How Does It Work?
Calcium deficiency usually appears in the young leaves and near the growing points of stems and in the roots. The young leaves may be severely distorted with the tips hooked back and the margins curled backward or forward. The leaf margins may show brown scorching or spotting effects with spectacular die-back of stems near the growing points. These effects are most pronounced in tomato and celery crops. Calcium deficiencies normally appear during the rapid growing, flowering and/or fruiting stages. Blossom End Rot is one such example of a calcium deficiency. Calcium Chelate should be applied in multiple applications to help meet the plant’s calcium needs.
