Tabulated Data of Concentrations by Crops
In most commercially grown crops, magnesium concentrations average between 0.1 and 0.5% on a dry weight basis (29). However, total magnesium concentration may vary considerably between different plant families. The legumes (Leguminosae or Fabaceae) can have nearly double the magnesium concentration as most cereal crops (201). Likewise, oil seed crops and root crops can also contain high concentrations of magnesium (201). A tabulated description of magnesium concentrations for different crops is presented in Table 6.1.
