Yellow Wheat

Nitrogen deficiency in wheat.png

During a wet spring, wheat plants may become yellow. This is usually due to a nitrogen deficiency, but not always. If the plants are examined when the yellowing begins to develop, it is often possible to determine if the deficiency is due to a shortage of nitrogen, sulfur or iron by the appearance and location of the symptoms on the plant.
