Concentrated calcium foliar fertilizer for improvement of durability and quality of fruits and leaf vegetables
Content: 210 g/l CaO + microelements + natural amino acids
FoliQ ® Amical is a highly specialized calcium fertilizer, used to improve coloring and storability of fruits, especially useful in mass fruit and vegetable production. It is recommended in apple production for pre-harvest application against bitter pit and other apple storage diseases. Best results are observed after previous treatment with FoliQ ® Calmax.
Applied in strawberries it improves their firmness, size and storage ability, and lowers the risk of grey mould. Applied in vegetables prevents physiological diseases caused by the deficit of calcium (e.g. dry peak rot of tomatoes or cabbage necrosis).
It is highly recommended for locations rich in nitrogen or for cultivation where additional nitrogenous fertilization is not advisable.
