SW7 is a silicon-based wetting and spreading agent designed to give enhanced uptake of foliar nutrients.
SW7 has an analysis of 60% Si for turf and compatible with a wide range of fertilizers and pesticides and additives.
This product is available in 1L jugs.
When & Why Use It?
Silicon displaces water in plant tissue as desiccation occurs in leaf tissue thereby increasing the plants strength in dry conditions.
SW7 improves uptake of foliar nutrients applied to the leaves and supplies a source of silicon. The absorption of silicon does not reduce manganese uptake, but causes homogenous distribution of manganese in the leaf blade.
Silicon has a structural role but secondarily play a role in preventing the development of certain diseases and deterring pests such as aphids, red spider mite, thrips and whitefly.
Silicon is widely recognized as a beneficial element to many crops. It is transported in the xylem and deposited in the epidermal cells. It complexes with calcium in the cell walls and acts as a physical strengthener and also to alleviate abiotic and biotic stress.
Adding the wetting agent to spray solutions improves the wettability of the leaves.
It helps break the surface tension.
Adding SW7 improves the absorption and drying time of the solution.
What to Expect?
Enhanced growth and development with and upright stature and resistance to lodging.
High tolerance to excess sunlight in the exposed area, which aids in the protection against temperature extremes and excess UV light.
Better tolerance to drought, salinity and toxicity from undesirable metals.
Increased resistance to plant diseases and pests.
Apply at 0.062-0.155 oz per 1000 sq feet.
SW7 is available for use on a wide range of crops, including turf.
