Caliber

Foliar-Pak® Caliber calcium carbonate is easily solubilized and ensures that the calcium is rapidly available for root uptake or absorption to soil cation exchange sites.

Foliar-Pak Caliber calcium carbonate is finely milled, consistently processed to a size of less than one micron. This ultra-small particle is easily solubilized and ensures that the calcium is rapidly available for root uptake or absorption to soil cation exchange sites.

In the Plant:

  • Calcium plays an active role in the uptake of water and nutrients.
  • Calcium strengthens cell walls and works as a signal messenger, helping activate natural plant defense mechanisms.
  • Calcium reduces or prevents infections by increasing cuticular thickness and cell turgor pressure.
  • Calcium protects the plant by acting as a buffering agent against stress caused by soil toxicity or extremes of acidity or alkalinity.

In the Soil:

  • Calcium has the ability to displace sodium ions on the soil colloid, and also buffer salts that may be present in the root rhizosphere.
  • Calcium helps to push the soil platelets apart, creating a more suitable environment for aeration and root growth.
  • Calcium is important in maintaining proper base saturation levels.
