This region’s weather patterns and boron-thirsty crops make it difficult to maintain adequate B levels. Many growers can benefit from an annual application of refined boron.
Sandy soils, high rainfall, and low soil fertility can create less than optimal growing conditions. High yield growers replenish their soil with boron to ensure maximum production.
Valuable export crops like rice and sugarcane remove large amounts of boron from the soil. Growers recognize the value of B to offset the effects of intensive cultivation and achieve maximum yields, season after season.
Certain crops are more susceptible to boron deficiency than others. To find out what boron deficiency may look like in your field, click a crop below.
This refined U.S. Borax product is made from the dehydration and fusion of borax. Depending on the grade, Anhybor can be used to produce boron-enriched compound fertilizers or to coat different fertilizer products, such as NPK blends with the aid of a binder.

A fine crystalline borate ideal for NPK compound fertilizers and suspensions. Manufactured as free-flowing granules, Fertibor is easily handled and offers superior flow and consistency.
A pure, 100% water-soluble micronutrient that meets boron demand during the growing season. Made especially for bulk blenders, Granubor helps to ensure uniform distribution in nutritional blends and in the field.
A concentrated, highly soluble, and fast dissolving powder that is ideal for foliar and other sprays. With the highest concentration of boron in any approved product, Solubor is an economical choice for nutritional formulations.
First and only aqueous suspension of sodium borate microcrystals.
Because zinc and boron deficiency are widespread around the world, a product with both nutrients is a good fit in many regions. Zincubor brings these two important micronutrients together in one product.
