Boron Deficiency in Vegetable Crops

Vegetable Crops

Wilting shoots, poor bud development, bud death, swollen stems, and pith cavities are all signs of boron deficiency in a variety of vegetables. Plant dwarfing and death can occur. Lack of boron not only reduces yield, it can severely damage the quality of existing plants.
