Agricultural Applications

Fertilisers

Both ionic components of calcium chloride - calcium (Ca) and chloride (Cl) - are essential to plant nutrition and health and can improve yields appreciably. Calcium chloride is therefore used in fertiliser manufacture and in farms, orchards and other agricultural endeavours.

Animal feed

Magnesium supplementation to dairy cattle and sheep is very important in order to prevent grass tetany (also called grass staggers, magnesium tetany, hypomagnesia). Grass tetany is a magnesium deficiency of ruminants and is usually associated with the grazing of cool-season grasses during spring. Added magnesium can be provided through a magnesium block, tub or mineral mix.

nedMag C magnesium chloride flakes and liquid are both GMP certified.
