Dry-Flowable Foliar Nutrient Improved
The world leader in boron agronomy, U.S. Borax, Inc., has improved the only dry-flowable boron nutrient available to American growers -- Solubor? DF ? by reducing its caking problem. Solubor DF is a concentrated microgranular product containing 17.5 percent boron ? or 75 percent more boron than standard liquid products.
Boron is one of seven essential micronutrients necessary for plant growth. The nutrient is vital to fertilization, fruit and seed production. Boron deficiency is the most widespread of all crop deficiencies ? affecting almost all major crops grown around the world. Independent research shows that boron fertilizers can quadruple corn yields and increase cotton yields by more than 500 pound per acre.
