Product features

HortiCaltech is the leading calcium fertilizer on the market due to the CaT ™ technology specially developed and patented together with Plant Impact. This technology effectively improves mobility and distribution of calcium within the plant to active growth points in the plant, such as flowers, pods, fruits and leaves. Thanks to this formulation, stronger cell walls are produced and physiological disorders are prevented due to a deficiency of this component (among others, bitter subcutaneous blotch of apples, cracking of grapes, sour and sweet cherries, rot of tomato and pepper, tip-burn in lettuce and strawberries).

Thanks to the active transport of calcium in the plant, much better harvest quality is obtained, resulting in a significantly longer shelf life of products directed to the fresh market. Plantation efficiency is also directly improved by increasing the dry matter and calcium content in vegetables and fruits.

Notes on the use

HortiCaltech can be used in the form of foliar fertilization or through fertigation in all types of horticultural crops. It is recommended to use from the beginning of leaf development until the late stages of fruit and vegetable development.

Recommended doses for single treatment
Fertigation* **
0,15 – 0,2 l/100 l
Foliar*
0,5 – 2,0 l/ha
Foliar (used as calcium mobility stimulant)***
1,0 – 2,0 l/ha

* Target doses for the season are:
– 3 l/ha in the cultivation of potatoes, onions, broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, salads and other vegetables
– 3 – 6 l/ha in strawberries
– 4 – 6 l/ha in blueberries
– 4 – 8 l/ha in soft fruit crops (raspberry, currant, blackberry)
– 6 – 10 l/ha for fruit trees (apple, sweet cherry, sour cherry)
We recommend contacting Szałas agro in order to obtain detailed recommendations for the selected crop.
The dose of the HortiCaltech depends on the specificity of the variety and susceptibility to problems with post-harvest quality.

** When used by fertigation, HortiCaltech should always be added to the A (nitrate) tank.

*** If HortiCaltech is used as a calcium mobility stimulant and any other calcium fertilizers are applied in the form of foliar spraying, 2-3 treatments should be performed in the key stages of calcium uptake, e.g. full bloom, fruit growth, ripening.
