Top Benefits of Applying Calcium

Farmers are seeking new ways to increase their yields. This is why they are more interested in nutrients and minerals. There are many more options than just N-P-K. Now, growers can learn how to improve fertilizer performance, soil quality, and plant nutrition.

The benefits of applying liquid calcium fertilizer to obtain better results are being revealed by scientists.

Here’s why.

  1. Calcium for a Healthy Land

Calcium is crucial for good soil structure. It is an essential part of regulating pH or acidity.

Calcium is essential for soil structure improvement and the creation of healthy soil. It opens the soil to allow water to be better absorbed. Other nutrients are also more easily available.

Calcium is not mobile, so it’s important to have constant supplies.

  • Calcium for Nutrient Uptake

It is responsible for transferring nutrients to the plant.

Calcium is taken in by water from the roots and through the leaves. A good source of calcium can be a catalyst that will help all other aspects of your program to move forward.

  • Calcium for Early Season Growth

Calcium is good for root mass and spring growth. It helps to promote uniformity of plants, which is important for row crops- and forage growers.

Corn should be in its earliest stages, so it doesn’t have any bad days. Calcium is helpful in this regard — even very early, you can notice uniformity of growth.

Bio-Cal can be applied in the fall. We have had great results. It seems like it activates our soils.

  • Calcium for Healthy Plant Tissue

Growers should not go into detail about plant biology. However, they should be aware of calcium as a component of the cell wall and its importance for cell division and the permeability of membranes.

Calcium is needed for the soil. Plants need calcium. This means farmers will need both slow-release calcium and soluble calcium.

How Do Plants Use Calcium?

Calcium is used in the pant.

  • Increase photosynthesis and the production of carbohydrates.
  • Increases Nitrogen Retake
  • The plant’s outer wall (cuticle) is strengthened, making it more difficult to be harmed by pathogens
  • It neutralizes acidity within individual cells.
  • Calcium is required for root growth, development, and the uptake of nutrition.
  • Calcium is used in soil microorganisms for maximum activity.

Plant Calcium Deficiencies

  • Plant growth can be affected by calcium deficiency
  • Chlorosis and insufficient chlorophyll are the results.
  • Stunted root growth and root penetration
  • Reduces the uptake
  • Affect fruit and leaf abnormalities, as well as other issues

There Is No Guarantee That There Is Enough Lime

It is important that soil microorganisms break down lime in the soil before it is available for plants. Your plants could still suffer from calcium deficiencies even if they have enough lime. It often takes 6 to 2 years for lime to be available for plant consumption.

Calcium in lime, however, is not very easily soluble. It doesn’t travel well with soil water and might not have absorbed more than 3/4″. The deeper root zone remains unaffected.

Once calcium settles within the plant, it doesn’t move or relocate. All new plant tissues need calcium. The new calcium required for root growth is necessary when plants shed their roots (grass sheds its roots twice a year). The soil microorganisms can break down the roots, releasing organic matter to be used by plants later.
