If there isn't enough magnesium, the plant will not grow to its full potential, and the yield will not be as great as it could be. So to answer the question -

"Explain why the mass of magnesium available to the plants affects the yield of grain"...

The mass of the magnesium affects the yield of grain as by not having a sufficient amount means that the yield wont be as strong, healthy etc.

Hope this helps :)

Why do plants which grow in soil deficient in magnesium store much less energy than plants which grow in soil rich in magnesium?

magnesium is essential to the formation of chlorophyll in. in magnesium deficiency the plant will not form as much as chlorophyll and therefore is smaller the number able to capture the energy from the sun

What soft reactive low density metallic element important for healthy plant growth?

Magnesium is the soft reactive low density metallic element that is important for healthy plant growth. It is a crucial component of chlorophyll, which is responsible for photosynthesis in plants. Magnesium also plays a role in enzyme activation, cell membrane stability, and nutrient transportation within plants.

What is the difference between magnesium sulfate and magnesium chloride.what is the use of these salts in agriculture soil?

Well the main difference between the two is that they are totally different compounds. Magnesium sulfate has derivatives of sulfur and oxygen when magnesisum chloride is a derivitive of chlorine. Magnesium sulfate has a polyatomic ion (sulfate); magnesium chloride is made of a cation and an anion. In the magnesium sulfate, the magnesium and the sulfate ion cancel the charges so the both have a charge of 0. In magnesium chloride, the magnesium cation has a charge of 0 while the chloride anion has a charge of 2-.As for the uses of salts in agriculture, MgSO4 is often encountered as the heptahydrate epsomite (MgSO4·7H2O), commonly called Epsom salt. In agriculture and gardening, magnesium sulfate is used to correct magnesium deficiency in soil, since magnesium is an essential element in the chorophyll molecule. It is most commonly applied to potted plants, or to magnesium-hungry crops, such as potatoes, roses, tomatoes, peppers and cannabis. The advantage of magnesium sulfate over other magnesium soil amendments (such as dolomitic lime) is its high solubility.As for the magnesium chloride, its uses include using for dust and erosion control and for experimenting anti lipid effects in animals.

The growth of plants in cracks between patio bricks can be prevented by applying salt explain?

The salt takes away all of the water from the plants. This makes it difficult for them to thrive in that area.
