Prairie Farmer recently posted an article on Boron Deficiency in corn. The article indicates that boron deficiency may be more prevalent than we thought. i will certainly be looking more closely at my soil reports. One of the problems with boron management sthat availability is pH dependent. If your pH is not between 6 and 7, you need to correct that first. also keep in mind that most micro-nutrients need to be applied sparingly. To much can poison your plants and soil. Often we look for plant deficiency symptoms, and think we do not have an issue if we don't see it. Timely tissue testing could help with micro-nutrients s well.
