European growers face boron-depleted soils, especially given the demands of widespread crops such as rapeseed, sugar beet, sunflowers, wine grapes, olives, apples, and forestry. Specialized refined boron can help, and offers a variety of application methods to meet growers’ needs.
In this region, growers especially need a refined boron product that can deliver improved crop quality and yield. Climate, weather, and soil conditions vary widely across Europe, as do crops and specific crop needs, from oil seed rape in northern Europe to olive trees in the Mediterranean area. Sandy soils with acidic pH are extremely susceptible to be boron deficiency in Northern Europe. In the south, high calcareous soils also affect the availability of boron. Refined borates are also useful for improving frost-resistance of crops like oil seed rape.
