It is found in soil. Magnesium absorption by plants is conditioned by three main factors: the amount of land accessible, magnesium interactions with other elements and requirements of the plant. Insufficient magnesium produces necrosis of leaves. Magnesium accumulate in seeds, formed with phosphoric acid, fitina.

 
Sulfur

Sulfur is present in the soil as organic and mineral.

Organic sulfur is the most important reserves of ground mineralization and progress to a more or less quickly depending on the activity of microorganisms.

 
Calcium

Calcium is taken from the environment. In plant cells and tissues to be present in ionic form and the form of inorganic and organic combinations.

 
Phosphorus

Phosphorus is found in soil as organic and inorganic compounds. Soil organic phosphorus comes from the decomposition of organic residues from crop residues or organic fertilizers.
