Calcium Nitrate enhances uptake of potassium, magnesium and calcium from soil as these are positively charged and fixed in soil. Negative charge of nitrate releases them from soil and thus promotes their uptake as solution of calcium nitrate sprayed on leaves to roots also.
Nitrate increases soil pH a combined effect of increased pH and strengthening of cell walls by calcium controls cluck root disease in all crops.
The nitrate-nitrogen in Calcium Nitrate is readily absorbed by the plant and improves the efficiency of calcium uptake.
The advantages of Calcium Nitrate :
Fully water soluble.
Consists of 100 percent plant nutrients.
Free of sulfate.
Free of chloride, sodium and other detrimental elements for plants.
Suitable for the production of nutrient solutions and for bulk blending.
Calcium Nitrate can be mixed with all water soluble fertilizers, except stock solutions containing phosphates or sulfates.
