“PLANT of HEALTH” Silica with Potash Liquid SUPER Concentrate SILICA with the benefits of POTASH Silica is another word for Silicon and, in plants, it is present in amounts equivalent to, or higher than, elements like Calcium, Magnesium or Phosphorus. This is interesting as Silica is rarely written about in publications and its important role in plant nutrition is now being researched more and more. Recent experiments show that plants deprived of Silica are structurally weaker, more prone to pest and disease attack, and are more susceptible to heavy metal and salt toxicities among other things. Silica has also been recognised as important in human health with researchers including Louis Pasteur predicting the importance if silica to human health. Researcher, Norbert Duffaut, spent 30 years researching and developing organic silica. Silica, in rocks, commonly occurs as the mineral quartz and in the soil it exists in 3 forms: reactive, colloidal & suspended particles (ie sand) Reactive Silica dissolves in water to form silicic acids which are the forms in which Silica is taken up by plants. Once Silica is incorporated into a cell of a plant it is immobile and cannot be redistributed around the plant, therefore if all tissues are to benefit from its presence, it needs to be in constant supply. Furthermore assists in the uptake of nitrogen, potassium, zinc, magnesium and other elements. “Plant of Health” Silica Foliar spray are easy to use products that contain the highest amount of Plant Available Silica mined in Australia couple with the added benefits of Potassium. Regular use of Silica Foliar Spray ensures a constant supply to all your plants and vegies and should be used in addition to your usual fertilising programs.
