From Plant Biostimulants
Biostimulant composed of glucosamine silicate, which improves the mechanical resistance of the vascular and epidermal cells of stems, leaves and fruit. This enhances their structural integrity and rigidity and results in stronger and more compact plants, with greater vigour, stability and appearance.
When applied on roots, it leads to an increase in the number of absorbing trichomes in the root, which enhances nutrient uptake and flow. Once absorbed and transported by the xylem, it is deposited (silification process) in the cell walls of the conducting vessels until it reaches the leaves, therefore creating mechanical barriers that strengthen them and make them more resistant.
When applied on leaves, the silicate is deposited between the cuticle and the endodermis in a polymeric and colloidal form, as well as in the stomata. This reduces the transpiration rate by allowing water and minerals to remain available, and leads to greater leaf tissue firmness. The tissues having undergone this process make better use of light energy, as they are able to scatter and eliminate the damaging ultraviolet radiation more effectively.
Glucosamine silicate increases the production of secondary metabolism compounds, such as polyphenols and essential enzymes for an optimal yield and harvest quality.
doses and crops
Citrus, fruit trees
Root applications of 4-5 litres per hectare at budding stage, at the beginning of fruit growth and at the ripening stage. To improve fruit consistency and behaviour during transport and storage, make one foliar application short before harvest at a dose of 250 cc per 100 litres of water.
Tomatoes, peppers, zucchini, cucumber, eggplant, beans, watermelon, melon and strawberry
Root applications of 3-4 litres per hectare at the time of transplanting, at 3-week intervals. To improve fruit consistency and behaviour during transport and storage, make one foliar application short before harvest at a dose of 200 cc per 100 litres of water.
Lettuce, cauliflower, spinach, potato, onion, garlic, leek and celery
Root application of 3-4 litres per hectare from the beginning of vegetative growth, one treatment every 3 weeks.
Foliar doses of 3-4 litres per hectare, with treatments 25, 50, 75 and 100 days after sowing.
Soya and leguminous generally, maize, wheat and other cereals.
Foliar doses of 1 litre per hectare, that can be applied in 2 or more applications, from V4 to R1.
recommendations of use
Since silicate structures in cells are continuously renovating and forming, especially at sites of active leaf and root growth, root applications of strensil are recommended at germination and during the different critical stages of crop growth. Foliar application should be used in colour change treatments and short before harvest.
- Healthier and stronger roots.
- Enhanced nutrient uptake.
- Stronger and more compact plants, with more vigour and a better appearance.
- Leaves and stems more resistant to diseases and abiotic stress.
- Firmer fruit with better post-harvest behaviour.
