and potassium to build stronger plant cell walls. Since silicon does not translocate within the plant, it must be applied and made available continually throughout the plant’s life cycle. In hydroponics, Pro-TeKt®
is a replacement for the silica normally found in all soils (typically 5 – 10 ppm), though those natural levels provide only slight benefits to plants. Plants supplied regularly with Pro-TeKt®
at 50 – 100 ppm experience increased rates of growth and stronger stems, silicon adds mechanical strength and supports plants’ natural protection against insects and fungal infection. Plants supplied with soluble silicon become more tolerant to drought, heat, and cold stresses, bear more and larger fruit. Pro-TeKt®
is taken up in the epidermis and cell walls creating a mechanically stronger plant that can support the weight of dense flowers, fruits and vegetables. Pro-TeKt®
can be used as a surfactant and to raise pH. Pro-TeKt® The Silicon Solution®
is recommended for all plants.
- Siphon Mixer: (1:15 ratio) Mix ½ – 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 Application: Mix ¼ – ½ tsp. per gallon of water and spray directly of leaves.
- For outdoor applications in soil, feed 1 – 2 tsp/gal with every watering.
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: Pro-TeKt® is recommended for all plants including all vegetables, herbs and trees.
Potassium (K2O) ……. 3.7%

“I feel obligated to shout out to Dyna-Gro™
products for working as advertised! Had a malfunction in the tent today and temps hit 100 degrees. Luckily I consistently feed my plants Pro-TeKt®
, which helps manage stress during temperature swings! Well it definitely helped today, shortly after I fixed the situation my plants were all praying just as hard as they usually do. Thank you Dyna-Gro™

“This year we trialed Pro-TeKt® on our crop of ornamental Hydrangeas for the Garfield Park Conservatory. We were very pleased with the results. There were significant visual improvements in the quality of our finished product. Specifically, a dramatic reduction in powdery mildew which we had problems controlling in previous years with other products.” Neil Gilbert : Chicago Park District and Garfield Park Conservatory
