Magnesium deficiency

Symptoms: Symptoms of magnesium deficiency start on older leaves. Chlorosis between the veins progresses from the margins to the middle of the leaflets. The veins remain green and white respectively.
Affect: Severe deficiency leads to necrotic spots between the veins. Old leaves are stiff and prematurely fall down.

Soil/Drip:Ferromag 5kg/acre
Benefit:Helps in photosynthesis,starch translocation

Sulphur deficiency

Symptoms: Chlorosis starts in young leaves and proceeds to the older leaves with ongoing deficiency. Leaves turn uniformly light green or yellow.
Affect: They are stiff. Often only thin petioles are formed Later on affected leaves weather and curl inwards.

Solution
Product:Primasulf 3-4ml/lit, fertisol 5gm/lit
Soil/Drip: -
Benefit:Improves special character in crop

Copper deficiency

Symptoms: Copper deficiency occurs very seldom. Affected plants show chlorosis on expanding and mature leaves.
Affect: Heart necrosis might also be caused by Cu undersupply.

Solution
Product:Phosphocop 2-3ml/lit
Soil/Drip: -
Benefit:Serves to intensify flavour and colour in vegetables and colour in flowers

Boron deficiency

Symptoms: Symptoms start on the younger leaves. They remain small, are stiff and light green. Margins turn reddish or brown. Older leaves are curled down and may show reddish discoloration or chlorosis. Development of curds is retarded and only light curds are built.
Affect: They are more or less brown. Several leaves and bracts penetrate curd surface. Taste is bitter. Boron deficiency on cauliflower results in high yield losses.

Solution
Product: Boron 20 1gm/lit, Potabor super-2-3gm/lit
Soil/Drip: -
Benefit:Translocation of sugars and help in pollination

Zinc deficiency

Symptoms: Young leaves become small.
Affect: Curd colour will be affected.

Solution
Product:Chelamin plus1-2gm/lit
Soil/Drip: -
Benefit:Helps in activation of enzymes

Iron deficiency

Symptoms: Chloroses of the younger leaves are typical symptoms of Fe deficiency.In the initial phase of symptom development the leaf laminas become chlorotic, while the leaf veins remain green.
Affect: Ongoing lack of Fe causes growth depression of roots and overhead plant parts without any leaf deformation.

Solution

Soil/Drip: Ferromag 5kg/acre, Ferromix-5kg/acre
Benefit:Helps in electron transport chain and helps in photosynthesis

Manganese deficiency

Symptoms: Interveinal fields of younger leaves brighten whereas the veins remain green. With ongoing deficiency youngest leaves turn completely yellow.
Affect: Leaves are smaller than normal.

Solution
Product:Mn-chel- 1-2 ml/lit of water or mobomin 1 gm/lit of water
Soil/Drip:Agromin soil plus-5kgs/acre ( soil application)
Benefit: -

Molybdenum deficiency

Symptoms: Distorted leaves with reduced leaf area and chlorotic leaf margins.
Affect: "Whiptail" formation. Symptoms begin at the younger leaves.

Solution
Product: Mobomin 2g/lit, boron-20 -2gm/lit, combical 5gm/lit
Soil/Drip: -
Benefit: Control whiptail formation
