Understanding Calcium Fertilizers: Sources and Availability

Understanding calcium fertilizers is crucial for promoting healthy plant growth. This page explores the availability of calcium from different fertilizer sources and how water influences their effectiveness in delivering this essential nutrient to plants. The role of water is pivotal in facilitating the release of calcium from sources like gypsum and lime. However, calcium nitrate is unique in offering immediate availability, regardless of rainfall. By integrating these insights into nutrient management practices, farmers can optimize calcium nutrition, ensuring healthier and more productive crops across various agricultural environments.

Calcium Nitrate


  • Overview: Calcium nitrate is a water-soluble fertilizer commonly used to supply calcium and nitrogen to plants.

  • Availability: Calcium ions (Ca2+) are readily released from calcium nitrate when it dissolves in soil moisture, providing an immediate supply of calcium to plants.

  • Role of Water: While water facilitates the dissolution of calcium nitrate, its availability is not solely dependent on rainfall. Calcium ions are released whenever soil moisture is present, ensuring continuous nutrient availability to plants.

Gypsum (Calcium Sulfate)


  • Overview: Gypsum is a calcium fertilizer with relatively low solubility compared to calcium nitrate.

  • Availability: Gypsum slowly dissolves in soil moisture, releasing calcium ions (Ca2+) and sulfate ions (SO42-) into the soil solution over time.

  • Role of Water: Water, particularly rainfall or irrigation, accelerates the dissolution of gypsum, enhancing the release of calcium ions. However, gypsum continues to provide calcium to plants even in the absence of rainfall, albeit at a slower rate.

  •  

Lime (Calcium Carbonate or Calcium Hydroxide)


  • Overview: Lime materials, such as calcium carbonate and calcium hydroxide, are used to raise soil pH and supply calcium to plants.

  • Availability: Lime undergoes a hydrolysis reaction in the presence of water and soil acidity, releasing calcium ions into the soil solution.

  • Role of Water: Water is essential for initiating and sustaining the hydrolysis reaction of lime. Adequate soil moisture is necessary to ensure the timely availability of calcium to plants.

Calcium nitrate is often considered a preferred source of calcium for plants due to several key reasons:

  1. Immediate Availability: Calcium nitrate is highly soluble in water, which means that it readily dissolves when applied to the soil, releasing calcium ions (Ca2+) into the soil solution. This allows for rapid uptake of calcium by plant roots, providing an immediate supply of this essential nutrient to support various physiological processes in plants, such as cell wall formation, enzyme activation, and membrane stability.
  2. Nitrogen Co-Nutrient: In addition to supplying calcium, calcium nitrate also contains nitrogen in the form of nitrate ions (NO3-). Nitrogen is another crucial nutrient required for plant growth and development, particularly in the early stages of growth and during periods of active vegetative growth. The presence of nitrogen in calcium nitrate ensures that plants receive both calcium and nitrogen simultaneously, promoting balanced nutrition and healthy plant growth.
  3. Acidification Prevention: Calcium nitrate has a neutral to slightly alkaline pH, which helps to mitigate soil acidity when applied to acidic soils. By raising the soil pH, calcium nitrate can improve soil structure and enhance nutrient availability, particularly for other essential nutrients such as phosphorus and potassium. This pH-buffering effect contributes to overall soil health and fertility.
  4. Low Potential for Phytotoxicity: Compared to some other calcium sources, such as calcium chloride, calcium nitrate has a lower risk of causing phytotoxicity (damage to plant tissues) when applied at recommended rates. Its nitrate form is readily absorbed and utilized by plants without the risk of causing salt buildup or toxicity issues in the soil.

Overall, calcium nitrate is favored as a source of calcium for plants due to its immediate availability, balanced nutrient composition, soil pH benefits, compatibility, and low risk of phytotoxicity. Additionally, we have successfully developed a bio-based, biodegradable coating for this typically hard-to-coat material. Our field data demonstrates exceptional nutrient release, consistently outperforming traditional methods. These qualities make calcium nitrate an effective choice for promoting healthy plant growth and maximizing crop yields in agricultural systems.
