ABSTRACT

Boron is a micronutrient required for all plant nutrition. The main functions of boron
relate to cell wall strength and development division, fruit and seed development,
glucose transport and hormone.

Boron (B) is required for all plant growth. Adequate B nutrition is critical for high
yields and qulity of crops. Deficiencies of B result in many anatomical, biochemical,
physiological changes in plants.

The B requirement is much higher for reproductive growth than for vegetative growth in
most plant species. Boron increases flower production and retention pollen tube
elongation and germination, and seed and fruit development

Keywords: Boron, Plant, Deficiencies
