NOTE: For the first year donot immidietaly substitute 100% chemical fertilizer with the SIESTO GREEN products, as the soil is used to chemical fertilizer, it may affect the output. So the best way to substitute is by reducing 50% of chemical input in the first year, 25% the following 2nd year, & then another 10% by the 3rd year. After the 3rd year use synthetic fertilizer / inorganic fertilizer if their is a requirement depending on the soil health.

NUTRIENTS DEFICIENCY

NUTRIENT IDENTIFICATION SYMPTOMS SUGGESTED PRODUCT
Nitrogen General symptoms are a uniform light green chlorosis of the leaves, and slow growth resulting in a delayed or sparse ground cover. ACETO Caps
Phosphorus Yellowing may spread from discrete interveinal patches, which typically become cleared of anthocyanin pigment, or may be more general, but often affecting one half of the blade more than the other. PSB Plus
Potash Brown necrotic lesions develop within the chlorotic zones and eventually spread to cover the entire leaf blade. Potash Grow
Sulfur Sulfur deficiency results in a uniform pale green chlorosis throughout the plant. Veins do not retain a green colour, and in many cases, they may be more chlorotic than the interveinal tissue. ALP
Magnesium Interveinal chlorosis of older leaves. The main veins retain a relatively broad margin of dark green tissue, but the minor veins are less well defined, resulting in radial bands of pale tissue between the main veins. ALP
Iron Yellow interveinal chlorosis develops, which is characterised by a sharply contrasting green network of veins. ALP
Boron Boron deficiency affects actively growing tissue, both of the shoots and roots. The first sign is usually a thickening of young leaves. The leaves and stem near the shoot tip are brittle and break easily when bent. ALP
