It is presented the results of a long-term and intensive experiment, which models the processes of primary soil formation under controlled agro-ecosystems. The influence of mineral substrate transformation is analyzed on the content of chemical elements in plants tomato, and wheat. For the first time have been established dynamic synergistic and antagonistic interrelations between the chemical elements in a various bodies of the plant (roots, reproductive bodies, stems, and leaves). Using methods of the theory of information was revealed dynamics of collective state of chemical elements in the plants. It is shown that the collective states of the chemical elements which defined by the information function is strictly differentiated for different plant bodies, and have hierarchic order. We analyzed the following chemical elements Si, Al, Fe, Mg, Ca, K, P, S, Cl, Na, Mn, Zn.
