GROS Silicon is a liquid organic and mineral fertilizer with silicon, potassium and amino acids. It is recommended for foliar nutrition of the crops which are sensitive to silicon deficiency.

Silicon is an auxiliary nutrient in plant nutrition. In a plant it binds into a silicate-galactose complex, thus it makes influence on metabolism, strengthens cell walls, normalizes the flow and distribution of manganese in the plant, eliminating its possible toxic effect. Silicon fertilizers have the highest efficiency on organogenic soils and in rice growing. Silicon fertilizers can increase heat resistance of plants.
