Report Date: 06/17/21

Growing Degree Day since planting: 462

Growing Degree Day since 01/01/21: 926

Growth Stage: V5

Description: A few nutrient defeciency symptoms present. Some purpling on V2 and V3 leaves with some becoming necrotic. This can't be confirmed without tissue sampling as some genetics develop purpling and symtoms almost always disappear as growth continues. Continue to monitor and check for symtoms in the coming weeks.  Some interveinal chlorosis on upper leaves that could be a signal for sulfur defeciency. Again, rainfall and root development can cause these symtoms even if adequate sulfur is available. Tissue sample or monitor as growing conditions improve. Overall, plant health was excellent.
