One of the most advanced nutrient and biological enhancement systems on the market, SOLU-PLKS is a concentrated, organic based product that is formulated with microbial fermentation extracts to extend nutrient availability in the soil.
SOLU-PLKS chelates & releases minerals for foliar applications and encourages the growth of beneficial micro organisms in the soil. It is non-toxic and can be used to mitigate the toxic effects of salt based conventional fertilizers. Overall, it is a soil conditioner, organic nutrient solubilizer, and microbial food, but not a source of biology itself – or source of minerals itself.
You would need to address major nutrient or biological deficiencies in your system, but Solu-PLKS will help you do that quickly and in a way that builds up your soil and microbial systems, so that you can reduce or eliminate the need for purchased inputs (depending on the system of what you are removing and what you are putting back into the cycle).
SOLU-PLKS solubilizes already present positive and negative charged minerals in the soil (from the sand silt and clay that you already have) and chelates them into a plant available form. Most soils have plenty of mineral reserve to grow even the heaviest feeding plants if you look at what is totally available (not just soluble or exchangeable pools). Solu-PLKS allows your plants and microbes better access to those larger mineral stores. This encourages rapid growth of fungi and protozoa (the nutrient cyclers). This, in turn, feeds the plants all of the 90+soil minerals that it needs, whereas the microbes are able to meet the demands of the plants.
Solu-PLKS takes soil nutrients that would otherwise be unavailable and makes them plant available for 90-120 days with just one application. Its unique molecular structure makes it a great stimulant of the more complex soil microbiology of fungi, protozoa, and nematodes. Use it directly on your soil, in foliar application, to pretreat compost, and in compost teas.
SOLU-PLKS offers a dramatic increase in nutrient availability and uptake for your growing environment, especially P, K along with secondary nutrients of S, Ca, Mg as well as micronutrients B, Cl, Mn, Fe, Cu, Zn, Mo.
SOLU-PLKS can reduce inputs of P and K by 30%-50% and inputs of N by 20%-30% in the first season. Subsequent use can result in further reduction or elimination of chemical and/or mineral fertilizer inputs.
SOLU-PLKS is a great choice for foliar applications because it contains natural bio-surfactants that allow soluble minerals to stick to leaf surfaces.
SOLU-PLKS has an extremely small Dalton size of 200 to 300 so it is completely plant available and helps make fertilizer and soil minerals available to the plant for months after its application in the soil.
SOLU-PLKS can stop the trace element ‘tie–up’ caused by Round Up or Glyphosate based products. It is also safe to apply with herbicides, insecticides, fungicides, etc.
SOLU-PLKS is an excellent food source for beneficial soil biology such as bacteria, fungi, protozoa, nematodes, etc. It especially grows fungi and protozoa.

Apply at 1-2 gal/A in the soil in the root zone at planting, transplanting, or before flowering stage of the plant. Use straight as seed coating with Soil Biology Boost (SBB) powder. Important to get consult on rates if application of any fertilizers have been applied to the area manures, organic minerals, chemical fertilizers.
Uses usually diluted:
Soil Application Get it into the root zone!
- Alone as a nutrient and bio-stimulant (1-2 gal per acre normally)
- Applied with fertilizer so that the fertilizer 1) can be reduced and 2) binds with Solu-PLKS so that is is plant and microbe available; greatly reduces tie-up.
- Sprayed full strength on seed as a seed treatment with Soil Biology Boost (SBB) to increase crop quality and yield, and as a disease protection & mycorrhizal inoculant.
- Dripped in furrow with no-till planting
- Dipping transplants into Solu-PLKS (diluted)
- As a foliar feed dissolve minerals with the Solu-PLKS to feed plants through leaf
- As a complement and ingredient to compost tea
- Bound with trace minerals before application to mitigate nutrient tie up (if using herbicide)
Compost & Tea Brewing
- One of the best foods for beneficial biology, especially fungi and protozoa
- Use it to pre-treat compost for fungal growth before brewing
- Use it in the brew
