2017 – SPECIAL OFFER
SILICON FOR SUSTAINABLE AGRICULTURE,
FOOD QUALITY & SECURITY
There are a number of learned books on the effects of silicon in agriculture but few are addressed to the grower and agronomist in a simpler, practical and technical/application sense. Application information centres on bioactive, plant available silicic acid.
While there are many formulations including silicon salts and diatomaceaous earth, the fact that the bioactive, plant available molecule is always monosilicic acid, overcomes any comments concerning the book’s sponsorship.
If agriculture (all sectors) are to fully benefit from the application of silicon-based formulations, the KEY is education. Teachers, students and extension services should start presenting SILICON alongside Calcium and NPK because of the very wide ranging effects of silicon in support of sustainable agriculture, food quality and security.
The book ‘Silicon Solutions’ could be used as a ‘primer’ for course work in agricultural universities and colleges. See pdf files:
This offer is addressed in particular to the agricultural sector in India which in 2017 is the host country to the VII International, Silicon in Agriculture Conference, at the University of Agricultural Science, Bangalore, 24 – 28 October. In this context there has been a blossoming of International conferences on the use of Biostimulants, throughout the world. www.silicon2017.com
Also in Bangalore, earlier, from the 5th – 8th September 2017, the “International Symposium on Horticulture: Priorities and emerging Trends” will be held at the ICAR – Indian Institute of Horticultural Research at Bangalore.www.intsym.com.
