CAN contains nitrogen in ammonium and nitric forms. Ammonium nitrogen can be up taken directly by plants but more often is bound to clay particles in the soil where it will over time be transformed to nitric nitrogen. Nitric nitrogen moves through soil rapidly and is quickly up taken by plants.

Why Use Magnesite:

CAN has a near neutral effect on PH so is suitable for application when the price of lime application is high.

  • Nitrogen losses through ammonium volatilisation are minimal when CAN is applied meaning CAN can be applied in any weather conditions.
  • CAN contains equal amounts of nitric and ammonium nitrogen offering plants a consistent supply of fast release and slow release nitrogen.
  • Ammonium and Nitric Nitrogen require less soil activity to be uptaken by plants when compared to urea nitrogen. This means CAN has improved responses when compared to Urea in cooler temperatures when soils are in a more dormant state.

Precautions when applying Magnesite:

  • Avoid application before large amounts of rainfall (40ml plus within 10 hours) to reduce any leaching.

 

Magnesiums role in crops and pastures:

  • Crops and pastures require Magnesium to capture the sun’s energy for growth and production through photosynthesis.
  • Magnesium acts as a phosphorus carrier in plants, and is required for better root formation and thus for better nutrient and water efficiency in plants.
  • Magnesium aids in plant respiration and the activation of many enzyme systems.
