Red or Garden beet

{Beta vulgaris}

Boron Deficiency in Red or Garden Beet

Boron deficiency causes the development of internal black spots. Necrotic areas occur at random in the root or at the surface where disease organisms may enter causing a canker to develop. The necrotic areas render the beet unsuitable for canning. The growing point may die and multiple crowns develop.
