One of the most common questions coming up in June and July growing seasons is “How do I cure blossom end rot?” and the answer is very simple; Kelzyme.
Why does Kelzyme cure blossom end rot? To dive deeper into understanding the cure we need to better understand the cause.
Blossom end rot is caused by a lack of calcium movement within your plant. Your soil may be rich in calcium, but if your plant is unable to absorb that calcium, it will not be able to absorb the water or other nutrients you are feeding it. Since tomatoes and peppers are some of the hungriest plants, if they are not able to properly uptake nutrients and water, they will develop blossom end rot easily. Ensuring your tomatoes and peppers, and all plants, have the ability to feed well, you must offer them the appropriate amount of calcium in the right form.
We have all heard the phrase “Milk builds strong bones” and why? Milk builds strong bones because of the calcium content. Which, in a way, is the same way calcium builds strong bones within your plant, which ultimately is the cure for blossom end rot.
Calcium is one of the most important nutrients for any plant is because of its’ ability to ensure your plant is absorbing the nutrients and water it needs to be healthy. Calcium assists in the opening of your plant on a cellular level to keep nutrients and water flowing properly throughout the plant, creating more fruit, building the immune system of the plant, and ultimately ensuring it thrives. It’s building your plant up on a cellular level, from the inside out, just like it does for humans.
One of the best things about Kelzyme is that it feeds the soil through its bioavailability, which is important. The form in which you offer nutrients matters, and to ensure your plant is nourished with what it needs, without any opportunity for lockout or burn, the calcium in Kelzyme is offered at the pace of the plant. The Calcium and trace minerals within the product help to balance your soil effectively, nourishing your plant from the roots and building the bridges between water, nutrients, and cell walls. It is the best cure for blossom end rot because it ensures your plant has the ability to uptake the nutrients easily by offering 37% calcium, alongside a multitude of macro and micro nutrients, without the potential to cause any harm.
So how do you apply Kelzyme to cure blossom end rot? The answer is extremely simple; whichever way is easiest for you.
Kelzyme comes in tow forms, granular and micronized, and both can be beneficial for your plants at all stages. The micronized version is excellent for hydroponics, foliar sprays, and can be added into your top soil. The granular version is prime when you are first planting, transplanting, or can also be added into your top soil. Whichever way is most convenient for you, Kelzyme will dive into your soil and provide nourishment, healing your plant from the roots up. You literally can’t do it wrong.
To better understand why Kelzyme is one of the best soil amendments around, we have to better understand what exactly Kelzyme is. So let’s dive deeper…
…Into the ocean that is. The uniqueness of 100% Natural Kelzyme™ traces back millions of years over which time nutrient-rich sea kelp and various forms of marine life thrived and subsequently fossilized. This ancient marine life was rich in life-supporting minerals, plant growth stimulants and cytokinins. 100% Natural Kelzyme™ is sourced from a designated single area in northern Nevada. The site of this ancient sea kelp bed containing those nutrient-rich, fossilized remains. 100% Natural Kelzyme™ is an OMRI-listed and CDFA Organic Input Material (OIM)-registered calcium-rich mineral composite, making it one of the best soil amendments on the planet.
At Kelzyme® Research & Development, we believe in the stewardship of Mother Nature. As such, we take pride in providing natural, sustainable products to our customers, enabling nature to give back to nature. It’s a huge reason why Kelzyme is one of the best soil amendments you can possibly use for plants and soils of all types.
100% Natural Kelzyme™ is a unique product of nature, and one of its most significant nutrient components is calcium. 100% Natural Kelzyme™ contains a guaranteed minimum of 35% calcium, which is vital for the growth and development of plants. Plants require a panel of essential elements in the root zone. One of the most critical to plant development and also one required in the largest quantity is calcium. A calcium deficiency may often result in poor root and shoot growth. It can also cause necrosis on leaves and abnormal development of growing points or terminal buds. Conversely, calcium enhances plant, root and shoot growth.
Calcium is an integral part of plant cell wall structure and builds strong stems and leaves.
When calcium is taken up by the plant, it forms pectin, a structural heteropolysaccharide contained in the primary cell walls of plants. In essence, calcium is the structure that binds cell walls together. This creates a strong and healthy plant, which is why Kelzyme is one of the best soil amendments on the market. As calcium is not easily redeployed from one area of the plant to another, a steady supply of calcium is necessary throughout the life of the plant to strengthen its vascular system. It also helps produce thicker and stronger stems and promote new growth at the growing tips. If the plant has a healthy vascular system, it is able to more efficiently take up water and other essential minerals. The results? A stronger, more disease-resistant, stress-resistant plant. This provides a more bountiful and healthy crop.
In fruiting crops specifically, a bump in the supply of calcium (and nitrogen & magnesium) early in the plant’s life is often suggested to promote and establish good plant structure and vegetative growth. [Note: often and especially in the later transition between vegetative growth and flowering and fruit set, a bump in the rate of potassium is often suggested]. Calcium in the plant is also an activator for a number of plant growth-regulating enzyme systems, helps convert nitrate-nitrogen into forms needed for protein formation and also serves as an intracellular messenger.
Included in the unique profile of Kelzyme is a variety of other nutrients including iron with a guaranteed minimum of 0.15%. Iron is vitally important in the manufacturing process of chlorophyll and is also required for certain enzyme functions. Other benefits include natural plant growth substances with cytokinin-like properties which have been correlated to increased chlorophyll concentrations in plant tissue – particularly the cotyledons. Additionally, cytokinins promote cell division or cytokinesis in plant roots and shoots and also support bud growth. Furthermore, cytokinins have been demonstrated to play a positive role in increased plant immunity. 100% Natural Kelzyme™ also contains a spectrum of other beneficial and necessary minerals in trace quantities. Some of which include boron, copper, chloride, cobalt, magnesium, manganese, molybdenum, nickel, nitrogen, potassium, silicon, sulfur and zinc.
A healthy soil profile is critical for a healthy plant, which is why having the best soil amendments is important. 100% Natural Kelzyme™, in addition to feeding the plant, also supports and feeds the soil which in turn helps nourish the plant. 100% Natural Kelzyme™ flocculates clay and organic matter particles, leading to proper soil porosity, soil aeration and soil drainage. Each of which support the beneficial biology of the soil complex, aerobic by nature. Additionally, the beneficial soil biology is further nourished by feeding heavily upon the calcium supplied by 100% Natural Kelzyme™. And lastly, 100% Natural Kelzyme™ neutralizes acid soils which otherwise can be injurious to optimal plant and soil health. The net result is a product of nature, that gives back to nature by promoting healthy soil, healthy plants and healthy crops.
100% Natural Kelzyme™ fosters vigorous and beautiful plants, robust fruits and vegetables and lush turf. It is ideally suited for vegetables, fruits, citrus, flowers, buds, shrubs, trees, orchards, vineyards, turf, nut, row and field crops.
100% Natural Kelzyme™ is available in two forms: Micronized and Granular.
Both the Micronized and Granular forms can be utilized in traditional soil media. The Micronized form will work quicker while the Granular form offers slower, more residual activity spanning many months. The Granular version can even span into later growing season(s) depending upon the rate used. Either form –the Micronized and the Granular—can be applied both indoors and outdoors any time of the year before or after planting and throughout the growing season.
So no matter what you’re growing, do yourself a favor and grab some Kelzyme because it truly is one of the best soil amendments on the planet.
