Role of Boron in Citrus Production
Boron and yield
Citrus is highly sensitive to boron producing significant yield responses in trial.
Boron and lime yield, India
Yield increases result from a higher fruit number per tree, minimizing fruit drop and from boosting fruit weight.
Boron and juice content
Adequate supplies of boron have a positive effect on juice content. They will also bring forward ripening and maturity, often improving crop marketability.
Boron and TSS
Boron influences fruit quality by increasing sugars in the fruit.
Boron and vitamin C
Boron can also improve vitamin C content in the fruit.
