DEFENDER CALMAG is a concentrated solution of calcium and magnesium, which is especially formulated to prevent and correct deficiencies of such elements in all types of crops. DEFENDER CALMAG contains free L-amino acids to improve the mobility and accumulation of nutrients within plant tissues.
DEFENDER CALMAG is used as a source of calcium and magnesium in plant nutrition programs. The application of this product prevents and corrects calcium deficiencies aggravated by slight deficiencies of magnesium and boron. The L-amino acids act as chelating agents and simultaneously favor foliar absorption of nutrients and also their root assimilation.
Regular foliar application of DEFENDER CALMAG prevents the effects of calcium deficiencies (apical necrosis, fruit cracking, and early maturation) and magnesium deficiencies (photosynthetic activity reduction). Crops treated with DEFENDER CALMAG have better vegetative growth and higher harvest yields.
System and time of application
DEFENDER CALMAG is recommended for prevention and correction of calcium and magnesium deficiencies as well as stimulation of vegetative growth. Apply using enough water to completely wet all foliage. DEFENDER CALMAG can be used in dissolved in drip irrigation water.
Stability and storage
DEFENDER CALMAG is stable for at least three years since manufacturing date. Store in the closed original container in a cool and ventilated area. DO NOT store for prolonged periods in direct sunlight. Keep away from food, drink and animal feed. Keep out of the reach of children.
Do not mix with products containing phosphorus. For application with plant protection products follow pesticide label directions and make jar test for compatibility.
