Boron Deficiency in Crimson Clover

Together with alfalfa and berseem clover (T. alexandrinum), crimson clover is rated as being very sensitive to boron deficiency. The symptoms of boron deficiency are very similar to those reported in other clovers, namely stunting and eventual malformation of young leaves and shoots, with red and yellow tints developing on leaves.
