The legal requirements for agriculture are constantly increasing. Sustainability and resource-saving treatment of nature are most important. At the same time, is the important role of agriculture, to receive good yields or even to increase them in order to guarantee a sufficient supply of food.

Only healthy, nutrient-rich soil can ensure good harvest yields. But during harvest, the nutrients that the plants have absorbed from the soil through their roots are withdrawn together with the plants from the soil. In order to maintain the soil quality, fertilization is indispensable.

As a basic requirement, plants need water. For healthy plant growth, however, they need additional nutrients and trace elements such as nitrogen, phosphate, potassium and copper, zinc and magnesium. Plants can only achieve high yields when being supplied with the right nutrients through a needs-based supply of mineral fertilizers.

Magnesium is essential for all plants. Photosynthesis cannot take place without magnesium. Magnesium is also involved in the control of many enzymes and cell respiration. If the plant lacks magnesium, this quickly leads to deficiency symptoms. The roots are poorly supplied and, as a result, other nutrients can only be absorbed to a limited extent. A source of magnesium that is readily available to the plant must be included in the fertilizer formulations.

The typical mineral fertilization has been soil fertilization, in which the nutrients are brought into the soil and taken up by the plants through the roots. In recent years, however, foliar feed has also become more and more popular, as it can be optimally adapted to the prevailing environmental conditions. Here the plant absorbs the mineral fertilizer directly through the leaf and a deficiency can be remedied more quickly.

MAGNESIA offers various raw materials for use in single or multiple nutrient fertilizers. Depending on the recipe, these are suitable for use as granules In soil fertilization or in liquid form for foliar feed.


  • Magnesium chloride
  • Magnesium nitrate, 6-hydrate
  • Magnesium oxide
  • Magnesium sulphate, 7-hydrate
  • Magnesium hydroxide
  • Magnesium sulphate, anhydrous
  • Calcium carbonate
