CAL-6 provides crops with elemental calcium combined with Biofeed’s exclusive Amino-Carbon Technology® ACT. CAL-6 readily enters the plant through foliar or soil application to supplement deficiency by supplying plants available calcium. In the soil, CAL-6 may assist uptake of nutrients into the plant. Application can be combined with pre-emergent herbicides or combined with UAN applications. Sufficient calcium in the leaf may help control heat stress and reduce disease occurrence.

BENEFITS OF USE

  • Key nutrient in cell wall formation and division
  • Required for efficient plant enzyme activity
  • Regulates nutrient flow in the roots and in plant cells
  • Helps regulate function of leaf stomata which aids in managing heat stress
  • Instrumental in limiting plant disease occurrence
  • Enhances fruit ripening
  • Increases shelf-life of most vegetable crops
  • Increases nitrogen stability in the soil

CAL-6 also contains Biofeed’s exclusive ACT® base additive.

APPLICATION

SHAKE WELL OR STIR BEFORE USE.

CAL-6 is highly concentrated for pro-level performance and value. Dilute with water to ensure adequate coverage. Jar test for compatibility prior to final tank mixing with other products.

LAWNS & GRASSES: Foliar apply 1-4 quarts in 25-100 gallons of water per acre, or for smaller areas apply 4-8 ounces in 5-10 gallons of water per 1000 square feet. Apply every 7-10 days or as needed with sprayer.

AGRICULTURE: (NOTE: Tissue test prior to application to determine ideal rates of application to your plant or crop.)

Side Dress: Apply 2-6 quarts per acre along with either UAN or other nitrogen solution.
Drip Irrigation: Inject 2-4 quarts per acre.
Soil Applied: Apply 1-2 gallons per acre along with UAN or other nitrogen solution.
Foliar: Row and Field Crops, Tobacco and Vegetables: Apply 1-4 quarts in 3-10 gallons of water per acre.

TERMINOLOGY

ACT® | L-Form Amino Acids, Carbon, Hydrogen, Oxygen and Nitrogen that are key building blocks in all plant life. Contains freshwater algae.

CALCIUM | The primary function of calcium in plant growth is to provide structural support to cell walls. Calcium also serves as a secondary messenger when plants are physically or biochemically stressed.

FOLIAR APPLICATION | Foliar feeding is done by applying liquid fertilizer directly to the leaves. Plants are able to absorb essential elements through their leaves stomata and also through their epidermis.

NUTRIENT UPTAKE | An active uptake process by the plant roots which requires energy is used to move the nutrients into the root and xylem for transport to the growing tissues.

SOIL APPLICATION | Soil application is a method by which fertilizers are applied on the surface across an entire field. The advantages of the soil application methods are that they are relatively fast and economical.

UAN APPLICATION | Urea-Ammonium Nitrate (UAN) solutions are commonly injected into the soil beneath the surface, sprayed onto the soil surface, dribbled as a band onto the surface, added to irrigation water, or sprayed onto plant leaves as a source of foliar nutrition.
