Along with Brazil, Paraguay, Uruguay, and Bolivia face leached soils that are often lack nutrients and are acidic and low in organic matter—perfect conditions for boron deficiency. As agriculture assumes even greater economic importance in South America, producers can make even marginal land more productive by investing in a sound micronutrient management program.
The addition of refined boron can lead to higher yields and more efficient fertilization. Boron enables the absorption and use of other macronutrients, along with providing important plant health benefits on its own. Subpar products might cost less up front, but high-quality refined boron is more cost competitive in the long run.
