YaraLiva Calcinit Greenhouse Grade calcium nitrate fertilizer, 15.5-0-0 with 18% calcium
"Liva" is the Old Norse word for "life."
YaraLiva® fertilizers are a comprehensive range of calcium nitrates that help ensure high-value, highly marketable produce. Quite simply, they are a range of high-quality fertilizers that optimize cash-crop performance and produce food that satisfies even the most demanding growers and consumers. They provide fast-acting nitrate-N, alongside strength-building calcium and boron. In combination, these nutrients fuel prolonged growth. At the same time, plants and trees treated with YaraLiva®-branded fertilizers are naturally healthier and less sensitive to stress during growth. Then, critically, in the build-up to harvest, YaraLiva® fertilizers improve the size, strength and appearance of the fruit, tuber, leaf or lettuce. The end result is blemish-free produce that will store longer and which is less susceptible to damage, disease or rotting and visibly more desirable, colorful, fresher and highly nutritious.YaraLiva Calcinit is a fully water soluble nitrogen and calcium fertilizer. It is a free flowing, fine granular or prilled material which dissolves quickly in water without any residues.
YaraLiva Calcinit is suited to application through all fertigation systems - hydroponics, drip systems, low volume sprinklers, center pivots and spray units. YaraLiva Calcinit is free of chlorine and sodium.

Directly available for plant uptake, resulting in fast and predictable growth responses. Non-volatile nor adsorbed to soil particles, leaving it readily available to plants. The preferred nitrogen source for most horticultural and high value agricultural crops. Improves plant uptake of the cations potassium, calcium and magnesium.
Cell wall strength, leading to better quality, shelf life and increases marketable crop yields. Cell wall strength, helping plants tolerate disease. Helps to maintain an optimum root environment for high yielding crops. Tolerance to heat stress.
YaraLiva™ Calcinit™, derived from Ammonium Calcium Nitrate Double Salt, can be mixed with all water soluble fertilizers, except stock solutions containing either phosphate or sulphate.
Blossom end rot in tomatoes, tip burn in lettuce, internal rust spot in potatoes are some of the most commonly seen symptoms of calcium deficiency. Calcium uptake takes place passively through the transpiration stream, and it is essential that a fully water soluble supply of calcium is available in the rootzone when plants need it most.
One gram dissolved in one gallon of water yeilds 41 ppm nitrate nitrogen and 50 ppm calcium.
