Leguminous cover crops

{Calapogonium mucunoides, Centrosema pubescens and Pueraria phaseoloides}

Boron Deficiency in Leguminous Cover Crops

If leguminous cover crops are boron deficient, growth is stunted. Short thick bines are produced which do not spread over the soil surface. Additionally, the leaves are:

  • Very small
  • Thick
  • Brittle
  • Misshapen

The veins are frequently prominent. Axillary meristems will develop to a limited extent resulting in “prostrate clump” growth habit.
