Boron deficiency can significantly affect crop yields. This is especially prevalent in South America, particularly agriculture-rich Brazil, where most soils test at low levels of boron.
Did you miss Boron Day 2021? You can still watch the recorded presentations from the virtual event.
In my first borates primer post, I discussed the different types of borates, solubility by type, and the types of borax U.S. Borax produces. In this post, I’ll cover how borate solubility affects plant absorption and recent research in the field.
Highlighting the importance of boron as a nutrient in various crop management plans, U.S. Borax is proud to sponsor the 2021 Boron Day hosted virtually August 17-19.
The impact of micronutrients on crop production is growing in importance. Learn more in this article from Fertilizer Focus
Maximum commodity crop yields call for both micro and macronutrients to be available when and where a plant requires them. As one of eight essential micronutrients, boron is critical to reaching corn and soybean crop yield potential.
The majority of researchers and farmers have recognized the importance of boron in agriculture. Boron is necessary for proper plant nutrition.
Boron deficiency can make it extremely difficult for a plant to grow to its full potential. Most plants are not able to remobilize boron from old to new tissue as with other nutrients, such as nitrogen. Understanding whether a nutrient is mobile or immobile in plants and the available solutions to correct boron deficiency can help you overcome this problem and enjoy a fruitful harvest.
Technology provides high-speed access to information about every topic and in every industry. People are learning to approach everything we do with more precise information. This evolution is especially true in agriculture. As agronomists and farmers tackle critical issues, they increasingly rely on advanced knowledge to inform their solutions.
