Calcium ammonium nitrate (CAN) is produced by mixing ammonium nitrate solution with fine limestone (dolomite) followed by granulation of the mixture. Production form – granules. Calcium ammonium nitrate regulates growth of vegetative mass, increases protein and gluten content in grain, raises crops yield, positively affects the fertility of all soil types. The soil is not acidified from regular application of this fertilizer; therefore this fertilizer may be used for all soil types and for all agricultural crops. Calcium ammonium nitrate is effectively used for acid soil especially.
