Magnesium (Mg) has diverse physiological functions in biological systems. Among the essential mineral nutrients required by plants, Mg has important roles in phloem loading and transport of photoassimilates into sink organs such as roots, shoot tips and seeds (Cakmak et al. 1994a; Hermans et al. 2005). Magnesium is also a mineral nutrient with highly positive impacts on photosynthesis, enzyme activation, and formation and utilization of ATP. It is therefore not surprising that the growth of… CONTINUE READING
