Calcium cyanamide ensures healthy growth

Calcium cyanamide promotes healthy growth in various ways:

  1. Plant growth and the resilience of the plants (firmer cell tissue) are positively affected as a result of the even, ammonium-accentuated nitrogen effect and the improved calcium supply.
  2. Calcium cyanamide increases the biological activity of the soil, encouraging the natural adversaries of harmful fungi in the soil.
  3. Calcium cyanamide inhibits the resting spores of various harmful fungi in the soil on germination, which lowers the general infection risk.

In this manner calcium cyanamide plays a role in keeping many plant diseases below the economically viable control threshold, making it an important component of "Integrated Pest Management (IPM)".
