In A Nutshell September 2018 - Article correction

CORRECTION: The "Boron Deficiency in Almonds and Pistachios" article recommended a soil application of Solubor at a rate of 50 lbs/acre. However, this is the rate for Borax not solubor, which is approximately 10.5% boron (Solubor is 20%), and added the pounds of actual boron/acre.

The corrected sentences now read:

"Major boron deficiencies can be corrected via a soil application (major deficiencies would be far below the critical value). In both almonds and pistachios, broadcast 25 to 50 lbs of Borax per acre (about 2-4 lbs of actual boron). Make sure to take into account soil texture: lighter textured soils should have lower rates of application."

Please see the complete corrected article in the attached document.
