Calcium Nitrate

Calcium nitrate is 100 % water soluble complex fertiliser consisting of 15.5 % nitrogen (N) in readily available form and 18.8 % calcium (Ca). Calcium is one of the secondary nutrients important for crop production and has role in improving colour, lustre and quality of fruits; soil structure and water infiltration in soil and protection against pests and diseases.

As per FCO (1985) Calcium Nitrate contains:

  • Total Nitrogen ( Ammonical and Nitrate form) % by weight, minimum 15.5
  • Nitrate Nitrogen as N % by weight, minimum 14.4
  • Water Soluble calcium as % by weight, minimum 18.8
  • Matter insoluble in water % by weight, maximum 1.5
