PLANT PROTECTION & SOIL FERITLITY
Silicon (SiO2) 10.50%
Seaweed extract (Ascophyllum nodosum) 5.00%
Potassium (K2O) water soluble 4.40%
CELSIL is a fully soluble liquid silicon-based biostimulant formulated along with seaweed extract. Silicon has a double effect on the soil–plant system. First, improved plant-silicon nutrition reinforces plant-protective properties against diseases, insect attack, and unfavorable climatic conditions. Second, soil treatment with biogeochemically active silicon substances optimizes soil fertility through improving physical and chemical soil properties and the maintenance of nutrients in plant-available forms. The effect of silicon on plant resistance to pests is considered to be due either to accumulation of absorbed silicon in the epidermal tissue or expression of pathogenesis-induced host-defense responses. The ability of silicon to form polymers in the cell walls, associated or not with organic molecules such as cellulose, increases its physical and chemical resistance to insect attacks and to degradation by enzymes released by microorganisms. Moreover, CELSIL contains seaweed extract (Ascophyllum nodosum). The natural composition of Ascophyllum nodosum extract includes natural phytoregulator precursors ( cytokinins, auxins and gibberellins ), amino acids, carbohydrates and a large number of nutritive elements. It has a positive effect on plant fundamental physiological processes such as growing, fertility, protein synthesis and sugar translocation among others.
