PHYTOSIL-SUN (Soluble Silicon)
Soluble Silicon (Mono-Silicic Acid) is the plant available portion of the silica that makes up over 40% of soil chemistry. It is generally present in plant tissues in amounts similar to that of macronutrients (N, P, K, Ca, Mg, S).
Plants grown in soils with low soluble silicon levels have a greater susceptibility to disease, drought stress and other plant stresses
Silicon has been shown to reduce phosphorus leaching while at the same time increasing phosphorus plant availability.
Silicon’s activity in the soil matrix has been proven to improve micronutrient uptake (boron, copper, iron, manganese, zinc) and reduce toxic metal uptake (aluminum) as well as sodium.
Biochemical / genetic role of silicon (Phytosil-SUN)
Silicic acid is absorbed by plants to be continuously transformed into insoluble polymers
???????? Soluble silicon has been detected inside the cell, in the cytosol, in chloroplast membranes as well as in association with RNA and DNA.
???????? This information suggests that silicon can have a series of intracellular sites of action to explain its stimulating properties in plant disease resistance
Where does soluble Si come from, and why do deficiencies occur
Ø Continuous cropping of land, natural weathering, or inherently deficient soils can be causes of deficiency.
Ø Plants take up silicon into their root and shoot tissue, but it is not returned through biodegradation.
Advantage of Phytosil-SUN
Ø Increases cell wall strength
Ø Results in increased wear tolerance
Ø Disease resistance
Ø Insect resistance
Ø More upright growth and rigidity
Ø Increased shoot and root density, resulting in higher yields
Ø Regulates uptake of toxic elements
Ø Increases heat tolerance
Ø Slows transpiration
Ø Increases CEC making other nutrients more available
Role of Phytosil-SUN in Plant Health
Ø Tissue analysis indicates that silicon makes up between 0.2 and 10% of a plants dry weight.
Ø Its association with cell wall proteins indicates an active biochemical function.
Ø It is prominent in cell walls as solid amorphous silica, providing a structural barrier to pathogens.
Ø Studies suggest it is translocated from roots to shoots
Phytosil-SUN hydrolyzes in the soil to form mono and poly-salicic acids, which is theform that takes up by the plants.
Phytosil-SUN gets available in the soil for 12 months, although the majority is taken up in the first 6 months
