Calcium nitrate fertilisers ensure high value quality field crops

YaraLiva - Calcium nitrate fertilisers

YaraLiva fertilisers are a range of calcium nitrate based fertilisers combining fast acting nitrate nitrogen alongside strength-building calcium and boron, designed for high value quality field crops to improve the size, strength, appearance and importantly marketable yield.

Efficient plant available nutrients

  • Immediately available nitrogen - YaraLiva fertilisers all contain fast acting nitrate nitrogen the preferred N source. Crops respond more quickly to nitrate. It is also more mobile in the soil and immediately available to the crop.
  • Highly soluble calcium - Calcium is present as calcium nitrate which is the most soluble form of calcium, immediately available for plant uptake, unlike other more insoluble forms.
  • Essential boron- Alongside calcium, boron improves the cellular integrity of plants and produce. The synergy with calcium is such that while high levels of calcium can increase tissue stiffness and risk of cracking, boron counteracts this by increasing tissue elasticity.

Healthier more valuable crops and produce

  • Extended shelf-life - Fruit and vegetables stay fresher looking for longer before starting to break down or loose weight and quality earning a reputation for high quality produce and the potential for higher prices.
  • Stronger cell walls - Calcium binds the cells together and plays an important role in the cell structure. Insufficient calcium leads to weaker cell walls and cell collapse.
  • Increased stress resistance - A good supply of calcium helps crops tolerate a wide range of stresses making them less susceptible to disease attacks and minimizes physiological disorders.
  • Higher nutritional value - Calcium has not only a critical metabolic function, but the calcium reserves (bones) are of structural importance for humans.
