Boron Deficiencies in Cotton

Cotton plants need Boron throughout their life cycle, but maintaining adequate availability of this important micronutrient is crucial to blooming cotton.  Even though small amounts are needed, Boron is essential for healthy growth during flowering and boll development, and aids in the efficient utilization of other nutrients, particularly nitrogen and potassium. Because Boron is immobile in the plant, deficiency symptoms appear on new growth.  Boron deficiencies may show some of the following symptoms:¹ Abnormal uppermost leaves Aborted flowers Abnormal shedding of squares and young bolls Abnormal fruit shed which can result

Micronutrients Important for Soybean Yields

There are 16 essential elements that are important for healthy growth and development of soybeans.  These include the non-mineral elements - carbon, oxygen and hydrogen, and mineral elements which include macronutrients found in most fertilizers - nitrogen, phosphorous and potassium (potash); secondary macronutrients - calcium, magnesium and sulfur; and micronutrients - boron, chloride, copper, iron, manganese, molybdenum and zinc. Soybeans were once thought to be able to survive off of the residual levels of micronutrients left behind in the soil, but the demand for higher-yielding crops is removing more micronutrients
