Derived From The Source

Introducing Silica Earth™

Silica Earth™ is a unique composition of volcanic minerals and micronutrients that synergistically work to create one of nature’s most powerful plant nutrients and soil remediators. From garden specialists to professional horticulturalists, plant and soil experts around the world understand the necessary function of silica. Try silica in your garden, farm, orchard, vineyard, greenhouse, or field and see the results yourself!


Ethically Sourced

Silica Earth™ is ecologically harvested from nutrient rich volcanic beds formed thousands of years ago, which contain a matrix of minerals ideal for agricultural use. Nothing is added or adjusted to the original properties of these naturally sourced minerals in order to make Silica Earth™ products.

Demand for a trusted and ethically sourced brand of plant available Silica has reached a critical point. Many sources of Silica amendments are industrial by-products and likely have undesirable contaminants, along with unforeseen consequences to the environment such as soil and water contamination.


Impressive Results

Today, amorphous silica – such as Silica Earth™ – is being rediscovered as a potential essential nutrient input for remineralizing soil and increasing plant vigor. Silica Earth™ may stimulate and increase the beneficial microorganisms in the soil, building healthy soil composition and resulting in synergistic effects for the uptake of nutrients by the plant. When given to plants, Silica Earth™ has been shown to improve growth, increase yields, reduce mineral toxicities, and help plants overcome infections and stress factors like heat, drought, and salinity.


Silica Earth™ Products

Silica Earth™ products are available online and at hydroponic stores & garden supply centers across Oregon starting in 2018.

Silica Earth™ products are an amorphous matrix of minerals for use in soil conditioning and professional plant nutrition programs. Silica Earth™ produces two types of Silica products – Milled and Granular – that can be amended into soil beds, added to soil mixes or compost teas, applied as a top-dress, watered into soil beds, and used for all transplanting. Silica Earth™ products are recommended as a premium input to increase soil microbiology and for building healthy soil composition.


Application

Silica Earth™ for Plants

Silica Earth™ Milled Silica is recommended for use at every stage of plant growth, as part of a regular input into many nutrient management programs, including:

  • All stages of transplanting
  • Amending into preferred soil mix
  • Top-dress or scratching into soil bed at base of plant
  • Added to compost teas or nutrient solutions
  • Foliar applications*

Silica Earth™ Milled Silica can be applied throughout each of the growing cycles, including transplanting, vegetative, and flowering stages. We suggest applying Silica Earth™ Milled Silica once every week during vegetative growth and once every 3 weeks during the flowering stage. Visible results can usually be seen within 30-45 days, depending on the crop, plant growth cycle, and original soil composition.

Be sure to follow all manufacturer’s recommendations for application at every stage of plant growth.

*Foliar application has been used in trial studies and can safely be applied throughout the vegetative and flowering stages of growth. Due to the solubility of Silica Earth™ Milled Silica can be added to nutrient solutions, watered into soil beds or used as foliar application. For foliar application, we recommend using a ¼ inch mesh screen to sift out larger sand particles before mixing 1-2 Tablespoons per gallon of Silica Earth™ Milled Silica. However, please note that plants have been shown to respond better to silica acquired through the root system than through foliar applications.

Silica Earth™ for Soil

Silica Earth™ Granular Silica is recommended at each stage of plant growth as a key addition to most nutrient management programs, including:

  • All stages of transplanting
  • Amending into preferred soil mix
  • Top-dress or scratching into soil bed at base of plant
  • Added to compost teas or nutrient solutions
  • For soil remediation and reclamation

Silica Earth™ Granular Silica can be applied throughout each of the growing cycles, including transplanting, vegetative, and flowering stages. We suggest applying Silica Earth™ Granular Silica once every week during vegetative growth and once every 3 weeks during the flowering stage. Visible results can usually be seen within 30-45 days, depending on the crop, plant growth cycle, and original soil composition.

Silica Earth™ Granular Silica is NOT recommended for foliar application.

Be sure to follow all manufacturer’s recommendations for application rates at every stage of plant growth.
