Boron Deficiency in india

Growers in this region have a high agricultural demand for boron, which is especially deficient throughout Bangladesh and eastern India. Monsoon patterns and depletion from the variety of high-yield crops in the area mean that refined boron supplementation is vital to help prevent fruit and flower drop and protect growers’ livelihoods. Both family growers and larger land holdings can benefit from the application of high-quality, highly available refined boron.

Boron Deficiency in the Region

As one of the most common professions in the region, farming is vital to Bangladesh. However, flooding and other severe weather, improper distribution of fertilizer, and regular production of high-yield crops such as rice can reduce the availability of naturally occurring boron in the soil.

Growers in India also face boron deficiencies due to weather patterns (monsoons) and crop patterns. Furthermore, growing consumer demand for high-quality fruits and vegetables create added pressure for high yields and optimal growth.
