NutriAg launches SiliCalMax

NutriAg, a leader in plant nutrition and agricultural crop technology, is introducing SiliCalMax, a unique silicon and calcium foliar fertilizer for both fruit and vegetable crops.


The combination of silicon and calcium in SiliCalMax is designed to provide developing tissue and fruit with valuable nutrition and prevent deficiencies and physiological disorders before they can get started.


“SiliCalMax represents an excellent opportunity for improving fruit and vegetable quality for growers in Canada,” says Dr. Sebastian Margarit, vice-president of informatics and agronomy at NutriAg.


In addition, NutriAg has demonstrated through their NutriAnalytics data platform, that silicon can be critical in improving long term crop storability. NutriAg’s scientists have paired these newly discovered relationships with the tried-and-true approach of foliar calcium applications to create SiliCalMax.


SiliCalMax fertilizer is activated by NutriAg’s PAC technology and is now available for sale throughout Canada.
