SolisTek 1000W DE Digital Ballast

solistek-kit-mhSolisTek 1000W DE Digital Ballast – 1000/750/600W Dimmable Digital Ballast 120/240v (208V compatible) Multi-Wattage, Multi-Voltage, Dimmable – 8.75A @120v – 4.375A @240v  – Generator Ready!

 

SolisTek DE digital ballast now operates at 100+ kHz frequency, making it one of the highest frequency ballasts available on the market.

The SolisTek DE ballast will operate any double ended lamps (both HPS and MH) at its optimal efficiency. 

The SolisTek Ballast is a digital ballast on a software based platform.  Utilizing Japanese components and unparalleled engineering, SolisTek is able to achieve a less than 1% return rate.

Total Harmonic Distortion (THD): 
SolisTek Digital Ballasts are tuned for minimal Total Harmonic Distortion (THD%).  SolisTek ballasts offer the cleanest burning ballast the industry has to offer.  The results are longer ballast and lamp life and less depreciation of lumen and par output over time.

SolisTek offers true digital light systems for the horticulture industry.
Our ballast boasts exciting new features that are revolutionizing urban gardening:



Ignition Control™:

Sequential lamp ignition technology that will ignite your lamps one at a time based on load stability. This revolutionary technology (not a randomized startup) will actually detect the voltage and amperage frequencies of the electrical circuit and fire lamps when the load is most stable. SolisTek digital ballasts are the only ballast capable of this technology.

Prevent surges and spikes in your electrical environment and stop overloading breakers. When you power multiple SolisTek ballasts, the electrical draw is controlled by our internal software, maximizing your electrical efficiency.

Soft-Start technology are standard in all SolisTek Digital Ballasts.solis-tek_logo

 

SenseSmart™: Pre-ignition self-diagnostic checks, which will check for 8 different factors before attempting to power the lamp.

SenseSmart™ checks for: Open Output, High/low temps (internal), Ignition Failure, Thermal, End of Lamp Life, Overflow Current, Over/Low Voltage, and Short Circuit.

Solis Boost Overdrive:
SolisTek’s overdrive does not harm the longevity of the lamp.  Contrary to industry standards, Solis Boost will only overdrive the lamp by 5%.  Because STK ballasts are rated so efficiently, the extra boost in power will not affect the lamps lumen depreciation or shorten lamp life.

Teaming with Nutrients

teamingAbout Teaming with Nutrients

Just as he demystified the soil food web in his groundbreaking book Teaming with Microbes, in this new work Jeff Lowenfels explains the basics of plant nutrition from an organic gardener’s perspective.

Most gardeners realize that plants need to be fed but know little or nothing about the nature of the nutrients and the mechanisms involved.

In his trademark down-to-earth style, Lowenfels explains the role of both macronutrients and micronutrients and shows gardeners how to provide these easy essentials through organic, easy-to-follow techniques.

Along the way, Lowenfels gives the reader easy-to-grasp lessons in the biology, chemistry, and botany needed to understand how nutrients get into the plant and what they do once they’re inside. (Don’t worry: you won’t have to learn college-level science).

Teaming with Nutrients will make you a better informed, more successful, more environmentally responsible gardener and will give you a new appreciation for the plants you grow.

GeoPlanter Tray Liners

2The Geo Planter tray liner is a very durable and can be used for many years. You will enjoy the benefits of air root pruning creating a better root structure and aeration to the the root zone through porous fabric.

The biggest advantage of using Geo Planter’s tray liner is that it turns your whole tray into a planter bed. This creates growing conditions where roots are not restricted by individual pots and your plants can reach their full potential.

Another significant advantage using the tray liner is that the fabric works as a filtration system. Water can easily drain through the fabric but will not contain undesired medium that could clog up irrigation systems or pumps.

Another big advantage of the tray liner is that it can be used with trellis netting products that Geo Planter now offers.

You can nogeow grow plants that may require additional support to maintain structural integrity. The Trellis netting provides that support and is very easy to add on as an addition to your tray liner.

Mycostop Biological Fungicide

mycostopDeveloped from a naturally occurring bacteria, Streptomyces griseoviridis, Mycostop Biological Fungicide thrives in the root zone of plants.

When applied as a drench or spray the dried spores and mycelium of the Streptomyces culture in Mycostop germinate and begin to grow on and around the plant roots. In doing so they create a biological defense against root infecting pathogenic fungi which cause disease such as wilt and root rot.

Mycostop is used by growers for diseases caused by Pythium, Fusarium, Botrytis, Alternaria, Phomopsis, and to a lesser extent for Rhizoctonia and Phytophthora. It has particularly good activity against Fusarium.

Mycostop has been shown to increase plant vigor and yields even in the absence of obvious root pathogen activity. The explanation is that the Streptomyces produce plant root stimulating hormones (which has been demonstrated in the lab) or the Streptomyces control minor root pathogens which slowly feed on and damage roots.

OMRI Listed for use in organic production.OMRI_Logo

 

DIRECTIONS FOR USE:
Use Mycostop for the treatment of seeds, transplants and established plants. For the treatment of small seedling production apply at a rate of 1 – 2 grams / 1000 square feet. For established plants at 1 – 3 grams / 500 square feet.
