Nutra-Sorb® FOSILICA 0-20-26

Nutra-Sorb® FOSILICA 0-20-26 is a new nutrient combination of PO3 phosphite and potassium silicate in a perfect marriage of two powerful plant-stress fighters whose different modes of action work together to enhance turf quality. Phosphite chemically stimulates turf defenses to stress, while silica works to physically harden turf against stress, as well as toughens turf to make it more resilient and faster to recover from physical damage and hard play.

Phosphorous in the form of phosphite (PO3) is radically different from the traditional form of phosphate (PO4). Phosphite (PO3) increases the energy level within the plant by increasing ATP production, the energy storage battery in the plant that powers all physiological functions, such as photosynthesis and new cell development.

Enhancing the Ability to Resist, Repair and Recover

Whether it’s environmental extremes or root and shoot production, turf is in a constant state of Resisting, Repairing and Recovering from some environmental and/or physiological stress. Phosphite (PO3) increases turf’s internal energy reserves and helps it deal with stress conditions that threaten its quality and even survival.

Soluble silica is taken up by the plant and translocated to the leaf area where it is deposited in layers beneath the epidermis. Silica toughens the leaf, acting like armor plates against environmental stresses. The increased mechanical strength improves turf’s resistance and makes the plant less dependent on osmotic pressure for leaf and stem turgidity, resulting in more drought tolerance.

  • Advanced formulation offers significant advantages over traditional N-P-K foliar fertilizers
  • High levels of PO3, soluble silica (Si) and K-PRIME potassium acetate
  • Phosphite (PO3) increases energy reserves to resist stress
  • Soluble silica increases mechanical strength
  • Low-analysis 0-20-26 product for maintaining constant silica and PO3 levels
