CropSIL is a beneficial plant nutrient enhancer produced from silicon that is virtually found in all soils, but not available to plants. CropSIL will strengthen the plant’s cell walls producing stronger healthier plants by improving the uptake and vascular transport of micro-nutrients that greatly improve the mechanical strength of the plant and its resistance to fungal diseases including Botrytis (bud rot) and powdery mildew. CropSil’s patented formulation of stabilized Mono Silicic Acid (MSA), also known as Ortho-Silicic Acid (OSA), is the only form of silica utilized by plants.
The product is very alkaline with a high pH, and can, therefore, be used effectively to raise the pH of hydroponic nutrient solutions. It is highly beneficial to plants at very low rates as a foliar spray or drip. CropSIL can be mixed with other chemical or organic fertilizers and nutrients.
