BIO-PROTAN®Boron is a liquid compound of boron and organic molecules obtained by hydrolysis of natural protein. The unique formulation with amino acids (the organic molecules and “building blocks” of protein) corrects boron deficiencies stimulating simultaneously the metabolism of the plant. BIO-PROTAN®Boron is a multifunctional product performing at the same time as fertilizer (organic nitrogen), bio-stimulant (free amino acids promote rapid recovery in the event of stress) and boron deficiency corrector.
BIO-PROTAN®Boron is suitable for foliar and soil application; however, we specially recommend a foliar spray because of the complexing and carrier properties of free amino acids formulated in the compound as they lead to the rapid and efficient leaf penetration of boron:
Amino acids are natural chelates able to ligate (“link”) with microelements and form a metal complex. Amino acids are also very effective in conveying the linked microelements through the cells to the sites of utilization, helping to overcome chemical and physical barriers of the leaf cuticle, the cell wall and the lymphatic system. Combining boron and amino acids in foliar spray solutions leads to an increase of treatment efficacy and reduces the fertilizer application dose.
BIO-PROTAN®Boron amino acids applied in soil within a particular pH range preserve boron mineral from insolubility and soil regression keeping it available in the metabolic form mainly used by the plant.
Boron plays an important role in the movement and metabolism of sugars in the plant, for the lignin formation of cell walls and the synthesis of plant hormones and nucleic acids. Boron is an element with little mobility inside the plant; BIO-PROTAN®Boron supply is therefore particularly helpful during times of maximum microelement demand whenever a rapid plant response is required. Boron proteinate provides the micronutrient with a high bioavailability and mobility increasing fruit set and fruit retention by the tree. We recommend the foliar application on sensible crops like grapevine and fruit plants during the pre-flowering period to support flowering and fruit setting.

Dilute BIO-PROTAN®Boron before using it on plants. In case of inexperienced handling we recommend a preliminary test on small areas before extending the treatment to the entire culture. The dosages advised are purely indicative and may vary depending on crop, crop vegetative cycle, climatic conditions and average yields expected.
In the greenhouse and when mixed with sulphur and trace elements apply the lowest recommended dose.
With the exception of the olive grove avoid use in conjunction with copper, stannous, sulphur based products and mineral oils since the combination with free amino acids improves the absorption rate and can result in phytotoxicity.
