 Chilli is an important vegetable crop in India that is widely grown for its spicy and pungent qualities. It is grown all over India, although the majority of it is produced in Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, Karnataka, Maharashtra, and Orissa. Because the nutritional capacity of the soil in India varies, the crop will inevitably show nutrient deficiencies when it is cultivated. To avoid economic loss, a grower must recognise, analyse, and comprehend the symptoms and take corrective action. This blog provides a clear picture of the major nutrient deficiency symptoms of the chilli crops and their maintenance.


Nitrogen Deficiency in Chilli

Nitrogen is a major crop nutrient when it is deficient in soil plants show stunted growth, short branches, and older leaves could be found turning light green and under severe incidence, it could turn yellow. Fruit size will be reduced and even chlorotic spots can be noticed.
