Properties: calcium nitrate tetrahydrate is a white columnar shape crystal of monoclinic system including α and β crystallographic form. The product is apt to dissolve in water, methanol, ethanol, acetone, methyl acetate and liquid ammonia. The calcium nitrate is used as an oxidizer with hygroscopic property, resulting in extreme deliquescence in air.

Used as a solid fertilizer for side dressing for high value horticultural crops such as market gardens and berry fruit crops. As this product is highly soluble, it can also be used for fertigation as a source of calcium and nitrate-nitrogen for high value horticultural crops. The nitrate-nitrogen is immediately available for plant uptake, while the calcium is provided in a readily soluble form.
Calcium Nitrate is a soluble granule ideal for use in fertigation and broadcasting.
Calcium Nitrate supplies both Nitrogen and Calcium which are both essential for quality and optimum yield of horticulture crops.
Nitrate nitrogen in Calcium Nitrate is readily available while the ammonium nitrogen is available more slowly.
High level of Calcium present in Calcium Nitrate results in non-acidifying

Storage & Handing
Keep in a tightly closed container, stored in a cool, dry, ventilated area. Protect against physical damage and moisture. Isolate from any source of heat or ignition. Avoid storage on wood floors. Separate from incompatibles, combustibles, organic or other readily oxidizable materials. Containers of this material may be hazardous when empty since they retain product residues (dust, solids); observe all warnings and precautionslisted for the product
