Boron Day was held in Antigua, Guatemala March 23 and 24, 2023. This event brings together top minds, new innovations, and emerging technology throughout the industry for a packed two-day event. Here's the recap!
Boron deficiency is a serious issue that can affect the yield and quality of commodity crops. Without adequate boron, plants are unable to complete their life cycle. But what does a deficiency look like and why is it so important for plant growth? Causes and effects of boron deficiency, and the best ways to address it, are different in every crop.
Product origin is a hot topic. Whether you’re curious about where the cotton fibers in your bed sheets came from, or where the berries in your morning yogurt grew, sourcing is top of mind lately. For U.S. Borax, the answer is right there in our name.
In many states, alfalfa is the commodity crop that is most sensitive to boron deficiency. Many of those same states are facing historic drought—a combination that presents intrinsic challenges for alfalfa producers.
Looking forward, 2019 will have carryover effects on the 2020 cropping season. How producers align their management practices heading into the growing season can make the difference between a successful crop and lagging yields.
