Potassium silicate is a new type of compound fertilizer. The fertilizer contains soluble silicon 15%-20%, soluble potassium oxide 3%-5%, and may also contain nutrients necessary for plant growth such as calcium and magnesium.
The fertilizer is used in rice, reed, vegetables, fruit trees and other crops, and the yield increase effect is remarkable. Potassium silicate can develop the roots of rice and reeds, strengthen the stems, prevent lodging and promote fullness of the seeds. 80-100 kg of rice per mu can increase production by 10%-20%. When used in vegetables and fruit trees, it can form silicified cells in leaves and peels to prevent water evaporation, increase sugar, and play a role in preservation and disease resistance.
