For a century, we've known that boron is an essential nutrient for plants. But what we’ve recently learned is that boron can play a key role in aiding plants with drought resistance.
Katherine Warington was a pioneering scientist whose work on boron and its importance in plant nutrition has had a lasting impact on the field of agriculture.
Boron Day was held in Antigua, Guatemala March 23 and 24, 2023. This event brings together top minds, new innovations, and emerging technology throughout the industry for a packed two-day event. Here's the recap!
Boron deficiency can significantly affect crop yields. This is especially prevalent in South America, particularly agriculture-rich Brazil, where most soils test at low levels of boron.
Arsenic is a chemical element occurring in metals that can be found in soils and is harmful to healthy plant growth. That is why it is important for fertilizer applications to contain arsenic levels that are as low as possible.
Did you miss Boron Day 2021? You can still watch the recorded presentations from the virtual event.
In my first borates primer post, I discussed the different types of borates, solubility by type, and the types of borax U.S. Borax produces. In this post, I’ll cover how borate solubility affects plant absorption and recent research in the field.
Highlighting the importance of boron as a nutrient in various crop management plans, U.S. Borax is proud to sponsor the 2021 Boron Day hosted virtually August 17-19.
Soybeans, like all legumes, have a high boron requirement, necessitating pre- and in-season monitoring via both soil and foliar testing.
The majority of researchers and farmers have recognized the importance of boron in agriculture. Boron is necessary for proper plant nutrition.
