Abstract
  • Boron deficiency or toxicity can reduce yield and quality of vegetables. Seven vegetable crops, varying from low to high boron requirements were grown in field plots at Corvallis in 1987. Leaf-B and yield components of green bean, cucumber, potato, carrot, tomato, broccoli and table beet were examined under conditions of fall or spring soil applied B at a 5 kg/ha rate on two soil types. Soil tests on control plots indicated B levels of .39 mg/kg and .20 mg/kg in the top 23 cm of soil in the silty clay loam and sandy loam soil, respectively. Fall or spring application of B increased soil B levels in the top 23 cm on the silty clay loam soil to .68 mg/kg and .37 mg/kg, and on the sandy loam soil to .81 mg/kg and .42 mg/kg, respectively. Boron application had no effect on yield or yield components except in green beans where spring applied B on the sandy loam reduced percent of premium grade pods (sieve sizes 1-4). Leaf-B levels were not affected in cucumber, carrot, or tomato on either soil. Boron application on both soils had a significant effect on leaf-B levels in bean, broccoli and table beet. Potato leaf-B was significantly affected only on the sandy loam soil.
