Magnesium Sulphate Heptahydrate is an inorganic compound made of magnesium, sulphur and oxygen. Also known as Epsom salt, this powdered substance is widely used in Agriculture and Horticulture fields to improve the soil fertility levels.
It is also used to make pain relieving lotions, creams and oils. Magnesium and sulfur, two naturally occurring minerals that are major components of Epsom salt, may help plants grow greener with higher yields and more blooms. Magnesium creates an environment conducive to growth by helping seeds to germinate, increasing chlorophyll production and improving phosphorus and nitrogen uptake. Sulfur is also a key element in plant growth, helping produce vitamins.
