  1. Uniform   chlorosis in older leaves; Stunted growth; Decreased leaf area (smaller,   thicker leaves); Fewer leaves/tillers in extreme situations
    Nitrogen
  2. Purpling   (anthocyanin); Thin, fragile (especially of tillers); Delayed maturity; Leaf   necrosis in older leaves; Stunted growth
    Phosphorus
  3. Reduced   growth is the first symptom seen; Uneven chlorosis and necrosis starting as   small stripes beginning at the leaf tip and migrating to basal tip; Reduced   leaf expansion and shortened internodes
    Potassium
  4. Interveinal   chlorosis; Leaf yellowing at the margins; Smaller, thicker leaves
    Calcium
  5. Interveinal   chlorosis; Necrosis of lower mature leaves; Reduced growth; Poor fruit   development; Reduced yield; bronzing in citrus
    Magnesium
  6. In   monocots: Chlorosis in the form of alternating yellow and green stripes along   leaf blade; In dicots: Chlorosis in a reticulate pattern with dark green   veins and yellow interveinal areas
    Iron
  7. Reduced   growth; Lighter plant color; Uniform chlorosis in new leaves
    Sulfur
  8. Interveinal   chlorosis of new leaves although not as distinct or as uniform as with iron   deficiency; Chlorosis often with rapid necrotic spotting or streaks; Inverted   “v” on the midrib
    Manganese
  9. Interveinal   chlorosis of newer leaves; Bronzing/necrosis of chlorotic leaves;   Reduced/stunted growth; Shortened internodes; Small, abnormally shaped leaves   and rosette formations
    Zinc
  10. Chlorotic   or necrotic lesions on leaf – not uniform; Wilting of leaves at margins and   reduced transpiration; Reduced leaf area
    Chlorine
  11. Leaves   appear bluish-green and then become chlorotic starting at the apical   meristem; Chlorosis then develops down the leaf along both sides of the   midrib; Chlorosis followed by necrosis of leaf tips; New leaves fail to   unroll and become needle-like; Increased tillering in cereals; Wilting in   young leaves
    Copper
  12. Youngest   leaves are misshapen, wrinkled and blue-green in color; Abnormal or retarded   growth of apical growing points and eventual death of terminal growing point
    Boron
  13. Uniform chlorosis
    Nitrogen and Sulfur
  14. Interveinal/uneven chlorosis
    Everything except N, S, P, B
  15. Margin/tip chlorosis
    Potassium and Calcium
  16. Necrosis
    Everything except N, S, Fe, Ca, B
  17. Bronzing
    Magnesium and Zinc
  18. Purpling
    Phosphorus
  19. Blue/green leaves
    Copper and Boron
  20. Rosetting/shortened internodes
    Potassium, Zinc
