Calcium is an abundant mineral that is unlikely to be missing in soils of semi-arid farmland. Yet plants and people are often calcium deficient. Host Mary Lucero discusses symptoms of calcium deficiencies and reasons why crops and soils may require added calcium. She then shows us why even when crops and soils have sufficient calcium, diets may still need supplementation.
