Spotting Iron Deficiency in Plants:
- The basis for this article is spotting, preventing, and curing Leaf Chlorosis. Leaf Chlorosis is identified by yellow leaves with green veins. This is the most obvious symptom in plants, other being poor growth and leaf loss, but these are often coupled with chlorosis. According to the article, the cause is usually not low iron in the soil, rather the soil is keeping the plant from absorbing the iron it needs.
There are four outline causes of poor iron consumption.
- High pH
- Too much clay in the soil
- Compacted or soil is too wet
- Too much phosphorus
