Boron Deficiency in Pea

It is likely that seed reserves of boron will be sufficient for normal growth and a deficiency is only expected when seed produced in a boron-deficient area is used. Boron-deficient seedlings are stunted and have short internodes. The stems are thick and the plant will have a bushy appearance. The young leaflets show a marginal chlorosis and have a tendency to curl inwards. Pod abortion occurs and pods that develop will have thick walls, be small, and often contain few or even no seed.
