An experiment was conducted during the winter (rabi) season of 2002-03 on old and new alluvial soils in Burdwan and Polba, Hooghly, respectively, in West Bengal, India, to study the effects of boron and lime on the growth and yield of wheat (Triticum aestivum HP-1731). The application of boron (5 or 10 kg borax/ha) alone and in combination with lime (0.5 or 1.0 t/ha) to both soils significantly enhanced the 1000-grain weight and boron content of wheat plants.
