Low levels of hot water soluble boron (Hiranburana and Chawachati, these proceedings) have been found in many series of the major soils of northern Thailand. Boron deficiency has been identified in farmers' peanut crops throughout the Chiang Mai Valley (Netsangtip et al., these proceedings). However, the four major food legumes of northern Thailand - green gram, black gram, soybean and peanut - have been found to differ significantly in their response to boron deficiency.
