Amino Acid Chelated Mineral for Soil and Foliar Application
/ MSDS / Product Brochure
Biomin Calcium is a bioavailable plant nutrient. Biomin Calcium is created using an encapsulation of the mineral calcium with amino acids and natural organic acids. Under normal circumstances calcium is subject to being tied up by other chemicals in the soil. Our patented process prevents the inactivation of calcium from occurring.
The amino acid and organic acid shells protect calcium from interaction with other chemicals normally found in
the environment. After it is inside the plant, the calcium is released and the remaining amino acids are used by the
plant as a slow release source of nitrogen. Since the nitrogen is slow release, and present in small amounts, it
does not produce unwanted vegetative growth after the flowering stage.
