|Composition||Nitrogen (N), Calcium (Ca)|
|Purpose||Calcium nitrate contains both calcium and nitrogen, which are nutrients plants require to survive. Calcium is vital for some plants to be able to produce seeds, and it also helps a plant to produce a better quality of fruit with a longer shelf life. Calcium is also an important element in the formation of plant cell walls, and the proper availability of calcium in a plant will help to ensure cell walls are strong, protecting the plant from disease and stressors.|
|Application||To use calcium nitrate fertilizer as a disease preventative, or to balance out the nutrient levels in your plants, use one tablespoon of calcium nitrate to every 4 litres of water.|
|For fruits||a foliar spray will be the best way to treat the plant. This ensures the calcium is absorbed by the plant as quickly as possible. Mix up your calcium nitrate fertilizer, then spray it generously on the fruits and foliage of your plant. Repeat this process two or three times a week throughout the growing season.|
|For fertilization and disease prevention||as a top dressing or side dressing, as a more slow-release option. To top dress the plants, you can use calcium nitrate fertilizer in its solid form. Use around half an ounce of salts for each square foot of soil, working it into the top inch of soil around the plants and taking care to avoid it coming into contact with any of the plant's leaves.|
