Role of Magnesium in Citrus Production
Magnesium and yield
Magnesium applications have been proven to increase yield, as shown in Egyptian trials with navel oranges.
Magnesium and juice content
Increases in yield are largely due to increased fruit weight. However, optimum use of magnesium also boosts juice content of the fruit.
Magnesium effects on TSS and acidity
Soil applied magnesium can increase acidity and decrease the TSS/Acid ratio.
