Biota Calcium 8%

Biota Calcium 8% is unique because it is the highest concentration liquid organic single nutrient fertilizer on the market. It prevents and corrects calcium deficiencies in a wide range of crops. Due to the unique production process, the nutrients are 100% present in solution and can therefore be taken up directly by the plant through foliar application as well as irrigation. The product is fully made from plant-based materials and approved for use in organic agri- and horticulture. The ingredients are partly sourced from agricultural waste. Due to the natural origin the nutrient content may vary.

Calcium can be difficult to absorb for the plant in harsh conditions. In that case it is recommended to supplement with Biota Mino Plus.
