Improve Your Plant’s Environment
Growers frequently encounter two types of soil construction problems: soils that are “dispersed,” that is, allow too much water, essentially drowning the roots — or soils that are “compacted,” keeping water out of the micropores where nutrients are taken up.
Calcium has been proven to be an essential ingredient to building “flocculated” — or properly structured soil — for maintaining critical micropore spaces for root development and nutrient uptake.
IQ Drive Ca adds an important surfactant to carry the Calcium where it is most needed, while also lowering surface tension for better water movement.
IQ Drive Ca — Create A More Efficient Root Zone
Enhanced Plant Growth
The powerful combination of ionic Calcium with a surfactant to enhance water movement creates a growing environment in which plants can more efficiently absorb and metabolize nutrients. This is one of the most essential aspects of productive and strong plant growth.
Enhanced Water/Air Ratios In The Soil
Too little water, or too much water, in the root zone can restrict plant growth. The importance of the surfactant in IQ Drive Ca is that it will enhance the “Volumetric Water Content,” allowing for the proper air water ratios in soil for optimum plant growth.
Enhanced Root Growth
Calcium is the material of root growth, and IQ Drive Ca provides a cost-effective source of highly soluble Calcium for nutrient uptake in the root zone.
Simply Intelligent Growth
Within the rhizoplane — that area in the soil that extends beyond the immediate roots — the ratio of air and water through the macropores and micropores is one of the most critical aspects of plant nutrient uptake. The surfactant within IQ Drive Ca creates improved water penetration into and through the micropore areas, where root hairs interact with the nutrients in the soil.
As the surface tension is reduced, the Calcium in IQ Drive Ca is driven into the root zone, helping build flocculated soil, increasing drainage and improving a positive growing environment for greater root growth.
