Silene-K is liquid fertiliser of potassium silicate, suitable for all crops, with increased needs for potassium in order to achieve qualitative superior fruits. Potassium, improves the qualitative characteristics of fruits such as, colour, flavour and aroma, sugars content, vitamins B1, C and carotenes, it improves post harvest conservation, while it decreases the undesirable oxalic acid. Moreover, Silene-K is an important source of silicon, an element which increases the tolerance of sensitive crops in the powdery mildew, (vines, cucurbitaceous, cucumber, etc), in Pythium sp. and Fusarium sp., as well as in the infections of plants from insects such as spider mites, whiteflies etc. Usually, silicon’s effect is related to the control of pests and diseases by improving plants resistance mechanisms.
