Advanced Calcium Nutrition


What is It?

  • P3 is a low salt index calcium-based liquid fertilizer.
  • P3 is a foliar for in-crop spray.
  • It’s formulated with the Stress Reliever Technology™ (offsets the energy re-allocation during stress periods).
  • The product is available in 10L jugs, 450L & 1000L IBC’s.

When & Why Use It?

  • Use at herbicide timing on all pulse crops (peas, chickpeas, lentils, faba beans, …).
  • P3 helps boost the metabolism and relieves the crop from early-season stress (cold, wet, physical or chemical injury, …).
  • Use after hail storm with Super B (10% Boron) to mitigate tissue damage and re-stimulate growth and branching.
  • Use to advance crop maturity.
  • P3 contains Calcium, which is important for cell division and elongation as well as cell wall development.
  • Calcium is important for nitrate uptake and metabolism and phosphorus uptake.
  • Involved in the control of enzyme activity and starch metabolism.
  • Vital during the nodulation process in legumes.
  • Calcium is not very mobile in the soil or in plant tissue, therefore a continuous supply is essential.

What to Expect?

  • P3 improves root growth, nodule development and above ground vegetative growth.
  • P3 aids in the reduction of stress from environmental stresses, such as extreme cold, excessive moisture, high temperatures, herbicide and hail damage.

Size Options



Application Guidelines

  • 0.25 L/ac with a minimum of 5-10 US gal/ac of water
  • Can be combined with pesticide application (see compatibility charts).
  • Recommended on all pulses at herbicide timing.
  • Ideal timing is 1-6 node stage for peas and 1-9 node stage for lentils and chickpeas.
