Nitrogen deficiency (N)

Older leaves first turn pale yellow and die with new leaves becoming thinner and longer. Plants often show erect growth habit and fail to attain adequate yield.

Treatment: Applications of N in a semi-mature crop are not recommended for quality reasons. Total N requirement should be applied by the established seedling stage.
