Chlorophyll is a N and Mg rich protein that gives the plant its green color and is key to efficient photosynthesis. The relationship between magnesium content and nitrogen has been difficult to manage at times. As leaf N% increases so does the need for Mg. We are often deficient in Mg, the results being under utilization of N inputs. Keep that in mind as you manage your crop canopy duration. Healthy canopy = longer grain fill period = big big yield.
