Abstract

Boron deficiency in Spanish peanuts has been observed in several countries of Southeastern Oklahoma. Boron deficiency is generally restricted to small areas and commonly occurs in soils that are characteristically very sandy low in organic matter, and generally low in available boron (hot-water-soluble boron). The severity of the boron deficiency seems to vary from year being most severe during periods of drought. The general extent of the problem is not really known, but in those areas where the deficiency occurs both yield and peanut quality may be severely reduced. Boron deficiency in peanuts causes what has been termed "hollow heart of peanuts."
