ABSTRACT
The article reports that U.S. Borax Inc., is the world's leading producer of boron fertilizers. The California-based company has been at the forefront of crop research since 1940, and continues to break new ground in boron science. Boron is one of seven essential plant micronutrients, but its effects are macro. Boron plays a vital role in plant reproduction, controlling flowering, pollen production, germination and fruit development. Peanuts need a constant supply of boron during all stages of growth, but especially from flowering to harvest.
