About Bio Nova
Since the beginning of the 1990s, Bio Nova has been known as a manufacturer of premium fertilizers for all growing and flowering plants. Years of studies and research, combined with practical experience and the deep insights that are gained as a result, have led to unique high-end products . Quality, purity, environmental-friendliness, ease-of-use, high yields and superior end-results are the distinguishing characteristics of these products.
The company’s policy includes maintaining business relationships with external research centres and laboratories. We network with members of the scientific community, whose studies correspond with our interests.
We also maintain contact with the international market for developments and ideas that could lead to better products . And most importantly… we always keep our doors open to customers and invite them to come up with ideas. We listen to their concerns and wishes and respond with products that fulfill their requirements.
The basis for the Bio Nova products encompasses a number of main points. Every line is based on a special application with respect to the cultivation method used.
Bio Nova believes that everyone benefits from and is responsible for a clean environment. This is clear in our products , production methods and in every business decision we make. We make clean, environmentally-friendly and ballast-free fertilizers. And we do much more besides:
- The entire Bio Nova production facility runs on wind energy.
- The Bio Nova buildings are heated with bio-gas.
- Waste products such as paper, wood, metal and plastic are separated, collected and taken away for recycling.
- Waste products are removed in a manner that has been certified to be CO2 neutral.
- CO2 compensation is applied if flights are used for travel.
- All packaging is 100% recyclable.
- As many ingredients as possible are bought on the
- European market in order to limit transport costs but also to ensure the very best quality.
Silution is a plant strengthening liquid fertilizer based on stabilized silicic acid. In recent years there has been a growing interest in the use of silicic acid and its positive effects on plants. The effectiveness of silicic acid in strengthening the plant and stimulating growth and flowering is particularly visible with growers that have less optimal growing conditions such as in greenhouses, indoor crops, growing in warm climates.
Even though silicon can be found in the soil almost everywhere on earth, it is usually not plant available. Most substrates do not contain enough plant available silicon. Mono-silicic acid is the only form of silicon that is plant available. Moreover silicic acid is very unstable, allowing insufficient uptake through the roots. Mono-silicic acid molecules have a tendency to bind together forming ever larger chains (polymerisation), which the plant is unable to absorb. Furthermore silicic acid also binds to other elements such as aluminium, iron, manganese and other minerals, that precipitate in the soil and therefore are no longer plant available as well.
Silution consists of a stabilized and bio-available form of silicic acid. It is a highly plant available and bio-active product that has positive effects on the plant. Silution results in a better harvest: higher yield and a better quality.
Silution’s unique qualities are enhanced and intensified even more with the addition of high-grade and purified biological fulvic acid. This pure fulvic acid not only further stabilizes the present silicic acid, it also stimulates the plant.
The combination of silicic acid and the natural fulvic acid as well as other trace elements such as boric acid and zinc, even further increases the stability and effectiveness.
Because most substrates have a shortage of plant available silicic acid, Silution should be given right from the start of the growing period. Using this stabilized silicic acid will show a significant improvement of the growth. This will be clearly visible in the increased size of the plant’s rooting system compared to control plants. Bigger roots take up more nutrients, which in turn allows the plant to grow better and faster. Because the plant becomes stronger, the plant will be better able to resist external influences.
Silution is the ideal silicic acid fertilizer for drip irrigation systems. A fertilizer schedule using biologically available silicic acid combined with the high-grade fulvic acid results in among others:
- A crop that has a higher resistance against the negative impact of stress.
- Stronger cell walls.
- A stronger defense against temperature differences and/or extreme temperatures.
- A higher quality and yield.
- A higher dry weight content of the end product.
- Combine Silution with the fertilizer scheme throughout the entire growing cycle. Silution is a unique product and is not comparable to other silicon products . This product is protected by a patent.
