A liquid fertiliser high in Calcium with synergistically balanced macro and micro nutrients for enhanced early stage plant development.
ROLE OF CALCIUM
Calcium is the primary building block of the cell walls and membranes without which cell division will be adversely affected, and structural stability and permeability of the cell walls will suffer. Calcium is the main transport mechanism for nutrients and boron is the placement of these nutrients in the plant. Results show that increasing available Calcium to the crop promotes longer shelf life, and reduces bruising. Problems such as cracking, splitting, water core, bitter pit, internal browning, blossom-end rot in tomatoes and soft-bottom in melons are avoided.
ROLE OF MAGNESIUM
Magnesium is an essential part of the chlorophyll structure. Magnesium plays a major role in photosynthesis and other plant functions, particularly the uptake and mobilisation of other plant nutrients, specifically phosphorus. Magnesium is very mobile in the plant and deficiencies are seen in the old leaves with inconsistent chlorosis.
Magnesium is an essential part of the ATP activation process that helps in energy storage in cell catalysing various enzyme systems that regulate metabolic processes. Magnesium deficiencies lead to abnormal growth patterns associated with reduced yield and quality.
THE ROLE OF ZINC
Zinc forms an enzyme which produces carbon dioxide and maintains CO2 levels for photosynthesis. Zinc plays an important role in the production of auxins.
THE ROLE OF BORON
Boron is a trace element essential to many functions of the plant. It is actively involved in the transportation of sugars across cell walls, and in the synthesis of cell wall material and the regulation of water within the cells. As a direct effect of boron availability to necessitate these functions, deficiencies of the trace element will result in stunted plant growth and development. Boron is closely linked to the reproductive process of the plant in that pollen production is greatly influenced by the availability of boron. Sufficient available quantities are essential for the production of pollen and for pollen viability.
