Calcium is one of the most important nutrients since that is found throughout the plant and is essential for its proper development and stability.
It promotes cell elongation, it strengthens the cellular structures, protects the plant from diseases and stress by extreme temperatures. It has an important role in the utilization of other nutrients, so affect the final quality of the plant and fruit, and result in the final crop.
Vegetables (tomato, pepper, eggplant, Zucchini and cucumber) intensive culture, calcium deficiency is difficult to manage and is a problem in the production of vegetables because of the rot of the apex of the fruit causing this deficiency.
The mobility of calcium in plants is limited and calcium deficiency appears in younger leaves and fruit, having a very low transpiration rate. It is therefore necessary to have a supply of calcium for continued growth.
Lack of calcium may be due to different reasons: lack of absorbable calcium in the soil, low level of contributions or lack of assimilation by the plant.
Below are some pictures of a few tomatoes, peppers and citrus affected by the symptom "Peseta", caused by a localized deficiency of calcium in the tissues of the fruit, which can lead to an internal rot.
HYDROCAL is a corrector for rapid absorption calcium, highly valued by farmers who apply to their crops. It displaces toxic salts from the soil accumulated by irrigation water and some fertilizer application and increases the consistency and the coloration of the fruits in the stage of ripeness.
In the vegetables with the shortcomings of this microelement, EDYPRO is recommending the implementation of COUPE REGENERACIÓN first, a dose of 60-80 L / ha and application and subsequently, HYDROCAL via irrigation at a dose of 20 L / has each 15 days.
Applications and dosages depend on the exact situation of the lack of calcium.
