Rhodes grass

{Chloris gayana}

Boron Deficiency in Rhodes Grass

Boron deficiency in young leaves of rhodes grass typically includes the following symptoms:

  • White streaks develop between the veins, particularly near the leaf margins
  • Leaves tend to roll inwards

As the deficiency becomes more severe, larger and more numerous white areas develop, and the new leaves wither and die shortly after emergence. There is an increased tillering, and death of some of the growing points can be expected.
