Indian mustard

{Brassica juncea}

Boron Deficiency in Indian mustard

Boron deficiency causes young Indian mustard leaves to become deformed and curled. They are usually rough, thick, and leathery. The growing points die and axillary shoots develop, which themselves become moribund and die. In severe cases, flower buds will be shed prematurely and the flowers that form are likely to be malformed. In less severe cases, seed set will be restricted.
