Boron Deficiency in FORAGE CROPS

Forage Crops

Crops require adequate boron for nodulation and nitrogen fixation, as well as proper root growth. In clovers, boron deficiency typically shows up in stunted seed production, as this micronutrient is vital for proper pollen germination and pollen tube growth.
