Boron: Essential Micronutrient for Plant and Animal Nutrition

Urvi Gupta, Hitesh Solanki.


New exciting progress in boron research in the past few years significantly contributed to better understanding of the role of
boron in plants and animals. Many experiments have been carried out to understand the role of boron in plant metabolism.
From that it has been concluded that boron is mainly involved in carbohydrate metabolism and cell division. Except these
two it also affects at least 14 functions in plant. And plants are the main source of Boron for animals as food. Recent studies
have proved that Boron has the potential to influence a number of metabolic processes. Boron has been implicated to
function in a variety of metabolic and physiological systems in humans and animals. This review study was done to explain
the significant involvement of micronutrient Boron in the lifecycle of living organisms.

Key words: Boron, Micro Nutrient, Mineral, Plant nutrition, Toxicity, Deficiency
