Magnesium and nitrogen are the only soil absorbed plant nutrients that are components of chlorophyll. When magnesium is in short supply plant growth will be reduced and potentially yield will be limited.
Many soils contain sufficient magnesium however high yielding horticultural crops often have additional magnesium supplied to meet plant demands.
High potassium inputs can often create a magnesium imbalance in the plant. Where high levels of potassium are being applied it is also beneficial to apply magnesium.
