Plants use more calcium in weight and volume than any other nutrient in the soil.
Calcium is one of the key nutrients that contribute to plant health, and a higher Brix plant.
Higher brix plants are healthy plants with dark green color, Insects are not attracted to these plants because they contain to much sugar. When insects feed on these plants, the sugar will plug up there intake of oxygen. Sugar also will turn into ethylene in there stomach and kill them.

Boron also has to be present in the soil for plant to utilize calcium.
