Dan Luepkes from Corn Warriors talks to U.S. Borax about his best practices for using Granubor on to solve boron deficiency on soybeans.
Alfalfa has a higher boron requirement than most crops. For optimum yields of high quality alfalfa, it is essential to maintain adequate supplies of available boron throughout the growing season.
Some bermudagrass varieties may respond to applied boron, especially on sandy soils in high rainfall regions, or with adverse weather conditions during the growing season. Where needed, preplant application of Granubor with the early-season top-dressed NPK fertilizer generally will ensure an adequate boron supply.
Alfalfa, a common pasture crop, responds especially well to boron fertilizers.
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.
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.
Minas Gerais, Brazil (2016-2017): Highest yield
Sao Paulo, Brazil (2013-2015): Consistent yield increase
Parana, Brazil (2015-2016): One year study of Granubor
Parana, Brazil (2014-2015): One year study of Solubor
Boron aids in the transfer of sugars and nutrients from leaves to reproductive organs, and increases pollination and seed development. Corn requires a supply of available boron, especially during tasseling and silking.
