 Miller Calcium Chelate is soluble in water. Add the weighed amount of the powder, slowly, to the bulk of the water and stir or agitate until dissolved. If pesticides are to be used in the spray mix, add them after the Calcium Chelate has dissolved.

 

SYMPTOMS OF CALCIUM DEFICIENCY

Calcium deficiency usually appears in the young leaves and near the growing points of stems and in the roots. The young leaves may be severely distorted with the tips hooked back and the margins curled backward or forward. The leaf margins may show brown scorching or spotting
effects with spectacular die-back of stems near the growing points. These effects are most pronounced in tomato and celery crops.

  • Helps seed germination and root development
  • Regulates the exchange balance of other nutrients
  • Enhances disease resistance naturally
  • Aides in plant recovery as a result of stress
  • Assists in flower production and cell structure

GENERAL INFORMATION Calcium deficiencies are becoming more and more prevalent. They normally appear during the rapid growing, flowering and/or fruiting stages. No source of calcium can completely overcome these problems. Because of the nature of calcium deficiency (growing point disorders), Miller Calcium Chelate should be applied in multiple applications.
