Disodium Octaborate Tetrahydrate Powder ~ Boron 20% Dose, use and benifits. Boron is an essential micronutrient for plant growth and is used in agriculture as a fertilizer to correct boron-deficient soils. The recommended boron usage and dose in agriculture vary depending on the crop, soil type, and climate conditions.

In general, the optimal range for soil boron concentration is between 0.5 to 3.0 mg/kg, and the recommended boron application rate ranges from 0.5 to 5 kg/ha. However, it is important to note that excessive boron application can be toxic to plants, leading to reduced growth and yield.

As for the specific boron concentration or percentage in fertilizers, 20% is a relatively high concentration and should be used with caution. It is recommended to follow the instructions provided by the fertilizer manufacturer and consult with a local agronomist or agricultural extension service for specific guidance on boron usage and dose in your area.
