Agromax CA (Removes unwanted salts from soil)

Product Name :- Agromax CA (Removes unwanted salts from soil)

Agromax CA is a high quality corrector of soil salinity, both in sodic (high sodium) & saline (high soluble salt) soils; it is based on Calcium and Polymaleic Acid.

How it works?

Soluble calcium from calcium nitrate or calcium thiosulphate combine quickly with carbonates in the soil, reducing their effectiveness as a salinity tool. The calcium in Moversalt is protected by the polymaleic acid, enhancing the salt displacement effect in soils with a high saturation in sodium.

After it has released the calcium to the soil, the polymaleic acid acts as a complexing agent, binding to the sodium salts and washing through the root zone with subsequent irrigations.

This can be particularly important in times of drought and low rainfall when the accumulation of salts is higher.

What is Agromax CA?

Agromax CA is a highly stable organic acid. In Moversalt it is complexed with calcium and has two main functions:

  1. In the soil, the polymaleic acid-calcium complex transfers the calcium to the exchange complex, releasing two sodium ions. These sodium ions can then be washed from the root zone.
  2. Polymaleic acid also solubilises insoluble (carbonate) plant nutrients in the soil, releasing minerals such as Ca, Mg and trace elements to the soil solution. This improves their immediate availability for plant growth and allows their adsorption to the humus-clay complex (for medium term availability).

Composition % w/v

Calcium 10.58%

Nitrogen 8.5%

Polymaleic Acid 10-24%

Contains: Calcium + Polymaleic Acid.

More effective:  Polymaleic Acid protects Ca so it can  replace Na more effectively = lower application rates.
