Calcium cyanamide ensures healthy growth
Calcium cyanamide promotes healthy growth in various ways:
- 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.
- Calcium cyanamide increases the biological activity of the soil, encouraging the natural adversaries of harmful fungi in the soil.
- 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)".
