Calcium where you want it, when you want it.
Calcium is a critical element in the formation of plant cell walls. That is why adequate levels of available calcium help provide a strong turf that can stand up to heavy play and mechanical damage. Unfortunately, plant tissue can easily become calcium deficient, even in soils with adequate calcium levels.
Quelant-Ca is formulated with a balanced proportion of calcium and free amino acids to aid in the prompt absorption within the plant. With Quelant-Ca in your fertility program, you can quickly correct and maintain the calcium levels in your turf, even during times of plant stress.

Fortified with boron to maximize calcium utilization by the plant. Learn more about the technology.
Quelant-Ca Uptake Vs. Calcium Nitrate
Plant calcium concentrations following applications of Quelant-Ca at two rates (0.5 and 0.75 lbs calcium/Acre) and calcium nitrate (1.5 lbs calcium/Acre). Notice how the amino acid complexed calcium found in Quelant-Ca can be applied at lower rates, while increasing plant calcium levels beyond that of a higher rate of basic calcium nitrate.
Quelant-Ca Increases Calcium Concentration in Leaf Tissue
Tall fescue plants were treated with Quelant-Ca at the rate of 2.0 fl oz/1000 ft2 on 10 day intervals for a total of 4 applications. Untreated plants were used to compare levels of calcium throughout the study. Tissue samples were collected and analyzed 24 hours after initial applications, and 5 weeks after the final application.
At just 24 hours after initial applications of Quelant-Ca, calcium leaf concentrations increased 18% compared to the untreated control (Figure1.). Calcium concentrations continued to increase after each application, and remained much higher than the untreated control even 5 weeks after the final application (Figure 2.).
