Boron is involved in cell wall formation, stabilization and lignification, and xylem differentiation. It is needed to ensure normal development of new tissues from roots to flowers and fruit. Boron is responsible for pollen germination and pollen tube formation and activation. Thus, poor boron supply results in poor flower and fruit formation. In severe cases it causes ‘blossom blast’ where flowers dry out and are shriveled at bloom.
