Excessive rates of fertilizer, especially soluble salts and nitrogen and potassium, can result in seedling injure indicated by slow or irregular plant growth, yellowing or "burning" of leaves, and death of plants in patches. Whitish fertilizer residues may be noted on the soil surface. Stem necrosis sometimes occurs near the soil line. Symptoms are more acute in dry soil.
