Farmers will suffer financial losses if yields are low due to the flowering of disturbed crops. Interrupted flowering can be caused by plants suffering from Boron deficiency. Boron (B) is one of the important micro nutrients for plants. Boron has many functions in plant growth. If plants suffer from Boron deficiency, one of them will disrupt pollen growth. In the end, pollination will also be disrupted.
Boron has a role in plant root growth. Therefore Boron deficiency will result in short and little plant roots. Plants will suffer from disturbances in the absorption of necessary nutrients. Eventually, the plant will suffer from growth disorders, so the plant will stunt. The sections of the plant become short due to the disruption of the growth. Even plants can suffer stopping growth.
Farmers can buy Boron as a single micro fertilizer or as a complement in compound fertilizer. When plants enter the generative phase, farmers can supplement the fertilizer with Boron. This is to prevent losses that will be received by farmers due to imperfect fertilization. Interrupted flowering can be caused by plants suffering from Boron deficiency.
Interrupted flowering can be caused by plants suffering from Boron deficiency. What are the symptoms of Boron deficiency?
Apart from the above, Boron deficiency can cause various problems in plants. If this befalls on cash crops, farmers will suffer financial losses. Therefore farmers must pay attention to the adequacy of Boron in plants. Do not let the fertilization process fail because interrupted flowering can be caused by lack of Boron.
Plants suffering from Boron deficiency can affect shoots and shoots. In plants that are at the time of shoot growth, boron deficiency will have a fatal impact. Severe Boron deficiency will result in the growth of shoots stopping and dying.
Plants suffering from Boron deficiency will also interfere with the process of transporting food to plants. This is because Boron deficiency will stop the growth of meristems. This Boron deficiency will cause abnormalities in forming vessels. Disturbances in this process will end in the process of transporting food to plants. In many cases, the stem of the plant becomes stiff so it looks cracked.
Farmers need to assess their agricultural land, whether it has sufficient micro nutrients. Although Boron has immobilized properties, it often lacks boron due to unsupportive soil factors. Land that contains relatively much sand often has very little micro nutrient content in Boron. Likewise on calcareous soil. Lime-rich agricultural land generally has a shortage of Boron.
