NanoCal Calcium for Plants & Crops

Boost The Calcium In Your Soil For Healthier Crops

Prevent deficiency disorders with NanoCal, a fast-acting calcium soil application with a small micron size. Provide your plants and crops with a continuous supply of calcium to optimise production and make them more resilient against disease. 

Calcium is a critical secondary nutrient for many central plant functions. NanoCal offers foliar or soil-applied slow-release calcium for improved soil health. The 2 micron (max) dry powder formulation is designed to improve poor calcium levels in soils, or where calcium is fixed and not taken up in plants (often due to too much nitrogen in the soil).

NanoCal Improved Calcium Uptake Benefits


Calcium is a critical secondary nutrient in plants. Calcium for crops is an essential additive to ensure optimal growth and health. As calcium does not relocate within the plant, NanoCal serves as a consistent calcium source for application throughout the growing season.

By applying NanoCal, your crops will benefit from:

  • Increased firmness in fruit or flesh
  • Better uniformity in maturity
  • Increased yield and colouring
  • Reduction in calcium deficiency-based physiological disorders, chlorosis, and stunted growth
  • Improved shelf life and storability
  • Increased plant health and resilience at a cellular level

Calcium in the soil also makes for improved water penetration.

    H3: How to apply NanoCal

    NanoCal calcium for agricultural use is designed to be used at low rates to supply calcium to the soil via direct application. The product can also be foliar-applied so that it’s washed off with irrigation or rain into the root zone. NanoCals slow-release calcium for crop suspension is most reactive in biologically active soils or in conjunction with beneficial soil microbes. 

    *Please note that it’s important to include boron where calcium is applied.

Frequently Asked Questions

Calcium is an essential element to crop functioning. It is taken up through the fine hair roots of the plants. Any calcium applied to crops needs to be made highly available to plants to correct deficiencies. NanoCal’s micronised particle size addresses some of the shortcomings of larger-sized particles found in other calcium sources, and is thus one of the best sources of calcium for plants.
