  1. PLANT NUTRIENT DEFICIENCY

  2. DEFICIENCY SYMPTOMS • Nitrogen- Stunted growth, pale yellow color, and burning of tips and leaf margins • Phosphorus- Small root growth, spindly stalk, delayed maturity, and purple discoloring of leaves • Potassium- Slow growth, scorched margins on leaves, and shriveled seed or fruit

  3. SYMPTOMS CON’T. • Calcium- Terminal Bud dies, blossom shed premature, and leave margins scalloped • Magnesium- Yellowing of leaves between veins, thin curved up leaves, and tissue may dry and die • Sulfur- Small spindly plants, light green color, and delay in maturity

  4. SYMPTOMS CON’T • Boron- Death of terminal growth, “Witch’s Broom Effect”, and thickened curled wilted chlorotic leaves • Copper- Stunted growth, poor pigmentation, and death of leaf tip. • Manganese- Interveinal chlorosis of young leaves and no distinction between veins and interveinal areas

  5. SYMPTOMS CON’T • Molybdenum- Stunting and lack of vigor and marginal scorching cupping of leaves • Zinc- Decrease in stem length and reduced fruit bud formation • Chlorine- Wilting, followed by chlorosis, and excess branching of lateral roots • Iron- Leaves yellowish or whitish and affected leaves curl up

  6. CAUSES OF SYMPTOMS • Nutrient Availability- Sometimes nutrient may be tied up in the soil due to being in a form that the plant cannot use • SOIL pH- Soil acidity or low pH reduces the amount of some nutrients available to the plant in the soil
