Oro Agri introduces ENCOURAGE® NANOCAL®, a liquid, soil-applied product designed to supply crops with readily available calcium during periods of high demand such as grain or bean formation. Its calcium carbonate particles are milled to an average size of 0.7 microns ─ significantly smaller than the 3-20 micron size of other widely used calcium products. Its sub-micron size is small enough to be taken up by the meristematic region of adventitious roots without requiring additional mineralization like gypsum, limestone or products with larger particle sizes.
“The demand for calcium spikes in crops as kernels or grain start to develop. Even if calcium levels, as a result of a standard nutrient program, appear adequate they may not be at a level to satisfy the needs of the crop’s intense demand during this development. Or the calcium may not be readily available for uptake by the crop’s roots because its particle size may be too large, as is often the case with gypsum or limestone.” explains Riley Reynolds, Sales Director for Oro Agri.
