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