Calcium mobility technology
Our calcium mobility biostimulant technology, branded under the name CaTTM, optimises movement and distribution of calcium in plant tissue to help improve crop quality and yield, and reduce the risk of calcium disorders.
Key benefits of CaT
- Aids localised calcium movement.
- Provides a more uniform calcium distribution.
- Improves crop quality, storage and shelf life.
- Increases marketable yield.
Why is calcium mobility important?
Calcium is an essential plant nutrient that is used in maintaining cell wall structure and plant membrane integrity. It is principally taken up with water in the plant’s transpiration stream, meaning that organs with low transpiration rates, such as fruits, can get insufficient calcium. This is worse during rapid growth periods when the calcium demand in fruit often exceeds what is provided in the transpiration stream, even if ample calcium is provided in the soil. This leads to calcium deficiency disorders such as bitter pit in apples.
