Cal Mag Additives

Calcium and Magnesium additives are specialized nutrients designed to compensate for deficiencies in most nutrient and fertilizer schedules. Calcium and Magnesium (often referred to as Cal-Mag) is almost always needed when using pure, distilled, or reverse osmosis water. Calcium and Magnesium are the most abundant minerals in tap water however much of it is not chelated enough to be absorbed by plants. The majority of the PPM, or EC reading, you obtain from a measuring device is cal-mag.

Calcium, an essential part of the plant’s cell wall structure, improves the absorption of other nutrients by the roots and their translocation within the plant. It activates a number of plant growth-regulating enzyme systems; helps convert nitrate-nitrogen into forms needed for protein formation; and contributes to improved disease resistance.

Magnesium also helps to activate specific enzyme systems. Enzymes are complex substances that build, modify or break down compounds as part of a plant’s normal metabolism.

  1. Plant AMP is a chelated Calcium product that also contains a proprietary organic plant "stimulating" ingredient. Calcium is the basis of cell wall development in a plant and the chelated Calcium in Plant AMP is extremely soluble, providing an easily utilized source of Calcium. Plant AMP is 100% organic and can be used throughout the entire growth cycle to optimize a plants growth. Plant AMP is also a fantastic foliar spray, due to it's low molecular weight for uptake, but also because it is very "clean" leaving no heavy build-up or residue on the plant. Plant AMP can also be used in conjunction with our 2 other additives for custom foliar applications. Learn More
  2. Mag-Amped is a pure Magnesium product, combined with an organic surfactant that helps with uptake and overall solubility. Magnesium is essential for chlorophyl production in plants, in turn chlorophyl is the component in photosynthesis, essentially starting the process through collection of light energy. Mag-Amped is a low molecular weight chelate of Magnesium and as such is very easily absorbed by plants. Mag-Amped is fantastic as a foliar spray, having the same low molecular weight and "clean" properties as our other additives. Mag-Amped can also be used in conjunction with our 2 other additives for custom foliar applications. Learn More
