Function of Magnesium

Mg is a major constituent of the chlorophyll molecule and is therefore actively involved in photosynthesis. Furthermore, Magnesium is a co-factor in several enzymatic reactions that activate the phosphorylation processes (a chemical reaction resulting in the formation and creation of ATP, among others). Magnesium is required to stabilize ribosome particles (components of cells that make proteins from amino acids) and it also helps to stabilize the structure of nucleic acids (essential biological molecules). Magnesium enhances the movement of sugars within a plant.


Deficiency of Magnesium

Because Magnesium travels fast, interveinal chlorosis first appears in older leaves, with necrosis developing in the highly chlorotic tissue. In its progressed form, symptoms may superficially resemble potassium deficiency. The first symptoms are mottled chlorotic areas in the interveinal tissue. The interveinal laminae tissue expands more than the other leaf tissues. The result is a raised puckered surface, with the top of the puckers progressively going from chlorotic to necrotic tissue. In the Brassica family, tints of orange, yellow or purple can occur. Magnesium deficiency is common in acid soils and in soils receiving high amounts of Potassium fertilizer or Calcium.
