Granular mixed fertilizers do not cake as much as powder mixed fertilizers and
can cause less lust which minimizes product losses. Granular fertilizers delay
the nutrient delivery to the plants until the granules disintegrate completely
and thus ensure nutrients supply to the plant over a long period.
The beneficial effects of Silicon are usually expressed more clearly when plants
are subjected to various Abiotic stresses (Abiotic stresses include high and low
temperatures, salinity, drought, flooding, heavy metal stress and many other
environmental factors) and Biotic stresses (Biotic stress is stress that occurs as
a result of damage done to plants by other living organisms, such as bacteria,
viruses, fungi, parasites, beneficial and harmful insects, weeds and cultivated
or native plants) Silicon is probably the only element which can enhance the
resistance to multiple stresses.
Silicon Fertilizer can be used on grain crops, vegetable, fruit crops, lawns,
turf, floriculture, ornamental plants. Can be mixed with other fertilizers.
Can be mixed with compost fertilizers. Can be applied under mulching
paper. Can be applied by broadcasting.
For grain crops, 25 to 50 kg per acre as per soil requirements. For fruit crops
approx. 100 kg. For vegetables 50 G to 100 G per tree/plant. Can be applied
at soil preparation time and at various development stages of plant.
