  • Nutrient deficiency identification

    Hi all,

    Wondering if anyone has any experience with what nutrient deficiency could be in this pic. It’s on one of the top newer leaves. The trees apical bud has closed up as well but is still bright green. I’m assuming it’s a secondary nutrient, maybe iron or magnesium? Any input would be great!

      Looks like it needs N but over watering can look like this as well. The NE has been pretty wet the last few weeks.

        If it was an older lower leaf, nitrogen would be correct. but an upper leaf means magnesium iron sulfur for or some thing other than nitrogen. I have the same appearance but it’s on the lower leaves. Go figure

        jessup42 do leaves that follow that have same issue after attempting to correct the micro nutrient deficiency?

        I guess it would depend on how quickly the plant could correct itself corresponding with your nutrient application. The lines could be very blurry there, if you even are able to correctly identify the deficiency and correct it in time. It’s a very tricky though. That’s why I rely on time release broad spectrum fertilizer w Micros inbetween. And even I have problems that are hard to identify and I’m too late to rectify. Just had a defoliation and still wondering what the heck happened

      It’s truly some detective work. The medium is def on the drier side. I was thinking either under watering or more likely a secondary nutrient deficiency.
