Deficiency Symptoms

Post by lucky1 » Wed Nov 21, 2007 2:19 pm

Found it! Had been digging in my files looking for a nutrient deficiency list I copied from a book (source: forgotten :| )

Lack of/or Levels too low of:
Nitrogen = overall yellow leaf, including veins.

Magnesium = yellow between veins (resembles iron deficiency)

Boron = small, stunted new leaves that appear unusually thick. Curly edges.

Potassium = Older leaves browning, edges drying, leaf crinkling and splotching.

Manganese = mottling new leaves with checkering effect between veins.

Iron = yellowing of all parts of leaf except veins.

Sulfur = lack of pigment in all parts of new leaves.

Hope this list is helpful.

Thanks Barb. So far I'm okay but will need to watch closely as time goes on.
