HOMESTRETCH 10% BORON

HOMESTRETCH 10% BORON

Boron is critical to development and growth of new cells in the plant meristem, affecting terminal growth, flowering and fruit development. Boron is also required for protein synthesis, pollination and reproduction. Boron is one of the most common micronutrient deficiencies. Without sufficient levels of boron many plant functions can be impaired. Low B can negatively impact vegetative and reproductive growth, cell and tissue growth and reproductive capacity. HOMESTRETCH™ 10% BORON is an effective, readily available source of boron for soil and foliar applications to field, row, vegetable, fruit, tree, and vine crops.

Use Rate

Apply up to 3 gallons per acre in sufficient
carrier to give complete coverage. Do not
use in soil applications where it will directly
contact the seed. Soil applied boron must be
moved into the root zone to be absorbed by
the plant. This can be accomplished by
irrigation, rainfall, or tillage.

Information

Foliar Application Apply up to 5 quarts per acre in sufficient water for thorough coverage. Use at least 1 gallon of water for each pint of HOMESTRETCHTM 10% BORON. Early morning or late evening applications give the best results. Boron is not easily translocated within the plant, therefore multiple foliar applications at low rates during the growing season are most effective. Allow 14-21 days between treatments. Soil Application Apply up to 3 gallons per acre in sufficient carrier to give complete coverage. Do not use in soil applications where it will directly contact the seed. Soil applied boron must be moved into the root zone to be absorbed by the plant. This can be accomplished by irrigation, rainfall, or tillage. HOMESTRETCHTM 10% BORON may also be applied via drip or sprinkler fertigation using rates listed above. Optimum rate of application will vary depending on treatment in- terval, soil properties (such as pH, organic matter content, texture), weather conditions, time of year, plant species and its nutrient requirements. For best results, follow s oil/tissue test recommendation.
