Zinc is responsible for enzyme function and chlorophyll in the plants.

Zinc affects the strength of all parts of the plant such as the stems, branches, stalks and leaves.

The tips of leaves appear burnt

Internode spacing is reduced

Growth is stunted

Buds are thin and light to the touch

During flowering buds will start to twist

End yields are small

Solutions:
