In 2016, the field crops application segment accounted for more than 50% share of the global silicon fertilizers market in terms of value.
Silicon is the second most abundant chemical in the earth’s crust after oxygen. Naturally, silicon occurs as oxides and silicates and is utilized as a fertilizer owing to nourishment of crops and resistance to several plant diseases. Silicon plays a large role in plant growth, mineral nutrition, mechanical strength, and resistance to fungal diseases, herbivory, and adverse chemical conditions. Silicon fertilizers help in the development of plant roots, prevent stalk lodging and decrease some abiotic stress, which promotes upright growth of all field or horticultural crops. Silicon fertilizers help plants in retaining other essential micronutrients such as iron, copper, and boron thus improving productivity along with sustainable production of all agronomic crops. Different applications of silicon fertilizer, for example, field crops, hydroponics, and floriculture are expected to exhibit high demand in future. Field crops and horticultural crops are projected to be the top investment pockets owing to increase in consumption of food and demand for healthy & nutritious food among the increasing population across the globe.
Silicon fertilizers are essential elements for plant growth and play an important role in balanced crop nutrition. A silicon deficiency can lead to various diseases in plants such as powdery mildew, septoria and eye-spot, insect pests and others that can reduce the quality and quantity of plants. Silicon enhances the plants ability to resist micronutrient and other metal toxicities such as aluminum, copper, iron, manganese, and zinc, which helps enhance the productivity and growth of crops. Silicon fertilizers find extensive applications in agribusiness, thereby driving the silicon fertilizer industry. The requirement of effective fertilizers is on the rise due to poor soil quality, and therefore, the effectivenessof micronutrients for enhancing the crop yield and productivity with minimum cost have fueled the popularity of silicon fertilizer indirectly among farmers in the recent years.
