As one of the micronutrients that all plants need, boron plays an important role in a number of vital processes in rice growth such as cell wall synthesis, cell membrane functions, root development, pollen tube germination, flower initiation and seed production.
Alfalfa, a common pasture crop, responds especially well to boron fertilizers.
Corn requires high levels of all nutrients to ensure maximum economic yields. Soybeans, like all legumes, have a high boron requirement.
Boron deficiency symptoms and recommendations for oil palm cultivation.
The cooking quality of potatoes may be compromised when the tubers have a boron deficiency.
Boron plays an important role in rice growth including cell wall synthesis, cell membrane functions, root development, pollen tube germination, flower initiation, and seed production.
A practical guide to boron fertilization: Everything from boron in plant nutrition to diagnosing boron deficiency

Without enough boron, fruit and nut trees typically suffer dieback of branches, premature fruit drop, and poor nut or fruit development as well as cracked or misshapen fruit.
Research in vegetable nutrition and physiology has shown that boron is the key element in several plant growth processes affecting quality.
Boron is essential for all plant growth, including wheat and soybeans.
Depending on the boron source (B), the solubility and dissolution time (release of B) may change, impacting the recommended dose and management of B in the crop.
