Base Magnesium

Foliar-Pak® Base Magnesium is a highly concentrated magnesium based on a proprietary dispersion and suspension process that includes polymers and sugars.

Foliar-Pak Base Magnesium is a soil-applied product designed to fill the void between foliar magnesium applications, and soil-applied granular applications. Providing more magnesium than a foliar application, while being much smaller in particle size compared to a granular application, allows Foliar-Pak Base Magnesium to begin working in the soil during in-season applications. With its small particle size, Foliar-Pak Base Magnesium is easily solubilized and adsorbed to soil cation exchange sites.


In The Soil:

  • Magnesium has the ability to displace sodium ions on the soil colloid, and also buffer salts that may be present in the root rhizosphere.
  • Magnesium is important in maintaining proper base saturation levels.
  • Magnesium often becomes deficient in sandy soils.

In The Plant:

  • Magnesium is a constituent of chlorophyll, and therefore has a profound effect on photosynthesis and plant color.
  • Magnesium is a component of the middle lamella—the layer that cements cell walls of two adjoining plant cells together.
  • Magnesium is required for the preservation of ribosome structure and integrity, making magnesium important in the protein-building process.
