Nutri-Key Calcium Shuttle™ sequesters, chelates and delivers more nutrition than previously possible. With its small molecular size, chelation speed is increased. Calcium is the "trucker" of all nutrients so it helps to increase the uptake of all nutrients. Calcium is the main constituent of cell walls and membranes and is essential for cell elongation and, therefore, required at all stagest of plant growth. Calcium plays a role in cell structure and strength; it regulates other plant nutrients and subsequently has a huge impact on fruit quality, shelf life, °Brix and pest and disease resistance.
Nutri-Key Calcium Shuttle™ contains 9.6% calcium, as well as balanced "background nutrients" to help avoid problems association with shortages triggered by excesses. Background nutrients include nitrogen, potassium iron, zinc, manganese, boron, molybdenum, cobalt, sulphur, copper, magnesim, sodium, silicon, and carbon as a shuttle chelator.
Nutri-Key Calcium Shuttle™ should be foliar applied. Small crops, turf and vines should be treated at a rate of 1-2 L/acre while orchard crops should be treated at 2 L/acre. Soil applications can be made at between 2-4 L/acre. For specific rate and application guidelines, please refer to the product brief.
The products we offer are designed to be used together as part of a full-year nutritional program. For more information on use, application rates and timing for specific crops contact Agriculture Solutions today.
