2013).The increase in pod and grain yield by application of1% CaCl2 might be due to availability of Ca+2 to plants which plays an important role in many biochemicalprocesses delaying senescence regulation of plant activities especially through protein phosphorylation and controlling physiological disorders in fruits and vegetables (Wahid et al.
chauvoei with equal volume of Cacl2 was injected into healthy guinea pigs each weighing 400-450 grams and waited for 24-48 hours for pathogenicity testing.
The precipitates of the complexes were filtered off, washed with cold methanol but the Ni complex was washed with ether and all complexes dried over anhydrous CaCl2 under vacuum.
09-CBZ5: (CaCl2, 0.6 g/l; MgSO4, 0.4 g/l; Maltose, 0.5 g/l; Peptone,0.6 g/l; (NH4)2SO4, 2.0 g/l; KH2PO4, 2.1 g/l)
Soil sample was shaken with KH2PO4 solution, filtered and S was determined turbidimetrically as described in previous section for CaCl2 extractable soil sulfur [40].
The application of CaCl2 significantly decreased percent weight loss (1.16 %) and soft rot (1.41 %), while juice content (57.58 %), firmness (5.62 kg/cm2) and density of fruit (0.78 g/cm3) increased with CaCl2 solution.
Absorbency of the kC-g-poly(AA-co- NIPAM) hydrogel sample was evaluated in 0.15 M solutions of NaCl and CaCl2 according to the above method described for swelling measurement in distilled water.

CaCl2 favours chitinase activity, the addition of 1% and 3% into the culture media recorded a reading of 1.26 U/mL compared to the control 0.97 U/mL but protease activity was recorded as 139.69 U/mL compared to control 122.71U/mL.
Foliar application of calcium chloride (CaCl2) alone had no significant effect on most of the quality variables, however, CaCl2 + Borax (Na2B4O7* 10H2O) application increased the fruit weight (19.87 g), pulp weight (14.88 g) and pulp dry weight (13.76%) in control fruits to the maximum of 20.79, 15.69 g and 15.40% respectively with CaCl2 (3%) + Borax (1.5%).
The columns (duplicate) were irrigated with artificial rain (0.01 M CaCl2 solution in deionised water (OECD, 1993)) each week for four weeks.
