Pomegranate Fruit and Boron

Pomegranate fruit is an excellent source of vitamins C and K, antioxidants, and other minerals. However, the fruit may lose its quality due to fruit cracking. This is due to inadequate water management or lacking essential micronutrients such as boron and calcium.

Canola Needs Boron to Thrive

Canola is a Brassica family member with especially high boron requirements. Boron deficiency significantly impacts seed production; yields are doubled when 2 lbs of boron per acre are applied to the canola field with no visual anomalies.

Boron Deficiency in Woody Plants

Boron Deficiency In Woody Plants

Boron deficiency is widespread around the globe and constrains the growth and development of agriculture and forestry due to the lack of Boron in soil. Trees have a large body size, longer lifespan, and more Boron reserves than herbaceous plants, implying that woody species are more likely to suffer from long-term or mild Boron deficiency.

Boron Levels in Apple Orchards

Too much or too little Boron can be harmful when growing fruit. Apple farmers are using scientific approaches to get the right balance of Boron at acceptable levels for nutritious apples. Apples contain many health benefits. A medium apple contains 0.66 mg of Boron, fibre, vitamin C, and potassium.

Nitrogen and Boron Fertiliser Price Rises

Nitrogen and Boron Fertiliser Price Rises: The rising cost of chemicals puts pressure on farmers of staple crops such as corn and wheat as they emerge from dormancy. Higher prices may lead to smaller spring plantings, which make up roughly a third of European grain production. Nitrogen is a crucial chemical whose price point is rising significantly. Its efficacy is proven. Does this also point to a rise in value and demand for boron?

Boron in Agriculture

The use of boron is a crucial component to farming success. Because without adequate levels, crops cannot grow or can harvest successfully. Soil with inadequate amounts of elemental boron does not provide enough nutrients that plants need to survive. Thus, it leads them into an unhealthy state which causes their growth rates to decrease immensely. This happens not just when first planted but also during maturity and harvest periods.

Boron for Plants

Boron for plants is an important micronutrient for plant growth. Boron deficiency in plants can lead to stunted growth and death of the plant. In addition, boron helps stop deforestation by preventing trees from taking up nutrients they require due to a lack of boron.
