Yara's comprehensive range of calcium nitrate fertilizers that help ensure high-value, highly marketable produce, are called YaraLiva.
YaraLiva calcium nitrates provide fast-acting nitrate-N, alongside strength-building calcium. In combination, these nutrients fuel prolonged growth. Plants and trees treated with YaraLiva-branded fertilizers are naturally healthier and less sensitive to stress during growth. Then, critically, in the build-up to harvest, YaraLiva calcium nitrate fertilizers improve the size, strength and appearance of the fruit, tuber, leaf or lettuce.
The YaraLiva formulation includes nitrates, the preferred N form. Crops respond more quickly to nitrate. It is also more mobile in the soil and immediately available to the crop.
By using YaraLiva fertilizers you will get a longer lasting fruit and vegetable with improved inner health and outer beauty.
Calcium is key throughout the life of the plant. Roots need calcium for growth and a consistent supply is directly related to early fruit growth, healthy cell division, and the overall strength and health of fruits, vegetables and nut crops.
Nitrogen is the plant nutrient required in the greatest quantities. It is key for chlorophyll production and plays a major role in cell division, growth of new tissues and root system development. The preferred form of N for plant uptake is nitrate. With fully soluble calcium and nitrate-nitrogen, YaraLiva products guarantee these critical nutrients are quickly and efficiently available to crops.
With the strengthening of cell structure and protection against stresses, fruits and vegetables with a healthy supply of calcium nitrate are visibly healthier, more vibrant in color and are blemish-free inside and out. When YaraLiva is included in a fertilizer program, fruit and vegetables also keep their weight and quality for a longer time period; keeping them fresh until enjoyed by consumers.
Season after season, growers are faced with a variety of environmental stresses that are simply out of the industries' control. While nature and weather will take its course, with YaraLiva Calcium Nitrate growers can give their plants and trees the strength needed to protect against diseases and environmental stresses such as heat, drought, salinity and excessive sodium.
