Why Quality Matters

Low-Quality Boron Can Do More Harm Than Good 

Not all borate products produce the same quality or level of useable boron. When it comes to boron, product price is not always the best measure of true return on investment (ROI). A less expensive product can end up costing more over the long term if you need to purchase and apply more of it or if it does more harm than good.

Only high-quality, highly available, refined boron has a long-lasting, significant, positive effect on crop yield.
