Multi Silica

Organic Liquid Silica

Multi Silica is an organic liquid silica product containing diatoms and various other elements to ensure optimal efficiency and availability of silica to the plant.

This product can be mixed with water and applied through any irrigation system as all the particles in this product are smaller than 20 microns.

Silica is taken up by the roots in the form of bio-available silicic acid (Si(OH)4).
Micro-organisms release metabolites in the form of (HCL) which react with the Si to form silicic acid.
Diatoms provide a good source of silicon (orthosilicic acid H4SiO4).

Size: 1000ml
