2019 PFR PROVEN - LATE-SEASON NUTRITION
When might I need boron in my corn?
LATE-SEASON NUTRITION: BORON
WHEN MIGHT I NEED BORON IN MY CORN?
Boron has a unique uptake curve with a spike in uptake at flowering. Boron is mobile in soil water, thus uptake can be limited in dry spells. Because boron is mineralized from organic matter, fields with coarse-textured soils are more likely to respond to foliar applications of boron.
65% OF BORON IS TAKEN UP DURING 1/5 OF THE GROWING SEASON.
DID YOU KNOW?
A 200 bushel corn crop requires about 0.6 lb. of boron.
LATE-SEASON NUTRITION: BORON PLUS®
Boron is one of the micronutrients that has garnered attention in recent years as both soil and tissue tests are indicating a trend of insufficient levels. Practical Farm Research has shown an advantage to applying Boron Plus in our foliar fungicide applications at VT as boron plays a role in pollination and kernel set.
Key Benefits: Low application rate and neutral pH
