With the recent approval of small-scale outdoor Cannabis production in Canada, growers will be looking for premium fertilizer and soil amendment products. The yield and disease tolerance benefits of plant-available silicon have been shown across a wide range of crop types. Wollastonite is a proven low cost and easy to apply source of silicon and has been shown to improve tolerance to common crop diseases that frequently affect Cannabis. Specifically, there are many studies showing improvements to powdery mildew, Fusarium, verticillium wilt and botrytis disease tolerance across a wide range of agricultural and horticultural crops from tomatoes to rice. Canadian Wollastonite is an effective cost reducing soil amendment readily available across Ontario. Canadian Wollastonite is looking forward to supporting this new industry to grow the best quality and cleanest crops. We welcome growers to contact us to set-up a trial at a discounted rate.

For more information here is a good summary article about the disease suppressive and physiological benefits of using wollastonite and boosting silicon availability in plants: Wollastonite stands out for plant available silicon and disease suppression

We have started a new section of our silicon and wollastonite research database to profile the disease suppression effects of silicon amendments on our website.  Direct link
