Agriculture and fertilizer experts are familiar with the 4Rs—the concept that the right fertilizer source, applied at the right rate, in the right time, and in the right place is the best way to increase crop production and profitability while protecting the environment and improving sustainability. But you might not be aware of the key role that the micronutrient boron, when applied in balance, plays in the uptake of other nutrients.
As an essential micronutrient, adequate boron enables plants to properly absorb important macronutrients such as nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, calcium, and magnesium.
Refined boron from U.S. Borax is the right product to address boron deficiency, whatever the crop and region. Our commitment to refinement and quality control provides a fertilizer that mixes well with other nutrients, dissolving completely in liquid applications and creating a uniform, low-dust mix in granular formats. As a result, growers can achieve a more effective application for maximum nutrient availability without concern about the contamination or uneven application rates that are often seen with unrefined or under-refined minerals. Plus, U.S. Borax has a wealth of expert advice, scientific studies, and regional resources to help distributors, agronomists, and growers achieve great results.

Leached soils in Brazil and the surrounding region are often poor in nutrients, acidic, and low in organic matter. Such soils often benefit from fertilization with refined boron, which can improve crop health without introducing contaminants (unlike cheaper mineral products, which also fall short in the reliability of coverage, release, and quality).
