Boron, an essential micronutrient of the plant, in high concentrations causes a toxicity that causes serious foliar problems such as chlorosis (lack of chlorophyll), burns, defoliation and even the death of the tree or that the production of fruits visibly decrease.
The high concentrations of this element are affecting citrus in some areas of eastern Spain, since these crops are not very tolerant and very sensitive to excess of this element in the soil, because they accumulate it at high speed.
Silicon with low molecular weight molecules
For this reason, Zoberbac Agrocompany launches an innovative treatment method for this problem with Zumsil Plus, silicon with low molecular weight molecules.
Treatments with Zumsil Plus in fields affected by excess of this nutrient ensure that boron does not affect the plant because it neutralizes and encapsulates this element, thus ceasing to interfere with the proper development and growth of the plant. The applications are made between 4 and 8 times, in a radicular way and with quantities that will vary between half a liter and two liters per hectare.
