Agsil 16 H (Potassium Silicate)
Now you can make your own silica product for pennies on the gallon! 560 grams of Agsil 16 in 1 gallon will give you 7.6% silicon (SiO2).
NOTE: Never mix concentrated silica solutions with other concentrated fertilizers. It is best to make up the liquid solution first or add water prior to mixing the powder with other ingredients or nutrients.
When mixing, be sure to add water to the container first. Best practice is to fill the container halfway with water and then add the Agsil before filling the rest of the way and then mixing thoroughly. Remember to wear the proper protective gear (mask and gloves) when mixing and using.
Derived from: Potassium Silicate
Soluble Potash (K20): 32%
Silicon Dioxide (SiO2): 52%
Directions for Use:
Use 1/2 teaspoon per gallon of water as foliar spray, soil drench, or emulsifier.
Recipe for 7.8% Solution:
Mix 148 grams AgSil 16H into 1 liter water. Store in bottle or jar and shake well before use. (1 lb = 454 g). Use this 7.8% solution at 1/4 - 1/2 teaspoon per gallon water.
