What is Active Silicon?
Active silicon is amorphous Silicon based soil enricher, conditioner that supplies plant available silica to plant. It improves nutrient efficiency of other fertilizers by absorbing nutrients and slowly releasing them when required. It increases water retention and provides improved aeration in soil. Plant available silica actively boosts plants ability to withstand stresses from disease, insects and environmental pressure. Collectively these benefits of Active Silicon increases yield and quality of crops and plants. Active Silicon is basically amorphous silica. This is the only growing medium that energizes and actually feeds your plants. Although Silicon is an abundant element but it is mostly locked up in crystalline form and plant available Silica is only available from amorphous Silica.
Benefits of using active Silicon
E It increases plant growth, flowering and fruiting.
E It increases crop yield and quality of crop.
E It is rich source of Plant available Silicon.
E It has high water holding capacity.
E It Neutralize Aluminum toxicity
E It unlocks Phosphate and makes it available to plant.
E It reduces use of conventional Fertilizers from 25-30 %
E It protects plants against insect, pests and fungal infection.
E There is reduction in irrigation and gives drought resistance to plant.
E It increases plants resistance to salt intoxication.
E It increases soil porosity.
E It gives strength to roots and stem of plant.
E It dramatically increases the cation exchange capacity, stimulating the absorption of nutrients.
E Will increase carbon sequestration.
E The results are visible within 15-20 days initially in the form of colour of the leaves which will be darker and growth will be faster as compared to normal crops without Active Silicon.
It can be added in soil before planting, at the time of sowing it can be applied with seed.
For Sugarcane, Rice, Cassava, vegetables and other crops it can be mixed in soil during preparation of Soil.
For Rubber, Tea Coffee and other fruit and flower plantation a small part of it can be applied near roots while sowing and in old plants by digging and applying near roots.
