<< I think I will contact my local agricultural extension and find out
levels of boron are in the soil type here. >>

I doubt my local agent would know. Anybody out near Cooley's or
Schreiner's want to try to find out for us?
A technical publication about naturally occurring amounts of metals and
trace elements in different regions of the US does exist. I will see if
I can find out what is considered 'deficient' for boron - since Brady
doesn't mention Oregon as being deficient, we would then know levels are
naturally above that amount.
