Abstract:

The occurrence of micronutrient deficiencies in crops has increased markedly in recent years due to intensive cropping, soil erosion, leaching, liming of acid soils, reduced use of manures, increased purity of chemical fertilizers and use of marginal lands for crop production. Among the micronutrients, the boron plays an important role in flowering and fertilization process and hence boosting yield and quality of crop produce. Response of legume crops to boron application suggested that boron deficiency drastically reduced nodulation, growth and yield of legumes because of inadequate supply of carbohydrates to bacteria in the root nodules and insufficient conversion of starch to soluble sugars. Application of boron also markedly increases yield and quality of oil seed crops. The literature on the significance of Boron in growth as well as physiological functions of pulses and oil seed crops have been reviewed and presented.
