See for yourself how micronutrient deficiencies affect sugar beet development
Sugar-beet plants grown in sand and watered daily with a nutrient solution without boron, with just 50% magnesium and sulphur requirements. The pot on the right side was sprayed with 5kg/ha YaraVita Betatrel DF just before filming started. YaraVita Betatrel is no longer available but the closest product choice is YaraVita Brassitrel Pro.
