Boron Deficiency in Drug, Fumitory, and MasticaTORY Crops

Drug Fumitory and Masticatory Crops

Stunted growth, decreased seedpod formation, and abnormal flowering can all result from boron deficiency in crops such as fenugreek, kola, poppy, and tobacco. Lack of sufficient boron can also make these plants more susceptible to fungal and bacterial problems.
