Navigating the world of boron fertilizers: Why Solubor is a game-changer

:: Wednesday, October 25, 2023 :: Posted By Fabiano Silvestrin

Fertilizing is an art form for anyone deeply involved in agriculture. The balance of nutrients, the type of fertilizers, and their application methods can make or break your yield. With various products in the market, planning a fertilizer program can get complicated. If you're specifically looking for a boron fertilizer for foliar application, U.S. Borax is here to help you understand why Solubor® might be an excellent fit for your needs.

Tailored to your field’s specifications

Different fields have different nutrient requirements. Rather than offering a one-size-fits-all solution, we've designed Solubor as a highly concentrated borate powder. This allows you to tailor the dosage to your field's unique boron needs.

Time-saving application

In agriculture, timing is often critical. The faster you can apply your fertilizer, the quicker you can move on to the next task. Solubor's water-soluble formulation saves you valuable time; it dissolves quickly, facilitating rapid applications.

Easy clean-up, less hassle

We all know that farming is hard work, and the last thing you need is more mess to clean up. Solubor doesn't leave behind a sticky, hard-to-clean residue, unlike some other products. It washes off easily with water, saving you both time and effort.

Equipment longevity

The well-being of your application equipment should always be a consideration when selecting a fertilizer. Solubor causes minimal changes to the crystallization temperatures or density of formulations, allowing you to add up to 2.7% Solubor to your liquid fertilizer while keeping crystallization temperatures below 35°F (1.7°C). What this means for you is less stress on your equipment over time.

Budget-friendly boron

Budget constraints are real, and we understand that. Solubor offers a high boron content when dissolved in water, and it often costs less than other solvent-based liquid products per pound of boron. It's not just about cost but also about the value you're getting for your money.

The bottom line

Your fertilization choices can make or break your yield and operational efficiency. That's why we invite you to delve deeper into the benefits of Solubor.

The more informed you are, the better your agricultural choices will be. And, that’s what U.S. Borax is all about—helping you make the best decisions for your agricultural needs. Contact your regional sales representative to learn more about what Solubor can do for you.
