CalciMax

A liquid calcium and boron super-complex derived from plant carbohydrates (contains 8% calcium + 0.5% boron)

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 CalciMax

  • Rapid penetrating action with good absorption of calcium by the plant
  • Liquid formulation is easy to mix and easy to use
  • Contains no nitrogen, sulphate or chlorides
  • Relatively low dosages of CalciMax have proved to be as effective as higher doses of inorganic salts (e.g. calcium chloride)
  • Compatible with most pesticides
  • Safe - good crop tolerance even at bud break on fruit trees
  • Cost effective

Methods of Application

CalciMax 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.
