Boron Deficiency in Alsike Clover

Plants are stunted. The leaflets are likely to show an interveinal yellowing and often have a bronzed appearance with the veins remaining dark green. Leaves at the shoot tips will be malformed. Flower stems will be short and few flower heads are likely to develop. Pollen germination and tube growth is poor when either pollen or pistil is deficient in boron.
