THE ROLE OF SILICON IN STRESS REDUCTION AND PLANT DEVELOPMENT
Fertilization with silicon plays a crucial role in mitigating the negative impact of stress conditions on crop quality and yield. Gladiator contains high concentrations of stabilized monosilicic acid, which is the most effective plant-available form of silicon. Once absorbed by plants, monosilicic acid is transported through the xylem to the cells of stems, foliage, and fruits. It is then stored in cell membranes, creating a mechanical barrier that strengthens cell walls and enhances the crop's natural defence mechanisms.
Silicon contributes to stress reduction and plant development in three distinct ways:
It acts as a physical barrier in cell walls.
It modulates metabolic defence reactions to stress situations.
It improves the absorption of nutrients in plants.
Silicon serves as a genuine plant strengthener by offering a natural means of prevention. Given that crops often face various stressors, the benefits of silicon are particularly evident during such challenging conditions. Gladiator supports sustainable agricultural practices by maintaining production and quality levels.
