S-Calate

Restore and Protect Crops and Trees

S-Calate is a liquid ammonium sulfate fertilizer and calcium carbonate fertilizer gives crops two important secondary nutrients; calcium and sulfur. While these nutrients are essential to all crops, some require more than others. When high-calcium crops such as apples, cruciferous vegetables, cherries, and citrus fruits are not reaching their growth potential—or showing stunted growth—additional calcium can help improve yields.

Calcium deficiencies can occur in a variety of ways. Soils with low pH are more vulnerable to calcium deficiency. Other fertilizers and soil salinization can also offset calcium levels. Though calcium is not needed in high amounts, a lack of calcium will quickly stunt plant growth. It is also important to note that calcium is not mobile in the plant. This means the plant can suffer from calcium deficiency at any time in its growth cycle. Since calcium is a key building block in the plant’s cell walls, a calcium deficiency will affect all its tissues, including leaves, stems, branches, blossoms, fruit, and seeds.

S-Calate can be used during planting or during the growing season to correct and prevent calcium deficiencies. The additional liquid ammonium sulfate fertilizer makes it ideal for many crops which require higher levels of both sulfur and calcium to thrive. Since a calcium deficiency is difficult to detect unless damage has occured, it’s ideal to conduct a soil test before planting, and a tissue test before harvest, to accurately monitor calcium levels as well as calcium uptake. Keep in mind that calcium may be present in the soil, but not available to plants.

Have us design a custom nutrition plan for you

An AgroLiquid nutrition plan is dependent on your location, climate, soil conditions, and goals with your crop. All of our tailored programs start with reviewing your soil samples with one of our expert agronomists. After our analysis, our team will provide you with a couple options that will help you meet your goals on a budget that won’t break the bank.

AgroLiquid Scientific Advancements

Plant growth can be stunted by a deficiency in any nutrient, even those required in small amounts. If one nutrient deficiency exists, none of the other nutrients can be used to their full potential. Our agronomists have studied this problem extensively, and developed secondary, micro- and macronutrient fertilizer programs to solve solve i

Flavonol Polymer Technology

This bonds with your nutrients and creates a protective layer that makes up to 80% more of your nutrients available to plants. It sounds like magic, but it’s just science.
