Boron; CEU eligible, $40 fee
Boron, perhaps the least understood of all micronutrients! In this session we will spend 1.5 hours doing a deep dive on the importance of Boron to your cropping practices and what are the optimum levels in soils for plant availability.
Topics will include its essential role in the plant for processes like: sugar transportation; cell wall synthesis; lignification; cell wall structure; carbohydrate metabolism; respiration; root growth and pollination to name a few.
The session will also cover boron deficiency symptoms and identification and what are the optimum plant tissue levels for quality and yield. We will cover mobility and uptake mechanisms; how boron availability can be dramatically impacted by CEC and pH; how K availability is impacted by boron; how best to apply/incorporate boron into your nutrition program, and the role of boron in soil health.
