Diatom has developed a great line of highly-concentrated silicon products that offer many benefits to agriculture. Some of these benefits include:


  • Increased productivity;
  • Physical barrier formation
  • Increased resistance against toxic elements and against salinity;
  • Improved photosynthesis rate;
  • Increased structural tissue stiffness;
  • Improved plant architecture through accumulation of silicon in the cuticle, avoiding bedding;
  • Improved regulation of water losses from transpiration.


The use of silicon in agriculture has shown successful results in such cultures as rice, soybean, sugar cane, beans, potato, tomato, vegetables, strawberry, cucumber, pumpkin, corn, wheat, grass, ornamental plants, and many others.
