China's Magnesium Fertilizer Research Wants to Occupy Global Initiative

China's Magnesium Fertilizer Research Wants to Occupy Global Initiative
Issue Time:2018-05-22
Magnesium will become the fourth largest nutrient after nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium. Demand for magnesium fertilizer in China's agriculture will grow rapidly to catch up with Europe. Based on the current soil conditions, the annual requirement will also be estimated at 4 million tons (in terms of magnesium sulfate). Established a year ago, the Institute for Magnesia Institute (IMI) focused on the interactions between micronutrients such as magnesium in plants and magnesium and other nutrients, and proposed the positioning of the three combinations. The combination of workers and peasants in business and farming, and the basis of plant nutrition Combination of applied research, theory and practice.

This year, the fertilizer industry's attention to magnesium fertilizer has risen sharply. The value of magnesium fertilizer for global agriculture is constantly being recognized by the industry, but the interaction between magnesium and other elements is relatively backward, and the standard for the application of magnesium is also blank. The experts put forward: The rational application of magnesium fertilizer in crops and the healthy development of magnesium fertilizer industry are of great significance. What is more concerned about the industry is that the national standard for "boron and magnesium fertilizers" will be formally implemented on April 1 next year.

Magnesium is a forgotten nutrient in China and many other countries. Magnesium has been used in Europe for more than 80 years. Magnesium has been used in Europe in the amount of 1 million tons (as magnesium sulfate) and is the highest in the world. The situation of magnesium deficiency in China's soil is also very serious. According to statistics from the agricultural sector, there are 210 million mu of soil in the country with moderate magnesium deficiency and 140 million mu of land with severe magnesium deficiency. The positioning of Magnesium Research Institute based on China's global radiation also caters to this market demand.
