Biota Boron

Biota Boron is a concentrated boron micronutrient. Due to the unique production process, the nutrients are 100% present in solution and can therefore be taken up directly by the plant. The product is allowed for use in organic agri- and horticulture.

Biota Boron is important for transporting assimilates in the plant and has an important role in cell division. It ensures a stronger attachment of the fruit and promotes the formation of shoots. Boron regulates the calcium absorption. The lack of boron resembles iron deficiency. The shelf life of bamboo is improved using boron. This technique is used widely. Boron is easily captured on heavy soils such as clay. On light soils it is easily rinsed out.
