InCa is a patented calcium foliar application containing CaT™ technology that is designed to improve localised calcium movement, reducing calcium disorders and increasing marketable yield.
CaT technology stimulates selective ion transport channels in membranes, increasing the calcium concentration within cells and in doing so improves localised calcium movement.
Once delivered via the xylem, calcium typically moves in tissues via the apoplastic pathway where water (with solutes) moves between cells, or through cell walls, but does not enter the cell membrane. When movement via the apoplastic flow is limited due to low transpiration, movement via the symplastic pathway is likely to become more important.
InCa calcium is able to move directly through cells instead of around plant cells allowing calcium to move faster and more direct which increases calcium concentrations within cells.
InCa is used on fruiting crops, potatoes, Berries, grain and vegetables.
