BORON BASED FERTILIZERS
Boron is a microelement with many functions in important processes such as vitamin synthesis, cell wall building, germination of pollen grains, sugar assimilation. Boron deficiency can cause many anomalies in crops reflecting in reduced fertility, rotting of root crops, uneven fruits or poor sugar assimilation. Fertilizers based on boron are used for fruit and vegetable crops, and also for crop farming (sugar beet, soybean, sunflower). Application quantities depend on the type of the plant, time of application and soil quality. For each of the given crops, recommended quantities for application are given in the tables.
For these products we recommend that:
In fruits orchards two treatments should be carried out. The first treatment before blooming, to stimulate pollen grains growth and to induce better flower fertilization. The second treatment apply after harvest, so plants can accumulate boron which will improve their resistance towards winter low temperatures. In vegetable crops we recommend one treatment before flowering. In husbandry crops, usage of these products is highly advisable in crops sensitive to boron deficiency such as soybean, sunflower, rapeseed and sugar beat. Treatments can be carried out together with pesticide treatment.
