MOSA - Modes of action

1. Strengthening of cell-wall, strategically build-up silicon layers: mechanical barrier

  • Anti Stress and better behavior in conservation/post harvest
  • Mechanical barrier against pathogens and insects
Second Layer under cuticule
Treated Plant – Untreated Plant

2. Mineralization enhancer avoids antagonist action of nutrients

  • Better absorption of minerals & Improve mineral content in the crop
  • Improved internal structure of fruits and vegetables for better shelf life and less transport damage

3. Enhances plant defense mechanisms

  • Less Agrochemicals and Residues
  • Mineralization enhancer avoids antagonist action of nutrients

In Aspergus , K levels in soil were to high, which results in poor Magnesium and Calcium uptake.

By adding 4 x 250 ml/Ha of MOSA to the program, Kalium uptake was slowed down, resulting in better uptake of Calcium and Magnesium.
