{Raphanus raphanistrum subsp. Sativus}

Boron Deficiency in Radish

The leaves of boron-deficient radish are deformed, brittle, and chlorotic. In cases of severe boron deficiency, the leaf tip dies. The roots crack and are pale in color. The water-soaked flesh may show brown flecks. Boron deficiency can increase the production of thiocyanates, which are known giotrogens.
