For the application of a suitable dose of Cal Magnesiana it is advisable to do a previous soil analysis. As a general rule it applies at a rate of 1.5 tonnes of product per hectare.


It should be applied at least 30 days before sowing to allow an efficient reaction in the soil. It is recommended to incorporate with rake.



 


Description

Calcium (Ca) is involved in cell growth, absorption of nutrients, activity of enzymes, transport of carbohydrates and proteins. It is essential in the stability of the membranes providing greater consistency to the tissues, for example causes greater firmness in the stem of the plant. On the other hand, it acts favoring the structural stability of the soil, improving the porosity, the tillage, the nascencia, the irrigation, etc. A calcium deficit stops the growth of the plant and causes chlorosis, loss of chlorophyll.

The importance of Mg in plant life lies in its presence in the center of the chlorophyll molecule (without Mg photosynthesis could not be performed). It also acts as an activator of the metabolism of carbohydrates, fats and proteins and also intervenes in the transport of phosphates. Mg is a moving element within the plant and is absorbed from the soil as the Mg + 2 cation.

Silicon is absorbed by the roots in the solution as mono silicic acid Si (OH) 4 to be accumulated in the epidermal cells that impregnates them in a thin layer (2.5 μm) and when associated with pectins and polyphenols in the cell wall can be effective barriers to water loss, cuticular perspiration and fungal infections; However, as this acid accumulates in the form of silica, even though the effect is almost purely physical, it has been suggested that the association of silicon with the constituents of the cell wall makes them less susceptible to the enzymatic degradation that accompanies the penetration of the cell wall by fungal hyphae.

Under field conditions, silicon can stimulate growth (understood as the irreversible accumulation of dry matter, which is associated with processes of cell growth and elongation) and productivity by increasing the availability of elements such as P, Ca, Mg, K and B, counteracting the antagonism generated in soils with high saturation of aluminum and iron.

Cal Magnesiana is an amendment with basic characteristics that improves the chemical conditions of the soil, particularly the pH, correcting the active acidity of the same. Additionally, it presents conditions of stability and sustainability of soil pH over time, bringing short, medium and long term benefits to the soil.


Our product is strongly complexing of exchangeable aluminum (reserve acidity correction), in a very short period.
