There are several symptoms that indicate a calcium defiency in plants, usually defined as "Blosson End Rot". The most common of these are the plants leaves' inability to unfold or emerge. Also, many plants often display a slight yellowish green tint, and in extreme cases, they are stunted. Other symptoms include death of the stem's growing point and root tip. Less severe deficiencies are not visible, but are limiting productioin. In these cases, small amounts of TOMATO-FIX produce significant increases in crop yields.
Deficiencies in calcium are found mostly in acidic,
sandy, peat and muck-base soils. Other types of soils like silt and
clay loams can also be deficient. Certain planting practices and
environmental factors contribute to the lack of available calcium.
These are use of high amounts of potash, drought conditions, and reduction
of soil pH caused by intensive crop production. Agricultural limestone
is used often to increase the soil's pH and as a source of calcium, unfortunately,
the calcium is not in a readily available form for the plants and
may take many years to become available to the plant. This is why
should be applied, TOMATO-FIX
is immediately available.
TOMATO-FIX can be used both as a soil application or a foliar spray at rates of up to two gallons per acre or 19 liters per hectare of cultivation.
TOMATO-FIX is compatible with most herbicides, fungicides, and nitrogen solutions. TOMATO-FIX should not be mixed with phosphate or potash solutions.
TOMATO-FIX is a specially formulated fermented mixture made up of calcium saturated with an organic chelating agent to make it readily available to the plant. Nitrogen is added to act as a carrier to enhance the calcium and nutrient intake into the plant.
TOMATO-FIX contains highly soluble technical nutrient sources and compounds derived from a multiple fermentation process. (+)
