About Manganese Deficiencies in Plants
Manganese is essential for strong, healthy growth, and supplementing manganese is particularly beneficial in small grains, soybeans, sweet corn, and vegetable crops. It supports root growth, photosynthesis, pollination, respiration, and disease and stress resistance.
Symptoms of a manganese deficiency often show up as interveinal chlorosis on younger leaves, sometimes with necrotic spots along the leaf veins. Manganese deficiency symptoms are very similar to iron deficiency symptoms and often occur at the same time.
