Calcium Deficiency

Calcium is one of the essential macro nutrients that plants need for healthy growth. Calcium is rarely deficient in soils but the plant may find it difficult to transport in salty soil, humid or cold conditions.

Calcium is usually abundant in soils but plants can have difficulty up taking and transporting it. It is transported in the water transpiration system of plants. In salty soils or in humid or cold conditions plants can find it difficult to move calcium to growing points. Calcium deficiency will appear in younger leaves as dieback and burns and in fruits as rot and marking, because they have a very low transpiration rate

The macro nutrients that plants need in relatively large quantities are nitrogen (N), sulphur (S), phosphorus (P), potassium (K), calcium (Ca) and magnesium (Mg). But plants also need trace elements in small quantities for healthy growth. Trace elements include; iron (Fe), manganese (Mn), boron (B), copper (Cu), zinc (Zn), molybdenum (Mo) and humic acids.
