Calcium typically has low mobility in the soybean plant.
The distribution of calcium is particularly poor in flowers and pods furthest from the main stem.
Poor mobility and distribution of calcium leads to flower and pod abortion, which reduces productivity.
Fortalis® is an advanced crop enhancement foliar spray that works by mobilizing calcium already existing within plant tissues, resulting in higher pod retention. When applied as a tank mix, Fortalis® with a fungicide or insecticide contributes to better plant health and higher yield potential. Fortalis® is not a calcium supplement or plant hormone.
The CaT™ technology in Fortalis® contains a special combination of thoroughly researched, tested and regulated chemicals. These chemicals improve localized calcium movement via the symplastic pathway (through the cytoplasm, rather than only between the cell walls) for better fixation of flowers and pods, resulting in increased yields.
