BASFOLIAR BORON SP is a soluble micro-granulated fertilizer with boron for foliar application of crops that have increased boron requirements.
Boron takes part in the synthesis and transportation of carbohydrates, in oxidation-reduction reactions, protein and nucleic turnover and synthesis of phytohormones. The element improves the flower formation, germination of pollen tubes and pollination. Boron has a positive effect on the growth of the root system, the structure of cell walls and development of apical points of plants.
The most sensitive to deficiency of this element are: rape, sunflower, sugar beet, potatoes, vegetables, fruit and berry crops.
Boron deficiency in rape decreases the number of pods and seeds in them, reduces the oil content in seeds. Small leaves are formed that do not develop. In the early stages of rape growth the deficiency of the element can be identified by anthocyanin color of young leaves. Young beet leaves become chlorotic color, dry-rot of root crop is developed.
