Anyone done any boron at plant? I’m playing around with banding some this year but that is pricey too.

Be careful with boron because it can be toxic.

I was maybe going to run it in a 0x2. Ive heard in furrow would be a bad idea

Verified FBN Member (MI)

I run a qt of Borosol 10% from nutrien, it's about $4/qt. Run it in my 2x2 and definitely not in furrow

I’ve tried Boron in my 2x2 starter. I think that’s too early for a one and done application as tissue tests came back as deficient later on ...

If you go with chelated boiron you can use it as a foliar best bang for your buck

I though that boron was only taken in at the root tip.

I put one gallon per ac on 2x2 and did not see any difference in tissue test or yield. I think it was to early and we had to wet of a spring...

We use 7 gal of 32 and 3 gal of thiosul out the back on the ground. Works really well in our sandy soils and gives plant a little boost.

Totally tubular?

Verified FBN Member (MI)

9 gallon of 28% + 6 gallon of thio. Has been my best RIO. To date.

Verified FBN Member (NE)

Not totally tubular bus similar just dribbled out the back. This acts similar to a nitrogen stabilizer

10-34-0 is higher in salt content and in sandy or drier soils it can burn and you get no K or micros with it

I start with a soil test first. If you get a micro pack you could be adding something that could hurt your yield. I have found when I y-drop...
