For many years we have promoted the importance and benefits of Silica, a common but often overlooked element that is essential for soil and plant health.
In recent times industries such as cotton, sugar cane, small crops, turf and even pastures are recognizing the potential benefits of Silica.
Silicon, often referred to as Silica, is just one of many ‘bio-essential’ minerals. Many crops grown here in Australia such as rice, barley, oats, cotton, wheat, rye, sunflower, corn, sugar cane, potatoes, forage crops and small crops all benefit from high levels of silicic acid in their cell tissues.
Soil microbes convert silica to silicic acid (plant available form) for constant uptake by plants.
The benefits of Silica to your crop
Silicates are compounds of silicon plus oxygen with one or more metals. The minerals in NatraMin are in the form of Silicates… calcium silicate, potassium silicate, magnesium silicate etc, providing from 17.3% to 25% Silica depending on the NatraMin blend.
Constant release for optimum benefits
In addition to high levels of Silica, NatraMin provides a broad spectrum of mineral elements which will feed your soil, stimulate microbe and worm activity and result in a better uptake of the silica and other nutrients that are already present in your soil but not available to your plants.
NatraMin can save you money on Lime, Gypsum and Fertilizer costs. Contact AgSolutions on 1800 81 57 57 for more information.
