Boron Deficiency in cereals and Sugar Cane crops

Cereals and Sugar Cane

Corn crops typically display irregular kernel distribution and reduced growth as initial signs of boron deficiency. Rice and other grains (such as wheat, barley, oats, and rye) can suffer from chlorosis and plant sterility. In sugar cane, lack of sufficient boron often causes lesions, necrosis, and poor leaf development.
