SL366: Field Symptoms of Boron Toxicity and Deficiency in Florida Peanuts

Figure 3. Peanut field with boron deficiency. Note lack of normal vegetative growth appearance as a result of compacted branch terminals. Normal fields would have lapped the middles with foliage and branches. Foliar application of boron to this field corrected deficiency symptoms shown in Figures 4 and 5, restoring normal growth and bloom production within several weeks.
