Calcium Nitrate is a good source of both Calcium and Nitrate. Depending on the type of application, you can choose between different grades and formulations. Van Iperen offers you the widest range of Calcium Nitrates. Let’s see which one suits your needs.

Calcium Nitrate: the best Calcium and Nitrogen source

The advantage of Calcium Nitrate is the presence of Nitrogen in Nitrate form (N-NO3). Nitrate is preferred by plants to Ammonium (N-NH4) or Urea (N-NH2).

Ammonium will reduce the pH of the substrate and can be toxic for the plant at high concentrations. Urea is not readily available for the plant. It first needs to be transferred to Ammonium before it can be absorbed. Both Ammonium and Urea are more susceptible for volatilization when applied in dry circumstance.

Next to that, Nitrate is the only Nitrogen source that has a synergistic effect on Calcium and improves its uptake. Therewith Calcium Nitrate supports the plant in the development of strong cell walls, which leads to an improved fruit quality as well as shelf-life. Finally, it reduces blossom end rot in crops like tomatoes and pepper, as well as leaf tip burn in leafy crops.
