Effects of use: SIL – Org
  • Silicon contributes to increased plant uptake of potassium and calcium by reducing the mobility of aluminum
  • Contributes to an increase in the root mass of plants (in corn up to 30%) which in drought conditions increases the resistance of plants
  • Increases the synthesis of assimilating pigments including chlorophyll which increases the efficiency of photosynthesis
  • Causes saturation of cell walls with silicon compounds with synergy with potassium, causes increased hardness and rigidity of aboveground plant parts and resistance to mechanical damage
  • Silicon accumulated in the cell walls forms protective barriers against diseases (hindered overgrowth of fungal hyphae) and pests ( damage to the pest's mouth apparatus and reduction of their fertility).
  • Influences the polymerization of the cytoplasm (hydration and gelation) by which the resistance to low temperatures increases
  • Catalyzes tannin and phenolic compounds with fungicidal properties
  • Coordinates plant defense responses by inducing stress signals (synthesis of salicylic acid, jasmonic acid and ethylene)
  • Silicon mitigates heavy metal toxicity and regulates the balance of phosphorus deficiency components and excess nitrogen
  • Regenerates plants after pesticide damage
  • Increases fruit firmness and dry matter, sugars and carotene content
  • Contributes to increased sugar concentration in sugar beet
  • Contributes to increased rapeseed oil yields
  • Increases the dry matter and starch content of the potato
  • Improves in the early stages of growth the vigor of corn plants
