Foliar feeding with calcium (the application of calcium rich fertilizer to the plants leaves) can make the difference between a bumper crop of tomatoes to fruit with blossom end rot, or gorgeous apples to bitter ones. Calcium foliar spray supplies necessary calcium to the plant, preventing leaf necrosis, short brown roots, fungal issues, weak stems and stunted growth (damping off). Using Foliar Calcium on the plants will increase cell division, especially in those rapid growers such as tomatoes, potatoes and cabbage and other vegetables. Foliar Calcium also helps to prevent fungus diseases.
