Its functions are related to cellular growth and flower development. At flowering, the micronutrient deficiency reduces male-fertility due to damage to microsporogenesis and to the pollen tube growth. This work aims to define the phases of higher sensibility of the culture, with the purpose of identifying appropriate times for applying of boron to the rice crop. Boron application, in form of sodium borate (Na2B4O7....
