Silicon is one of the most important fortification nutrients for plants. Until now, it has been inefficient to try to deliver Silicon to plants. Often Silicon (Silicate) formulations are high in pH and not compatible with other nutrients. Plants store Silicon in the Opaline form, which is the form of plant-derived Silicon provided in PRO N SILICA. When combined with a plant-derived protein nitrogen, the PRO N SILICA allows Silicon to enter the plant faster and be transported to its final destination inside the plant, strengthening the plant cell walls.
