Description

Agrosil LR is an electrolyte system consisting of partially dehydrated sodium silicate and phosphate. Phosphate has a strong stimulating effect on the rot. It is, however quickly fixed in the soil and unavailable to plants. Phosphate fertiliser typically only penetrates the soil to a depth of 5cm but roots benefit from a sufficient amount of phosphate at a deeper level. 

Agrosil LR keeps phosphate completely available and carries it down to a depth of 30cm. The mobile silicate particles congregate in the soil to form large molecules and silicate gels. These molecules are full of pores which improve soil structure and promote greater drainage, gas exchange and good health in even the poorest of soils, sandy rootzones, alluvil sand, compost and manufactured soils. 

The silicate gels of Agrosil LR lock up heavy metals such as lead or cadium so tightly that they can no longer be taken up by the plant; this allows growth to be possible again on contaminated sites. Grass plants take up silicate and store it in the cell walls which protect them against infection from fungal pathogens such as fusarium and leaf spot.

The spreader settings are guidelines only. The spreader should be calibrated prior to application to ensure accuracy. The spreader settings are based on a walking speed of 5km/hour. Walking faster or slower than 5km/hour will alter the speed width and application rate. Exact rates are dependent upon the spreader itself and the accuracy of the person operating it.
