Cal-Max was developed to provide the additional calcium, magnesium and iron that plants require during rapid growth.
Without these nutrients, fast growing plants can quickly develop completely preventable deficiencies, which can cause small, poor-quality crops if left untreated. Supplementing with Cal-Max virtually eliminates numerous defi ciencies such as blossom end rot in tomatoes & peppers, Bud abort, tip burn in lettuce & cabbage, and yellowing of leaves are controlled or prevented. During periods of high temperatures, plants can develop nutrient deficiencies, even when nutrients are available to be absorbed through the rhizosphere. Cal-Max can easily provide the additional calcium, magnesium and iron to support peak production as a foliar spray option during periods of low nutrient uptake. The addition of low molecular weight humates increases the availability of nutrients to the plant, assisting the applied elements to enter the plant through the most effective metabolic pathways. Cal-Max can be used once a deficiency has been detected, but is most effective when used as a supplement to your nutrient solution before you encounter preventable deficiencies. Cal-Max should be used in addition to your regular fertiliser feeding schedule to prevent/ correct deficiencies and helping create the greenest garden possible. For those growing in coir fiber, Cal-Max is appropriate for both charging and conditioning the medium on a weekly basis to ensure an abundance of nitrogen and calcium which are both deficient in coconut pith.
