We would like to highlight a case study that was conducted on silica in 1976 by Dr. Haruto Miyake, a researcher from Kyoto University, a long time before the effectiveness of silicon was recognized in the industry. The necessity of silicon nutrients in plants was originally discovered by Sachs in 1862. Dr. Miyake conducted a comparative experiment on plants with a lack of silicon and plants with a sufficient supply of silicon. As shown in the figure above, there was a significant difference in the degree of growth between the two.
