In this study; In increasing doses, using different boron sources, the transport of boron from the foliar application was tried to be determined. Stanley variety in plum, increasing dose of boric acid and Etidot-67 applied to newly completed leaves and determined boron content of young leaves formed in the same shoot, branches and leaves and branches found in the shoots of the previous year. In the study, 0, 500, 1000 mg B kg-1 doses of boric acid and Etidot-67 were used. In this research, homogeneous growth 18 trees were selected from the Stanley type plum orchard. Five new shoots were selected from each tree and application made on leaves on the shoots that were newly completed. Boron applications were repeated 3 times with an interval of 7 days. The trial was terminated 15 days after the last application. At the end of the experiment, the branches and leaves were taken from the shoots, which were applied from each tree, from the shoots, the application area of which lasted last year and developed after the application area. Applications made; As it affects the boron content of the application area on the selected branches, it also increased the boron contents in the young leaves and branches that are not treated. However, no statistically significant change was observed in the boron contents of aged leaves and branches which comes before the application spot.
