Growers should know the relative boron needs for each specific crop, as well as the water soluble available boron supply in the soil, to determine the optimum rate and method of applying sufficient boron for optimum yields.
Solubor is an excellent boron source for inclusion in liquid fertilizers because it is readily soluble and does not react with other components of these fertilizers.
Solubor is highly water soluble, and is commonly applied in foliar sprays. Because the season for the most effective foliar application of boron is short, foliar sprays must be prepared quickly and accurately.
Boron nutrition is a special concern in crop production; growers want to ensure that the available boron supply is sufficient for optimum nutrition but not so high as to result in reduced yields from an over-supply.
The efficacy of some pesticides may be affected by increased pH of the pesticide tank mixes. Inclusion of an appropriate buffer to control the pH of tank mixes is suggested for those pesticides whose efficacy is known to be reduced by increased pH.
