  • ​​​Be a voice to the world of silicon’s benefits and in moving silicon forward globally
  • Be an important space for posting newly published research
  • Provide contact information for researcher collaboration and knowledge transfer
  • Provide announcements about important events for members
  • Provide a pool of researchers based on crop/region and area of expertise
  • A forum to ask questions about silicon and get answers from the experts
  • A forum for the society to affect symposium topics with other scientifically recognized organizations so that researchers aren’t split up between different scientific disciplines but have a home for all silicon researchers to present
  • Provide information on all international and regional conferences on Si in agriculture

​​We seek new members to share our goals and vision. 

You can be a part of the silicon solution by joining ISSAG today.

​​Researchers have determined numerous plant benefits from silicon. They have found that Si:

  • Increases photosynthesis & yields
  • Increases disease resistance
  • Increases pest resistance
  • Increases drought & salt tolerance
  • Increases flood tolerance
  • Increases nutrient balance
  • Increases UV tolerance
  • Increases high & low temperature tolerance
  • Increases carbon sequestration
  • Reduces heavy metals uptake
