Magnesium plays an important role in many metabolic processes such as photosynthesis for formation,
transport and storage of carbohydrates, proteins & lipids.
Supplying soils with magnesium gives us:
} Increased & amp; fixed returns.
} The development of the root system (cereals), according to several experimental data.
} Increases the resistance of plants to high temperatures & in sunlight, significantly reducing plant stress.
} Reduces the effect of toxic elements.
There are available experiments adapted to the Greek soil-climatic conditions which demonstrate the necessity of magnesium in the strengthening of crops, noting the results of its effect on crops such as:
} Corn – increase yield.
} Cereals – Increase yield but & of the quality of
} Corn – reduction of plant stress from high
temperatures & solar radiation.
At low pH, Al (Clay) ions increase & the growth of the root system is hindered. Magnesium exceeds these ions & amp; the root system can grow & to absorb nutrients.
The supply of soils with sulfur (S) which is a very important nutrient for the formation of proteins & increase
oil, offers us:
} High & fixed returns.
} Increases the effectiveness of Nitrogen.
} Reduces nutritional deficiencies, zinc (Zn) & iron
(Fe) in calcareous soils.
} Increases the resistance of plants to fungal diseases.
Results from the effect of sulfur in experimental crops such as:
} Cotton – increase in dry weight.
Competition between Kali, Magnesium
Potassium is absorbed by diffusion while
magnesium with natural flow (mass flow). They need significant amounts of available magnesium in the soil to
absorbed by plants. High concentration of potassium
in the soil reduces the absorption of magnesium but
the opposite does not happen.
The high solubility of ESTA KIESERIT in soil
can not be compared with other forms of magnesium
(magnesium carbonate, dolomite) which are much more insoluble forms.
Better absorption of N & amp; P from maize plants after formation of “Struvit” = reaction of DAP with
the ESTA Kieserit.
