Fast Dispersible Granulated Organic Soil Conditioner
100 % Organic Input Approved by
BIO-धरा live silica is Organic Soil Conditioner is amorphous Silicon based soil enricher, conditioner that supplies plant available silica to plant. It improves nutrient efficiency of other fertilizers by absorbing nutrients and slowly releasing them when required. It increases water retention and provides improved aeration in soil. Plant available silica actively boosts plants ability to withstand stresses from disease, insects and environmental pressure. Collectively these benefits of BIO धरा live silica increase yield and quality of crops and plants. Active Silicon is basically amorphous silica. This is the only growing medium that energizes and actually feeds your plants. Although Silicon is an abundant element but it is mostly locked up in crystalline form and plant available Silica is only available from amorphous Silica.

Brief reasons about the benefits of BIO धरा live silica
Increased root development
Enriched with micro-nutrients, Increases Growth and Yield, Rich source of plant available Silicon (PAS), High Cationic Exchange Capacity, Structural strength in plants for reduced lodging and pest attack, Improved photosynthetic activity, reduced drought and heat stress, Alleviation of salt stress, and Improved plant defense
Improved Crop Yield and Quality
The soil conditioning and silicon benefits of BIO धरा live silica are evidenced in improved yields and quality of a variety of crops, as well as reduced fertilizer requirements. BIO धरा live silica increases crop yield by 25-40%. As for low-fertile soils, crop yield can reach 25-40%. The application BIO धरा live silica results in an increase in a great number of important properties such as sugar, vitamins and antioxidants and promotes the scent of fresh fruits and vegetables. It Improves N.P.K. use efficiency, also increases water holding capacity and Improves soil aeration and porosity
By reducing leaching, the environmental impact and the requirement for chemical fertilizers are both reduced.
Protection of plants against insect pests and fungal infections without adverse environmental impact
BIO धरा live silica helps to activate plant DNA for the synthesis of specific and nonspecific enzymes and proteins to protect against any stress (diseases, fungal diseases, insect attacks, viral diseases, drought, heat, salt or aluminum intoxication, short-term freezing, etc.).
Increased plant resistance to salt intoxication
Due to the natural defense mechanisms of plants against salt intoxication, it is possible to use irrigation water with high salt content. Application of Active
Silicon in regions with a high risk of secondary salinity can completely prevent salt accumulation in the soil and at the same time allow for the use of poor quality water.
BIO धरा live silica Benefits to SOIL
BIO धरा live silica increases the buffering capacity and adsorption properties of soil and also helps to reduce plant iron and aluminum toxicity – something which is especially important for acidic soils. BIO धरा live silica also contains enough potassium to meet all plant nutrition requirements. It also helps retain water molecules and positively effects soil phosphate levels by mobilizing hard- phosphates, especially in sod-podzolic soils.
Unlocking Soil Phosphorous (P)
BIO धरा live silica will significantly reduce the application rates of conventional fertilizers, while maintaining or even improving crop yield. This is due to the cationic exchange capacity of the BIO धरा live silica retaining and making available ammonium and potassium ions, and the active silicon releasing locked up phosphate. One of the key benefits of BIO धरा live silica in the soil is in unlocking phosphate ions. BIO धरा live silica releases active silicon in the form of monosilicic acid, which preferentially binds to soil particles, freeing up phosphate ions and making these P ions available for plant uptake.
BIO धरा live silica – The Stress Element
The substantial body of evidence confirms that BIO धरा live silica is taken up and deposited in the plant, enhancing the plant’s ability to deal with both biological and environmental stresses more recently, Silica has been found to play an active role in biochemical processes in the plant, enhancing the plant’s own natural defenses. This rich source of plant available silica is well documented, it stimulates. Self-Acquired Resistance (SAR) in plants increasing their resistance to disease. Studies show the slow release of soluble silica promotes, stronger, healthier, higher yielding plants that can mature more quickly. This is the only growing medium that energizes and actually feeds your plants.
Neutralization of aluminum toxicity of acidic soils
The BIO धरा live silica content of BIO धरा live silica soil amendment strongly binds with movable aluminum to form aluminum silicates. Silicon ameliorants are more efficient than liming materials.
Eco friendly media
In its non-crystalline form, BIO धरा live silica is a non-toxic, non-hazardous and environmentally friendly media. It will not swell, expand or contract and acts as an efficient thermal insulator. Thereby helps plants to sustain extreme weather conditions.
Improved drought resistance and reduction in consumption of irrigation water by 40-50%
Field studies conducted in the U.S., Australia and the Middle-East have proven that BIO धरा live silica helps plants to store moisture and provides optimum silicon nutrition, thereby helping plant cells to function properly under water stress conditions.
Lightweight and highly absorbent BIO धरा live silica can absorb up to 120% of its own weight in water and nutrient, and releases it back to the plant as required. It minimizes leaching and run-off and significantly reduces watering.
BIO धरा live silica provides excellent lateral movement of water and nutrient throughout the media, it insulates, aerates and promotes capillary action and because it is multi-faceted, air is able to penetrate to the plants root zone without difficulty.
BIO धरा live silica can be used as a 100% hydroponics growing medium, and/or can be added to any other growing medium as well. (eg. Soil less mixes, coco fiber, etc.)
BIO धरा live silica recycles as excellent ground cover mulch which enhances aesthetic presentation without the decay which happens with barks and mulch ground covers. Active Silicon when applied dry is a proven non- chemical, environmentally safe pest control.
From orchids to grapes, all greenhouse vegetables and fruit BIO धरा live silica provides an inexpensive, lightweight quality growing media for any horticultural need.
Recovery and continuous improvement of fertility of agricultural soils
BIO धरा live silica together with microbes, provides optimal conditions for the improvement of the physical, chemical and biological properties of soils, increasing water adsorption and water retention capacity and optimizing structure and mineralogical composition. In addition, BIO धरा live silica also increases the resistance of soils to wind and water erosion.
