Silicon (Sі) trace element, improves the substantiality of vegetative organs' mechanical tissues

Silicon (Si) The trace element, the main substance of which is silicon, improves the substantiality of the mechanical tissue of the vegetative organs (shoots, leaves, root systems), affects the flowering, the formation of the ovary, forms the elasticity, stability of the plant cell walls (before the lodging of cereals); improves the photosynthesis process, affects the activity of growth and development of the plant (a powerful root system, increased number of leaves, seeds, increased content of sugars, nutrients in the fruit and the period of their storage); improves the exchange in plant tissues (nitrogen, phosphorus), fructification energy, promotes the absorption of phosphorus (due to effect of silicic acid), increases frost resistance, drought tolerance; increases resistance to stress factors (drought, temperature, condition of marshy ground, salinity), diseases (fungal, bacterial), contributes to yields raise. Silicon improves soil structuring, prevents degradation, becomes available for the plant in combination with phosphorus, iron, magnesium, potassium, nitrogen and reduces the toxicity of heavy metals.

Silicon deficiency: with insufficient amount of silicon, a fragility of vegetative organs (stems) and ovary yellowing appear, some plants (tomatoes) lose the ability to pollinate; the absence of flowering occurs; but it is difficult to detect on the surface the lack of silicon in some plants.

Abuse of silicon nutrition: leads to a violation of agricultural plants' growth and development processes, to the decay of the stems.

Silicon interinfluence with other elements

Antagonists (overbalance of one triggers a deficiency of another element) Synergist (improve mutual properties of each other) Block the each other interaction (it is not recommended to combine together)

Ukraine has an agrarian orientation of the economy and, in the modern context, one of the most perspective areas for agriculture is the use of organic products, based on the application of purely natural components, that the company AGRO.BIO manufactures and offers – concentrated liquid POTASSIC HUMATE, which helps to restore the natural components of the main active environment – the soil – rationally and effectively.

The soil environment does not always contain the enough amounts of nutrients necessary for plant growth and development, but this disadvantage can be improved by additional fertilization, in particular with POTASSIC HUMATE BALLASTLESS made of LEONARDITE produced by AGRO.BIO. It is an ecologically safe multi-nutrient fertilizer and growth stimulator of organic origin for agricultural plants promoting the increase of soil fertility.

In order to make it easier for you to get an understanding of our products, the articles about potassium humate and multicomplexes are uploaded below.
