AgroThrive LFCa is a specialty organic fertilizer that, in addition to 2.5-5-1 NPK, has 3% Calcium that comes from digested chicken bones. Calcium is known as a multi-functional nutrient that plays a role in both structural and functional processes in plant cells. It participates in cell wall structure and cell membrane permeability and is known to help mitigate plant diseases such as cracking and blossom end rot in tomatoes, tip burn in lettuce, calcium deficiency in celery, and bitter pit in apples. LFCa, like other AgroThrive products, also carries a balanced nutrient profile and stimulates soil microbial activity as well as plant root biomass and an abundance of root hairs.
