Role of silicon in enhancing the resistance of plants to biotic and abiotic stresses

This is such an important document, thanks for sharing

Sand is silicone dioxide. There's nematodes and stuff that live in pure sand and eat the plant. In small doses they seem to like sand but in large doses it seems terrible for growing stuff except cactus.

Sand is a particular particle size of  a mineral rock. Rock, gravel, sand, silt, clay.
Buy yeah some of them are Silicone dioxide, but a lot of the time it's not pure Sio2, but impurities with other elements. That's what gives Quartz different colors for example.

Research Silicic acid.
That's what the research is mostly investigating since it has a beneficial effect on plants.
