​​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
