The Challenges of Boron Fertilizer Management
Boron deficiency can make it extremely difficult for a plant to grow to its full potential. Most plants are not able to remobilize boron from old to new tissue as with other nutrients, such as nitrogen. Understanding whether a nutrient is mobile or immobile in plants and the available solutions to correct boron deficiency can help you overcome this problem and enjoy a fruitful harvest.
