Seed vigour is of great importance for seedling establishment and plant productivity. Despite the high boron (B) demand of oilseed rape and the potential benefit of B for improved seed vigour, it is still unclear whether B fertilization to mother plants is effective to enrich B in seeds to an extent that improves seed vigour. We addressed this question and investigated first the dynamics of B enrichment in mother plants and their seeds and then the influence of B on seed vigour using seeds that… CONTINUE READING
