Abstract:

Boron is a micronutrient essential for plant growth and sexual reproduction. Plant requirements for boron are critical but only small amounts are needed to provide adequate growth, hence it is categorised as micro nutrient. Of the mineral nutrients essential for plant growth, boron is frequently considered to have minor role but that does not diminish the importance of boron. Considerable research has been directed for highlighting the importance of boron in crop production. In this regard an effort has been made to spotlight the research for improved role of boron on plants.


Keywords: Micronutrients, Crop production, Boron.
