Boron is essential for the growth and development of quality crops. The nutrient plays a key role in plant functions like cell wall formation, structural integrity, energy uptake, pollination and more. And, considering boron deficiency causes problems like stunted growth and reduction in root formation, early application is recommended.
From promoting maturity and improving seed set to maintaining stability and function of plants cell wall membranes, boron contributes many functions to proper plant growth.
Essential in plant growth and cell development, and even more critical in seed (grain) development, it is important to have adequate boron available in the soil to ensure optimal growth, especially in the reproductive stages of the growing season. Ample boron supply is also necessary for nitrogen fixation in legume crops.
Boron enhances the uptake of Ca, Mg and K and aids in the use and regulations of other nutrients like phosphorus and potassium through a healthy root structure.
As an important factor in cell growth, B deficiency can be easily identified through the growing tips of the root or shoot as well as:
Boron is one of the most commonly deficient nutrients brought on by several different causes. A few factors causing B deficiency and lack of availability include:
Set crops up for success and give your yield a boost with Moxon B. Early application improves root growth, stress tolerance, and water and nutrient uptake.
Equipped with 7.5% foliar boron and our patented Levesol® — an advanced, patented nutrient efficiency solution with a scientifically-proven chelate. This unique formulation makes phosphorous, zinc and other micronutrients more available to plants. That means healthier, heartier, and more plentiful crops.
