Ca- Lack of calcium in the soil results in the soil becoming to acidic. This leads to Mg or Fe deficiency or very slow stunted growth. Treat by foliar feeding with one teaspoon of dolomatic lime per quart of water until condition improves
S- Plants suffering from S deficiencies exhibit yellowing of new growth. Mix one tablespoon of Epsom salts per gallon of water until condition improves.
Mg- Lower leaves yellow and may even turn white while veins remain dark green. Blades die and curl upward
Fe- Leaves on growing shoots turn pale and veins remain dark green. pH imbalances make iron immobile. Foliar feed with chemical fertilizer contain Fe or rusty water.
Mn- Necrotic and yellow spots form on top leaves. Mn deficiency occurs when large amounts of Mg are present in the soil. Foliar feed with any chemical fertilizer containing Mn.
