|TETRA's Hi-Cal™ liquid calcium is the most readily available nutrient for peanuts. It is a clear liquid derived from calcium chloride, containing 12% soluble calcium, and can|
be used to replace water as a carrier for pre-emerge herbicides in peanuts or to be injected into irrigation water 0 to 30 days after planting, eliminating the need for extra trips across the field.
It has been established that the larger the size of the peanut, the higher the calcium requirement. Growers in the Southeast are moving away from growing small seeded runner variety peanuts, such as Georgia Green, to large seeded runner variety, such as Georgia 06G, Florida 07, and Tifguard. For these large seeded varieties, a timely and adequate amount of calcium has become critical for both yield and grade.
