32-Caliber is a nitrogen based fertilizer developed to reduce Nitrogen loss through volatilization and leaching. The addition of a highly soluble form of Calcium (Ca2+) has been added to increase the plants drought tolerance and disease resistance by creating a stronger and healthier root system. In addition Calcium plays a major role in releasing sodium cations from soil exchange sites, allowing the sodium to leach out of the root zone. Calcium reacts in a similar manner on Potassium in the soil, releasing the K+ cations into soil solution where it can be taken up by the plant’s root system.
32-Caliber contains NCapsulate. NCapsulate increases the cation exchange capacity (CEC) of a soil which will inhibit leaching of nitrogen fertilizers. NCapsulate also improves absorption and translocation of nutrients in the plant.
