Agrosil LR 0-20-0 (+20% Silicate)

A unique pre-seed fertiliser that keeps phosphate completely plant available and so of maximum benefit to emerging seedlings, perfect for establishing mixtures on sand based rootzones.

Description carrat-down

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 5 cm 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 30 cm. 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 essential fertiliser for sand based pitch constructions.

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 5 km/hour. Walking faster or slower than 5 km/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.

Product Questions

I only require 2.5kg. Is there any way you can supply smaller quantities of this fertiliser please?

Unfortunately this is sealed off site and cannot be broken down. Fertiliser will last a number of years if kept in cool and dry conditions.
