Organic Energized Silica Bio Mineral Powder Ecocert listed 55 lbs
Ecocert listed Energized Silica, 40 micron wet-able powder that promotes growing environments by optimizing the aerobic metabolic pathways.
Not a fertilizer, but mined silica that has been non-chemically energized through a proprietary process; when it comes in contact with water it sets up electrostatic charges that oxygenates the environment.
Each micron crystal contains hundreds of hours of electrostatic charges setting up an environment where plants flourish, algae is eliminated, fungal and pathogenic problems diminish. Silica with a pH of 5 - 8 contributes to the absorption of nutrients and amendments promoting catalytic and electrolytic exchanges with soil elements (oxygen, carbon, trace elements, etc.). This results in the development of natural aerobic environment that promotes microorganisms and develops a shield against pathogens.
Hydroponics: 10 gm to 52 gallons of water solution, once every week during growth phase.
Horticulture, Crops in Greenhouses:
Before sowing or at planting: Apply by spraying on soil, approximately one cup diluted in 52 gallons of water.
After 10 days: spray 5.25 ozs in 52 gallons of water; this will cover two acres of cultivable surface.
Every 3 weeks: spray or incorporate into a drip system 5.25 ozs. added into 25-50 gallons of water to cover two acre area.
The value of repetition is important to address the different plant cycles growth and oxygen demands.
Silica's Key Role in Plant Performance
Silicon (Si) has many potential benefits and a sufficient supply aids healthy growth and productive development.
Applied silica interacts positively with applied major and trace elements improving their performance and efficiency.
Silica enhances the plants’ ability to resist or tolerate biotic stress such as attack of insect pests and fungal attacks.
Silica can help reduce water loss and transpiration.
Silicon applications in Turf
One of barriers to the acceptance of silicon as an important nutrient for agricultural production is that it has not been classified as one of the "essential" plant nutrients.
Specific benefits observed due to silicon is extensive:
Direct stimulation of growth and yield
Counteracts negative effects of excess Nitrogen
Suppression of plant diseases caused by bacteria and fungi (Powdery mildew on cucumber, pumpkin, wheat, barley, Gray leaf spot on ryegrass, leaf spot on Bermuda grass)
Suppression of stem borers, spider mites, and hoppers
Silicon builds structural integrity of the plant, making stems and branches thicker and stronger, and leaves greener and tougher. The toughened outer ‘skin’ reduces attacks from aphids and other sucking insects.
