Integrity 9.5% Calcium
Calcium forms an integral part of plant cell structure, serving to cement the pliable pectin layers between adjoining cells. When calcium deficiency occurs, a variety of maladies can occur, including:
- Blossom end breakdown in tomatoes and peaches, which results in necrotic, compress tissue indentations at blossom ends.
- Tip burn and marginal necrosis in lettuce, trees, and grapevines, which produces leaf margins with low integrity which succumb to the elements and die.
- Peach scab, also known as ink spot, which produces unsightly lesions on the surfaces of peaches and other stone fruit.
- Rind puff and crease in citrus fruits, in which the rind separates easily from the fruit, producing an uneven, unattractive appearance.
- Spindle tip needle shoots in trees and vines, wherein the shoots or canes taper to a fine point, making them susceptible to frost and heat.
- Jelly end rot in potatoes, in which pockets of weak tissue develop, often producing misshapen tubers
- Catfacing and button berries in strawberries, with the fruit becoming misshapen and sunken at the blossom end.
- Waterberry in grapevines, in which berries at the tips of clusters become soft and translucent, and succumb easily to environmental stressors.
- Storage breakdown in a variety of fruits, which produces premature tissue deterioration and death, and makes plants vulnerable to secondary pathogens.
By improving the supply of calcium available to plants, trees, and vines, calcium deficiency-related disorders such as the above can be averted.
While many calcium products supply calcium in a form that is not easily absorbed by plants, Fusion 360 Integrity 9.5% Calcium supplies calcium in a form that optimizes bioavailability, and includes compounds that provide superior solubility. By increasing the intake of calcium into plant tissue, Integrity Calcium helps to enhance the health of your crops, producing fruits and vegetables which are firmer, more attractive, and have a longer shelf life.
