Boron deficiency made worse by

  • Sandy soils
  • Alkaline soils
  • Soils low in organic matter
  • High levels of nitrogen
  • High levels of calcium
  • Cold wet weather
  • Periods of drought

Boron is important for

  • Increases nutrient levels in the crop for better spring regrowth
  • Improved flowering and more even maturity
  • Boosts grain yield and oil content of seed
