A laboratory test demonstrates that applying silicon to olive leaves promotes their growth

A DAUCO team finds that silicon is a potential means of promoting plant growth, probably by favoring the absorption of nutrients such as potassium

Restrictions on the use of certain agrochemicals, such as fertilizers or pesticides, in the field of agribusiness have boosted interest in looking for alternatives to protect and strengthen crops like olive groves. In this context, a team from the María de Maetzu Unit of Excellence in the Department of Agronomy at the University of Cordoba has verified how an element that is naturally present in the soil, silicon, can be used to bolster the growth of plants by favoring their absorption of potassium.

After a four-year study of Andalusia’s different olive growing regions, a University of Cordoba study concludes that the use of ground cover, in addition to reducing erosion and runoff, slows the loss of organic carbon in soil, outperforming tillage.

After comparing 90 varieties of spelt with 9 varieties of modern, common wheat, a study by the UCO concluded that the marked heterogeneity characterizing the nutritional compounds of the different varieties makes it impossible to state that one species is healthier than the other
