Magnesium Nitrate is a foliar and soil nutrient that can be applied to a wide variety of crops including flowers, vegetables, fruits, turf and ornamentals.
The nitrate in this nutrient salt facilitates the uptake of magnesium by the plant, thus improving its efficiency. It also enriches plant nutrition with readily available, easily absorbed nitrogen.
Magnesium is essential for the plant
Magnesium is a vital nutrient for healthy plant growth. It is a key component of the chlorophyll molecule, hence essential for photosynthesis and formation of carbohydrates. Magnesium is involved in enzymatic reactions and assists in generation of energy. Magnesium deficiency retards plants development, resulting in decreased yields and poor quality.
Magnesium deficiency is manifested by yellow bands between leaf veins. The symptoms show first on older leaves, and move towards young leaves as deficiency worsens. In severe cases, necrosis or death of the foliage may appear.
