Pamela felt that the avocado trees were suffering a bit from lime induced chlorosis, as a result I dosed each tree with a dessertspoonful (around 30g) of ultraferro in 9 litres of water and applied to the foliage and the root zone of each tree. I will watch the progress of the trees. I have tested this product before and it was particularly effective on the pear tree in the Old Shop Orchard.

Ultraferro Update 1 week Later

A week after treating the Avocado trees with ultraferro I can already see a difference in the greenness of the leaves. The leaf area between the veins of the leaves have darkened considerably in the two trees most affected. See pics below.

Avocado Tree No 1 update 1 week after treating with Ultraferro to correct lime induced chlorosis.

Avocado Tree No.2 update 1 week after treating with Ultraferro to correct lime induced chlorosis.

Avocado Tree No.3 update 1 week after treatment with Ultraferro. This variety did not seem to be suffering from lime induced chlorosis but was treated anyway, as a sort of control.
