Dia-Life™ is based on a micronised diatomaceous earth which contains 26% (approx.) silicon in amorphous form (i.e. unlike quartz crystal, there is no risk of associated health problems). Diatomaceous earth (DE) consists of the microscopic, fossilised, chelated remains of diatoms – single-celled aquatic plants. A large part of the plant response is based on silicon, but DE also contains a broad range of micronutrients. DE is also widely used as a bio-balancer by organic growers, due to the abrasive nature of the material.

•Micronisation creates plant-available silicon.
•Silicon increases yield and quality.
•Silicon increases flowering and fruit-set.
•Silicon is a key element for turf grasses, dairy pastures and other grass species like sugar cane.
•Flowering plants respond well to silicon. Roses and orchids love the stuff.
•Boron is included as a silica synergist and for reproductive support.
•Diatomaceous earth is also a renowned bio-balancer.
