Calcium is as important to plants as it is to humans. It is one of the most common substances in the world next to oxygen and silicon and the majority of calcium exists in the form of calcium carbonate (CaCO3). In Natural Farming, calcium carbonate is extracted from egg shells in which calcium carbonate is the main component by using brown rice vinegar. Through this process, calcium carbonate is changed to water-soluble calcium, which can be quickly absorbed by the crop. It prevents overgrowth of crops, hardens the fruit, prolongs storage period, promotes absorption of phosphoric acid and helps crops to accumulate nutrients. Calcium in water soluble form is efficient and effective in natural farming. Eggshells are very cost-effective materials for WS-Ca.
WS-Ca is used with WCaP, FPJ, OHN and sea water for better taste and more aromatic fruits. It is sprayed on the leaves after the fruits have become large. Use after dilution with water. The basic dilution ratio is 1:1000
