Calcium-25 contains natural plant wax components that are present on the leaf surface, together with calcium in a carefully-balanced mixture. When this is applied to the leaves of plants in solution with water at the right dilution rate, the plant components are "seen" by the plant as being part of the leaf surface. As a result, the mixture is absorbed by the leaf with the calcium attached. This is then translocated throughout the plant rapidly, unlike any product on the market! The result? A healthier, stronger plant at an early stage of plant development. This carries over to an increase in crop yield.
Always spray at the correct stage of plant growth. Spraying at the early stage increases the number or size of fruit, and is the only effective stage to spray most vegetable crops. Spraying crops, such as tomatoes, peppers, grapes, and leaf crops, is effective at different stages of growth all season, and using Calcium-25 on table grapes up to 2 weeks before harvest is useful to increase shelf life of produce.
Always observe the correct temperature range when using any Calcium-25 product. This is very important, since Calcium-25 can only be absorbed by the leaves when they are growing, regardless of the time of day crops are sprayed. For most vegetables and ornamentals, the temperature for application must be atleast 77 degrees. Cool weather crops (lettuce, onions, etc.) can be sprayed at somewhat lower temperatures.
Slowly mix package contents with agitation until dissolved in 400 U.S. gallons of water. Apply as a foliar spray accoring to the enclosed instructions.
1 level tsp. per gallon
8-oz. cup per 50 gallons
Always dilute the product at the rate of 4 lbs per 400 U.S. gallons with water ONLY. Additives can interfere with the plant's ability to recognize Calcium-25.
Calcium-25 is potent! Only 4 lbs. makes 400 U.S. gallons of spray. It is important to remember that Calcium-25 is a concentration-dependent product. This means it must be diluted to the proper concentration with water so the leaf surface will absorb it as if it were a part of the plant!
Application rate is determined by how long the Calcium-25 can keep the leaves of the plant wet. This can vary with temperature, humidity, wind, and other factors. For best results, always test to see if your sprayer is keeping the leaves wet for about 10 minutes. If not, either slow down, increase pressure, or make adjustments to have a higher spray volume. Also, spraying later in the day is better than early in the morning, since the temperature and humidity are higher, and wind is fairly calm. Bandspraying increases coverage up to 20 acres per 4 lbs of Calcium-25.
