This study investigates the difference in the effect of magnetized water on accelerating the transport of nutrients in sandy soils and on their absorption by citrus fruits [1]. The response of the fruits to irrigation with magnetized water was estimated for three successive seasons. The results showed the effect of magnetized water on the mobility of nutrients in the root zone, which differed significantly from the element to another according to the element's ability to be magnetized . The increase in the extraction of elements from the soil as a result of magnetization was the highest possible for iron, iron extraction reached 9 times the amount of extraction in the normal case from one piece of land . Zinc increased 5 times [2], phosphorous increased 3 times and the increase in manganese was only 80%.In any case, the leaves content of manganese showed the maximum increase of this element and zinc came after it in the second place, while the content of iron in the leaves was the lowest . The leaf content of phosphorous was tripled, and for potassium the increase was significant, while for nitrogen it was not affected by magnetized water . The amount of fruits reached its maximum when the water moved to a distance of 600 meters after the magnetization device on the other hand, the magnetization device stopped causing significant changes on the water that travels for a distance of more than 700 meters [3].
