Sili-Fert P Two for One Promotion
Maximum natural resistance against biotic and abiotic stress
Tuakau based company AQUASAN INTERNATIONAL are your local distributors of Sili-Fert P, a liquid silicon fertiliser with micronutrients which is applied by spray or irrigation. When correctly applied, this results in the following outcomes:
- Stronger fruits, leaves and plants
- Reduced need for pesticides and other chemical treatments
- Better resistance to drought and salt stress
- Higher yields and more consistent harvests
Your fellow growers have successfully been using Sili-Fert P to increase resistance to fungi and insect hosted infections, while also lowering the vulnerability to nutrient imbalances and toxic chemicals in soil and irrigation water. Further Sili-Fert P has been shown to mitigate the risk of frost damage.
One of the benefits of Sili-Fert P allows the plants to develop their maximal natural resistance against biotic and abiotic stress*. Crops are already under intense pressure from changes in conditions including sudden bursts of intense sunlight and heat after weeks of ‘soft’ weather in glasshouses. Generally, crops will ‘harden’ and become more resilient to this change in weather but the effects of the stress may lead to a weakening of the plants root systems and reduce the natural defences of the plant against fungal, bacterial and insect pressure. This is often the time harder chemicals are used, but instead consider using Sili-Fert P which is 100% soluble and not harmful to plants and humans.
Field Trials performed by Roam Technology, the company that produce Sili-Fert-P, were very successful on the following crops:
Rice, Wheat, Barley, Potatoes, Onions, Sugar Beet, Flower, Cucumber, Tomato, Soybeans, Berries, Apples and Pears.

Explanation of Biotic and Abiotic Stress on Plants:
Biotic stress is stress that occurs as a result of damage done to an organism by other living organisms, such as bacteria, viruses, fungi, parasites, beneficial and harmful insects, weeds, and cultivated or native plants.
Whereas a biotic stress would include living disturbances such as fungi or harmful insects, abiotic stress factors, or stressors, are naturally occurring, often intangible and inanimate factors such as intense sunlight, temperature or wind that may cause harm to the plants and animals in the area affected.
