Abstract
Following the discovery of severe boron deficiency symptoms on cotton at Magoye Research Station in Zambia a series of experiments on maize, the main staple food of the country, was started. In a three-year trial maize showed no response to up to 7 kg/ha boron. In a separate experiment in which very heavy applications of boron (up to 60 kg/ha) were tested yields were generally very high and even the treatment with the highest boron level still yielded 8,776 kg/ha, proving a high tolerance of maize to excessive levels of boron.
