Borate 46 consists of light grey chips.
15% elemental boron
Borate 46 mixes well with other products.
Segregation may occur when mixed with product with differences of particle size.
Provides boron in both a fast release and slow release form
Used to treat deficiencies in horticultural, pastoral and arable situations
Often applied with starter fertiliser to Boron deficiency prone brassica crops
Promotes growth of legumes (eg white clover) if there is a boron deficiency
Borate 46 provides boron in both a fast release (as sodium borate) and slow release (as calcium borate) form, ideal as part of a starter fertiliser for brassica crops.
Borate 46 is used to treat deficiencies in horticultural, pastoral and arable situations. Particularly applied with starter fertiliser to brassica crops, as they are prone to having boron deficiencies. Also promotes growth of legumes (eg white clover) in pastoral situations if there is a boron deficiency. If a clover only leaf tissue test for boron has results below 13-16 ppm then boron is probably required.
Boron in plants is used for carbohydrates, sugar, metabolism and transport around the plant. It is also used for inhibition of starch formation and for nucleic acid metabolism. Susceptible plants include brassicas and legumes.
There is no known function for boron in animals.
Boron is toxic to germinating seeds therefore should not be sown in direct contact with seed.
Pastoral and Brassica crops
Apply at 40kg of Borate 46 per tonne of fertiliser - based on a spreading rate of 250kg/ha. This will provide 10kg Borate 46/ha.
Bags should be tightly sealed and stored in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight.
