Buffel grass

{Cenchrus ciliaris}

Boron Deficiency in Buffel grass

The newly emerging leaves fail to unroll. They remain white, wither and then die back from the tip. Tips of older leaves may also die back. Leaf margins may crack and white streaks, which coalesce, often develop between the veins. Plants are likely to be stunted but no reduction in tillering is expected.
