Zinc deficiency (Zn)
Symptoms of zinc deficiency in maize appear as a distinct yellow striping of the leaves. Areas of leaf near the stalk may develop a general white to yellow discolouration (‘whitebud’). In cases of severe deficiency, the plants are stunted due to shortened internodes and the lower leaves show a reddish or yellowish streak about one third of the way from the leaf margin.
Treatment: Foliar application of EPSO Combitop®.
