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.

 

 

OBSERVATION

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®

 

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

 

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
