Too early to apply?

WOW, what a treat! Most of America is enjoying a very warm, early spring! I know everyone is itching to get outdoors and kick off the season. While it is still too early in most parts north of the Mason-Dixon line to begin your early spring fertilizations, it is never too early to begin spreading SuperCal SO4. One of the great characteristics of organic, all-natural products is not having to depend on mother nature for an application schedule. Take our SuperCal SO4, for example. It is a naturally mined, organic material that works beautifully with any fertility program. You can apply it any time throughout the year. You don’t have to wait for the frost to be out of the ground, you don’t have to wait for the ground temperature to hit a magical degree in order for the product to work. Our SuperCal SO4 can be applied, left alone…

Not just a Calcium Products company…

With my job and I am very fortunate to travel all across this great country of ours. I have an opportunity to meet people from all walks of life and introduce them to Calcium Products, Inc. Typically, I give them my 30 second elevator speech about who Calcium Products are and then depending on who I am talking with I will expand into a more detailed account of our company. Most people can figure out what we do simply by looking at our company name, but we are so much more than that. While calcium certainly plays a huge role in our base ingredients for manufacturing we actually blend 9 of the 16 essential  plant nutrients in our base calcium products. You could make a very strong case however we blend  12 out of 16 if you include Carbon, Hydrogen and Oxygen. If you are going to be growing anything,…

On the Tee Segment

So what do Spring Valley Golf Course in Livermore, IA and Torrey Pines Golf Course in San Diego, CA have in common? Recently, I had an opportunity to spend some time with our good friends at the Iowa Sports Connection and talk golf. If you follow the PGA Tour, you know that last week Torrey Pines hosted the Farmer’s Insurance Open. What was more amazing than Kyle Stanley’s epic collapse on the 18th fairway was the conditioning of the golf course. Thanks to SuperCal SO4, the players were treated to the best conditions in the history of the tournament. Listen to my segment from “On the Tee” radio show below: “On the Tee” Interview

A Guide to 16 Essential Plant Nutrients

There are 16 nutrients required to grow plants. Knowing these nutrients required to grow plants is only one aspect of successful plant development. Optimum production also requires knowing the rates of application, method and time of applications and the source of nutrients to use. Each of these nutrients is equally important to the plant, yet each is required in vastly different amounts. These differences have led to the grouping of these essential elements into 3 categories: primary (macro) nutrients, secondary nutrients and micronutrients. 3 of the Nutrients are taken up from either Air or Water; those are carbon (C), hydrogen (H) and oxygen (O). The remaining 13 nutrients are taken up from the soil. PRIMARY NUTRIENTS NITROGEN Necessary for formation of amino acids, the building blocks of protein Essential for plant cell division, vital for plant growth Directly involved in photosynthesis Aids in production and use of carbohydrates Affects energy reactions in the plant PHOSPHOROUS Involved in…
