                    Citrus is prone to iron, manganese and zinc deficiencies. Iron deficiency (chlorosis) shows up as yellow leaves with green veins; manganese as mottling on young leaves and pale areas on green leaves and zinc as yellow mottling and blotching between leaf veins. Treat with chelated fertilizers for each condition. If you are unsure which deficiency exists, there are foliar fertilizers that contain chelates of all three nutrients.
