Boron Deficiency in Oil Crops

Oil Crops

Coconut, oil palm, and other oil crops suffer frond and leaf malformation, particularly hook leaf and leaflet shatter. In olive crops, growers might see premature fruit drop. Peanut growers often see hollow heart as a result of boron deficiency. Similar issues affect other oil crops.
