Question of the Week – Tri Colored Heron

Posted by romeethredge on April 18, 2013

Last week I had a bird for you to indentify and it was the Tri Colored Heron.

This week I have a photo of some corn and some of it looks different. Why is one row a different color and why?

    Looks like phosphorus deficiency.

    The purple row is phosphorus deficient. Perhaps the roots on the row on the left have not reached the starter yet.

    I concure with Steve Parker, that would be my best guess. Mark von Waldner, County Agent
