Several Japanese tomato cultivars develop a physiological disorder called leaf marginal necrosis, which occurs in relatively young compound leaves. Although the positions of the observed symptoms differ from those caused by inadequate potassium (K+) supplementation, previous studies have reported a relationship between the reduction of K+ content and the… CONTINUE READING
