Silicon release from Biogenic Amorphous Silica – Turf’s new allrounder

Apart from the dramatic water and nutrient retention capability of Biogenic Amorphous Silica (BAS) known in Australia as Mineral Magic™ there is another well researched benefit that could be equally as significant.

The latest research on biogenic amorphous silica highlights silica’s ability to increase resistance against both biotic and abiotic stressors through a variety of mechanisms.

With turf systems being subject to a barrage of stresses, this increased resistance helps to minimise the occurrence of stress-induced reductions in growth and quality.
