All crops should be supplemented with magnesium regardless of the soil levels.

Magnesium is a central component of chlorophyll and as such it is required at luxury levels for all crops. In most leaf tests we analyse, magnesium is required and it should be an integral part of all crop programs.


  • Magnesium is the core component of the chlorophyll molecule and is necessary for the synthesis of amino acids, vitamins, oils and sugars.
  • Magnesium regulates the uptake of many elements and is vital for seed germination.
  • Small molecular size increases chelation speed.
  • Also serves as a carbohydrate-based microbial promotant.
  • Contains “background nutrients” to avoid the problems that can occur when the correction of one shortage triggers another shortage due to the antagonistic effect of certain elements.
