Silica is known for its rigid properties. Should a plant be under attack by fungus, silica is mobilized to the infected site to harden the surrounding tissues and help prevent the development of the disease.


  • High cation exchange capacity (CEC)
  • Better retention and uptake of nutrients as well as an ability to absorb and release large amounts of moisture.
  • Improved cell structural strength, reducing the incidence of lodging (weaken stems & roots)
  • Improved resistance to pathogens and insect attack.
  • Improved photosynthetic activity.
  • Reduced drought and heat stress.
  • Reduced salt stress by inhibiting sodium absorption.
  • Improved utilization of applied fertilizers, particularly nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium.
  • Alleviates toxicity of iron, manganese, cadmium, aluminum, and zinc.
  • Improves microbial activity.
  • Improve soil texture.
  • Increase the stability of soil organic matter.
