The “Missing Seed” Thing
Explanation: At the top and the bottom of the pod is an amino acid called GABA. This amino acid must move in the pod to fertilize each and every seed in that pod. No GABA no SEED. The nutrient that moves GABA throughout the pod is Boron along with mainly Phosphorous, Manganese, Calcium and other nutrients. Remember Boron along with Phosphorous moves sugars in the plant daily, so if there is an interruption of this or a lack of nutrients – the seed does not become fertilized so there is no seed
