Boron effects on red clover seed production and quality

Abstract: Boron (B) is a critical micronutrient for many smallseeded legume crop species, including alfalfa and clovers grown for seed. Under mild to moderate B deficiency, legume growth and development may not be severely affected, but seed yield may be reduced (Mozafar, 1993). Boron is required for reproduction, and a deficiency adversely affects the formation of terminal growing points and flowering. When B is deficient, plants produce fewer flowers, and seed production may be inhibited due to inadequate pollination.
