A couple options to proactively address boron deficiency are:

  1. A soil application followed by a foliar application
  2. Two foliar applications - One at herbicide timing followed by an application at fungicide timing.  

Due to the compatibility of the ReLeaf, NRG and Kinetic product lines with herbicides and fungicides, these product options fit simply and easily into an integrated crop plan to address boron deficiency.
