Calcium Conference Online: Calcium for Soil and Plant Health | LKAB Minerals

The Calcium Conference is back for 2020, this year through a series of webinars during September and October.

Calcium plays an integral role in soil and plant health. The mineral is used to strengthen a plant’s cell wall structure and help protect against diseases, in addition to being critical for soil structure. Yet despite these benefits, it’s often forgotten by farmers and agronomists alike.
