Product Overview

YaraLiva Tropicote, formerly known as Southern AG Calcium Nitrate Prograde, is an excellent source of calcium nitrate for plants. Contains the right amount of nitrogen and calcium that are beneficial for the healthy growth of crops. It is highly effective in protecting growing crops against calcium deficiency. The YaraLiva Tropicote comes in a free-flowing granular formula that is ideal for use on vegetables and annual flowers. It easily dissolves because of its hygroscopic nature and its 90% of particles that are 2 to 4mm. An easy-to-apply water-soluble fertilizer that enhances the strength of the cell wall and prevents the plants from diseases such as blossom end rot, tip burn, and internal rust spot. A supplemental fertilizer that may also be used as a side dressing plus, it improves the uptake of magnesium and potassium. It is ideal for root enhancement and makes calcium readily available to plants. Packaged in a 50-pound bag perfect for professional use.

Benefits of Calcium

The calcium in YaraLiva TROPICOTE results in a better shelf life and higher marketable crop yield due to improved cell wall strength. The improved cell wall strength improves disease resistance, as well. Calcium is also a key nutrient for, and enhances root development.

Nitrate nitrogen

Directly available for plant uptake, nitrate nitrogen results in fast and predictable growth responses. It’s non-volatile nor absorbed to soil particles, leaving it readily available to plants. As the preferred nitrogen source for most horticultural and high value agricultural crops, nitrate nitrogen also improves the plant’s uptake of the cations potassium, calcium and magnesium.

Calcium Deficiency

Blossom end rot in tomatoes, tip burn in lettuce and internal rust spot in potatoes are some of the most commonly seen symptoms of calcium deficiency. Calcium uptake takes place passively through the transpiration stream, and it is essential that a fully water soluble supply of calcium is available in the rootzone when plants need it most.
