ABSTRACT
The article presents an interview with Jim Carswell of Frontier. He says that a series of replicated experiments to investigate responses to borons in winter wheat has interested customers. He states that boron is generally less available on chalk or over-limed soils. He mentions that the soil calcium may have acted as antagonist to the uptake of boron from soil by the plant roots.
