APPLICATIONS AND PROPERTIES
Calcium is an immobile element. Its mobility in the plant is caused by the passive mechanism, the movement of the water. When the stoma in the plant opens up, prespiration starts and the water is pulled upwards. If the stoma remains closed, prespiration does not occur therefore the calcium does not move. Therefore, the deficiency of calcium is seen most when the stomas are closed during the winter months and when the temperature is very high. Amino acids that enable the opening of the stomas have been added to Foliamin-Ca. With the help of these amino acids, the stomas open even when the weather is not sunny. The plants start to prespire and the calcium gains mobility with the movement of the water.
What does Foliamin-Ca provide?
Provides Active Calcium:
– Calcium is an essential compound in cell walls.
– The application of calcium retards maturity and increases fruit preservation.
– Calcium mobility depends mainly on its union with amino acids, the rate of transpiration and the level of photosynthesis.
– The addition of calcium improves soil structure and increases crop tolerance to salinity.
Provides active Boron:
– Boron contribution is related to amino acids.
– Boron is necessary for the formation of pectin in cell walls.
– Boron increases cell fertility.
– The level of plant transpiration is the main phenomenon influencing its mobility.
Provides L-Alfa-Amino Acids from Enzymatic Hydrolysis:
– Amino acids induce stomatal opening, favoring photosynthesis and transpiration.
– Methionine activates the formation of pectin in cell walls.
– Aspartic and glutamic acid form active compounds with calcium, favoring its mobility in the plant.
The symptomatology of calcium deficiency is diverse and varies from simple foliar chlorosis to the necrosis of the fruit. In general, it affects the organs of the plant that have higher calcium demands: meristematic apices and fruit.
