fertilization on burley tobacco (Nicotiana tabacum (burley type)) - 1440012


Host: burley tobacco (Nicotiana tabacum (burley type) L.)
Descriptor: Damage
Description: Fertilizer injury results from high concentrations of soluble salts and is most pronounced during periods of dry weather. Under such conditions, plants become dehydrated and wilt, develop a yellow color with browning or burning along leaf margins, and may eventually die. Also, a white coating may occur on the soil where fertilizer salts carried to the surface by evaporating water. Seedling injury may result from effects of fertilizers other than salt concentration. For example, ammonia produced from excessive amounts of ammonium fertilizer may cause injury similar to that caused by soluble salts. The use of organic fertilizers has been found to cause damage to stems of young seedlings at or near soil surface. Where high concentrations of soluble salts occur, through watering of the plant bed for two or three consecutive days will usually correct the condition
