One of the common plant nutritional deficiencies is calcium-boron deficiency.

Normally fed plants contain between 25 and 100 ppm boron.

20 ppm boron in plant dry matter is considered to be sufficiency limit.

However, there are significant differences between the boron content of different plant groups. Generally, boron contents of dicotyledonous plants are higher than monoltiledonous plants.

Boron requirements of these plants are higher. Boron deficiency is rarely seen in cereals due to the low boron content and requirements of these plants.

Diseases such as hill disease in tobacco, self-rot in sugar beet, mushroom seed house in apples, brown rot in cauliflower, broken stem in celery, brown seed in radish, brown spots in potato and clover end leaves are nutritional disorders caused by boron deficiency.
