Magnesium is an important nutrient and plays a significant role formation and development of sink organs such as seeds and roots. Moreover, its fertilization significantly affects crop yield and many physiological processes in various crop species. Furthermore, its deficiency caused reduction in germination and crop stand. However, its adequate amount through foliar application plays a significant role in physiological and biochemical process of plants such as enzymes activation, proteins synthesis, metabolism of carbohydrates and transferring of energy. Globally, many of our agronomic crops are facing problem of low yield due to inadequate amount of fertilizer application. The present review focuses on impact of foliar application of magnesium on some agronomic crops (wheat, sunflower, maize, soybean, beans, cotton and brassica).

Keywords: Magnesium; Crop Yield; Physiological Processes; Deficiency; Foliar application; Agronomic Crops.
