CalNit

An 8-0-0 liquid calcium nitrate fertilizer (contains 8% nitrogen + 10% calcium)

Role of Calcium in the Plant:

  • Important to the structure and permeability of cell membranes
  • Helps prevent cell injury and necrosis
  • Is a determining factor in fruit quality
  • Delays ripening of fruit; extends storage life suppressing ethylene production
  • Reduces storage rot

Signs of Calcium Deficiency:

  • Irregular leaf margins
  • Spotted or chlorotic areas on leaves
  • Distortion or reduced size of youngest leaves
  • Failure of terminal growth and root tip development
  • Visible in storage tissues of fruits and vegetables; causes cells to collapse
  • Internal disorders, internal browning

Advantages of CalNit

  • Liquid - totally water soluble dissolving instantly and remaining in solution
  • Creates an acidic spray solution which promotes nutrient uptake
  • All nitrogen present in nitrate nitrogen form for quick uptake
  • Contains calcium for healthy cell wall development and promotes terminal growth
  • Contains an ideal ratio of calcium to nitrogen and boron for sound plant growth at critical stages
  • Ideal for drip irrigation and fertigation
  • Free of sulphates and chlorides
  • Cost effective

Methods of Application

CalNit can be applied as a foliar treatment in a regular spray program or as a corrective spray. It is suitable for ground or aerial spraying. It can also be used in fertigation through an irrigation system, sprinkler or pivot.
