Calcium (Ca) is responsible for the production of healthy cell walls and is very important in the growth of strong roots and shoots.  Calcium regulates nutrient uptake and stimulates leaf and fruit formation. It is also thought to counteract the effect of alkali salts within the plant.Supplying calcium to your vegetables will help prevent Blossom End Rot (BER). 

Magnesium (Mg) is a very important part of chlorophyll production, which is responsible for the plant's green color, and is also necessary to produce carbohydrates through photosynthesis.  Magnesium will increase iron and phosphorus utilization.  When the plant becomes deficient in Magnesium, foliar chlorosis will occur resulting in yellowing of the plant and poor photosynthesis. 
Sulfur (S) is an essential plant food in the production of protein and the development of enzymes and vitamins. Sulfur assists in chlorophyll formation and vigorous plant growth.  When sulfur is lacking the plant exhibits intense chlorosis (yellowing).
