In trials, our silicon Siphite and SlicKer products have been proven to increase yields by +0.4 tonnes/hectare (Agrochemex wheat trials). Both are extremely flexible products that we can recommend for use on whole variety of agricultural, horticultural and fruit crops, as well as professional turf and amenity grasses.
- Encourages polyphenolic compounds to form in cell walls – this increases cell wall toughness
- Strengthens crop stems and leaf tissue
- Regulates transpiration losses – meaning an improved resistance to frost damage, drought and heat stress
- Enhances cell turgidity
- Increases chlorophyll concentration
- Improves root development and early plant establishment
Further benefits of our Silicon range:
- Proven increase in yields.
- Promotes the production of phenolic compounds. These compounds provide the plants a natural defence against a range of fungi; including powdery mildews, pythium and botrytis and against sucking insects such as aphis and red spider mites.
- SlicKer has a direct effect on increasing the concentration of chlorophyll and RUBP carboxylase in leaves.
- SlicKer also encourages more fruit and seed production, therefore improving yields.
- Low application rates.
- Excellent tank mixer.
