Dan Luepkes from Corn Warriors talks to U.S. Borax about his best practices for using Granubor on to solve boron deficiency on soybeans.
Wisconsin (2020-2021): Granubor showed a better performance than the control at all rates even though not statistically different.
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.
How much arsenic does your micronutrient fertilizer contain? Granubor is guaranteed to have low arsenic content.
Paraná, Brazil (2020-2021): Application of 3 kg Granubor gave the highest barley grain yield compared to the control and acidulated ulexite.
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.
