The overuse of inorganic fertilisers and pesticides has massively reduced soil biology to the point where the need for silicon nutrition has been established. Plants only take up one specific form of silicon which is silicic acid. To address this Engage developed Sion. At 21% Silicon, Sion is highest available liquid silicon in the world and delivers silicon at such high levels its use rate is only required 0.25-1.0L per hectare. In Vines using Sion regularly will support the optimal growth to strengthen all plant tissues to reduce susceptibility to any stress and reduce susceptibility from pathogen infection, especially powdery mildew and reduce damage from insect predation. Most importantly it works in conjunction with calcium to ensure fruit flesh is dense and the skins develop optimal firmness.
