Boron Deficiency in china

Like many areas of the world, much of China features boron-deficient soils. The issue is of particular concern in Guangxi, Guangdong, Yunnan, Xinjiang, Liaoning, Heilongjiang, Jilin, Henan, Guizhou, and Shandong provinces. China’s growers and fertilizer producers also face challenges related to fertilizer use and identification of high-quality products. Fortunately, U.S. Borax can help.
