Bullet Calcium is a super-concentrated form of calcium, unique in that the calcium is chelated with carboxylic acids, it is also balanced with boron which improves calcium uptake.
Bullet Calcium is in a form which is rapidly absorbed by the growing points of the plant. It enters actively growing cells where it is needed in large amounts to prevent damage caused by deficiencies in dry or acid soils.
Not designed to amend soil pH.
Use calcium to improve cell wall strength, growth rates, and thus improve resistance to pests and turf diseases.

Chelate – pronounced “Key-late” – is derived from the Greek word χηλή, (chēlē) meaning claw because the chelating molecule lies around the central molecule like the claws of a lobster. Practically, a chelating agent is an organic molecule which in simple terms encapsulates a plant nutrition molecule, protecting it from precipitation which would make the nutrient unavailable. Ions encapsulated within a chelating agent are far more likely to be absorbed into the plant via the roots and leaf tissue due to changes to the chelated molecules surface properties. It is this which results in greater efficiency of the applied nutrient.
