Hort with Heart Trace rectifies nutrient deficiencies in poor soils and improves overall plant health. It promotes strong root development and allows optimum uptake of essential nutrients such as iron, manganese, zinc and copper. Trace element deficiency is common in all citrus.
When plants are rapidly growing they may suffer from nutrient or mineral deficiencies. The pH of the soil will also have an effect on a plant’s capacity to access those nutrients. Although you can apply minerals separately you will find that plants showing a manganese deficiency may also be low in iron, zinc and magnesium. I recommend applying a foliar micronutrient spray to all plants showing deficiencies.
Manganese deficiency shows up on younger leaves first, with yellow areas between the main veins in blotches and the centre vein remaining green.
Iron deficiency causes pale yellow leaves and veins that remain green; these symptoms are often seen in coastal sands that are very alkaline.
Magnesium deficiency shows on older leaves that yellow on the midrib with a green V shape forming at the base of the leaf.
