The mineral requirements of peanuts, both the major elements (2, 3; 4, 9,11, 13) and the so-called minor elements (3, 4, 9, lo), have for some time been of interest to Florida workers. The condition of the soils of the state, which are generally sandy and frequently relatively low in available nutrients, prompted a critical reinvestigation of these requirements. A boron deficiency in some of these sandy soils was suspected and our results with that element have progressed far enough to be of general interest and the subject of this report. Piland et al. (14) obtained results indicating a possible improvement in quality of nuts due to thig element and Smith (17) commented on unpublished results to the effect that boron deficiency inhibited peg development, but no one in the knowledge of the writers has reported any marked beneficial effect on peanuts when boron was applied to the soil
