Calcium takes the first place among the basic elements in the soil.

Formed on calcareous base material

In arid soils, calcium can be found in excess to create antagonistic effect on the uptake of microelements.

Turkey lands in general that carry these characteristics, there is no need calcium to the soil fertilization.

However, calcium foliar fertilizers are used in acidic regions.

In addition, the decrease in calcium deficiency in plants, calcium flow to the fruit and storage organs of plants creates problems due to calcium deficiency.

Calcium ions are transported to all plant tissues by water movement from bottom to top in xylem tubes due to transpiration.

If the concentration of calcium ions is low or transpiration in the fruit is low, the amount of calcium ions reaching the fruits is inadequate and symptoms of calcium deficiency are seen.
