Calcium (Ca) is a vital element for plant cell integrity and function. Calcium is taken up by plants passively through evapotranspiration with water solubility being key. Forms such as chloride, sulphate and carbonate are slightly dissolvable in water but nitrate is fully dissolved. When in the plant, it is immobile and usually deposited in the young tissue due to higher water loss. Cell division and growth dilutes Ca and therefore a constant supply is essential. When applied in the soil it forms insoluble substances therefore not available, whilst when sprayed on the foliage or through irrigation it is directly delivered to desirable plant parts. Effectively increases Ca absorption resulting in strengthening plant cell walls and induce tolerance to abiotic and biotic stresses. Ca abundance by foliar application of this solution, improves cell functionality and optimises plant physiological processes for growth and development resulting in increased marketable yield, quality and shelf-life.
This UK based SME was established in 2011 with the aim to become a global leader in providing innovative solutions to major issues in agriculture. Research and development is the core part their activities. All technologies are invented in-house and managed by the Director of R&D.
