One of the most neglected soil nutrients is Calcium. Calcium is essential for all plants, and it actually is a nutrient transporter. Many other essential nutrients “catch a ride” into the root systems of plants by attaching onto the Calcium molecules.
At AgriGro we recommend frequent fertilization rather than feeding your plants once or twice a year.
For Lawns we recommend 6oz of Super-Cal per 1000 square feet of lawn every six weeks. (Lawns are really heavy feeders.)
For fruits and vegetables we recommend a soil application before planting at 12-16oz per 1000 square feet. This should be done once in the spring and once in the fall. During fruit development, you will get good results from an additional foliar feeding. We recommend applying Calcium as a foliar spray at a rate of 1-2 oz in 1 gallon of water and misting evenly onto the surface of the leaves.
Sometimes our plants give us a clear cry for Calcium. Tomatoes, peppers, and squash often develop blossom end rot. This is one of the most common signs that your plants are not getting the calcium they need for fruit development. (this can be from inconsistent water, but it is more likely that it is a Calcium deficiency) Super-Cal will provide a natural and same season pivot to help correct this calcium deficiency and enable you to get a crop back on track. Lime and other forms of calcium are great, but they are not soluble enough for nutrient uptake.
For flower gardens we recommend preparing your soil before planting at 12-16oz of Super-Cal per 1000sq feet. To use Super-Cal as a foliar treatment, apply 2oz of Super Cal to one gallon of water and mist the plants evenly.
