Calcium (Ca) is a secondary plant nutrient and a main ingredient in plant fertilizers. Crucial for plants, calcium prevents various types of deficiencies in plants while promoting healthy growth. It increases nutrient uptake and builds strong cell walls, which leads to sturdier crops with increased vitality. Lime, a source of calcium, has been shown to keep issues such as clubroot at bay, while other forms of calcium are considered the best way to prevent problems like blossom-end rot in tomatoes. Calcium is especially important for plants such as tomatoes, peppers, and cannabis.
“Through our colloidal technology, Clean Crop Solutions can help plants produce calcium, thus helping reduce fertilizer and nutrient usage,” says Randal Raney, Founder of Clean Crop Solution. “Clean Crop Solutions is a proven highly effective natural insect/fungi crop control and bio-stimulant able to accelerate photosynthesis. If used regularly, our solution increases internal sugar levels in the plant, providing it with natural effective pest and disease resistance.”
Clean Crop Solutions is approved and B-25 Exempt under FIFRA 25(b) Federal Regulations. "The formulation has been successfully used on Fusarium wilt, botrytis, white powdery mold, mildew, fungi, bacteria, white flies, aphids, russet mites and other insect / larvae issues, whereby after consistent regime treatment, the problem is effectively eliminated," he continues. "Clean Crop Solutions, leaves no toxic residues on crops, and is safe for mankind, pets and the environment. Pest can't become resistant to CCS."
How does it work? “Colloids, also known as micelles, are microscopic substances that possess a very profound ability to reduce or penetrate and change the surface tension,” Randal continues. “Micelles are extremely small, electrically charged particles that repel each other - just like opposing magnets - when mixed with water. This causes easy penetration of Clean Crop Solutions, within certain plant and crop membranes. The product is taken up by the leaves, roots, reinvigorating the plant and boosting its natural immune system.”
Shielding against pests
Protecting plants from potentially destructive pathogens is one of the main concerns of cannabis growers. “For nearly a century, scientists have known that, when a plant survives a disease, it often is more resistant to subsequent infections. It is as if the plant’s immune system has become stronger – and indeed it has.
Because cannabis can be very susceptible to pests and pathogens, they appear to be at the mercy of every disease or insect that comes their way. However, plants can defend themselves, through the systemic acquired resistance (SAR) mechanism for instance. Basically, when a pathogen invades the plant, a long-distance chemical signal is sent from the infection site to trigger the SAR response. "Clean Crop Solution’s crop protection works exactly in this way: by providing the plant a greater availability of critical elements, such as calcium, diseases, and pathogens are fought back by the plant itself."
"In this way, growers don’t have to rely on any chemical product, or be concerned that the pesticide they are using is not allowed for cannabis; all they need to do is to feed the plant their nutrient blend as well as Clean Crop Solution, to allow the plant to grow healthy and strong, and to ensure that it expresses its full genetic potential.”
Also, Raney just doesn't want to hang his hat on the Cannabis Industry. He's expanding his product to Horticulture, Hydroponics, Floriculture.
