Effect of excess grain boron concentrations on early seedling development and growth of wheat locations
Aims

To examine the effect of high grain boron concentraoiotn on the growth of wheat genotypes with a range of boron sensitivities.

Key messages
  • Despite seed boron concentrations being very high (>20 mg/kg) there was no detectable effect on seedling emergence or growth.
  • The amount of boron in the shoots was similar irrespective of the amount of boron in the grain.
  • It would appear that grain boron is not mobilised to the developing seedling.
