The role of Calcium in plant nutrition continues to grow steadily in importance. A large number of Calcium-related disorders in fruits and vegetables are well recognized. Calcium has also been shown to reduce bitter-pit in apples, corking in pears and apples, internal browning and hollow-heart in potatoes, tip-burn and spotting in lettuce, blackheart of celery, cavity spots on carrots, pops or blanks in peanuts. Properly supplied, Calcium prevents or controls these disorders.
Honeycrisp apples treated with TECH-GRO MIRA-CAL showed an increase in peel Calcium concentration, leading to a reduction in bitter-pit at harvest AND after 90 days of CA storage.
