Abstract

There were some reports containing information on micronutrients in citrus area (Kausar et al. 1979; Rashid et al. 1991). Upon looking the details, it was found that existing information were limited and unsystematic. The samples were collected disregarding the time and age of plant tissues during sampling which is very important aspect. To establish nutrients deficiency in fruit plants, the age of leaves taken from bearing and non-bearing branches are extremely important. These aspects were mostly lacking from the existing information. Keeping in view the previous work done in Pakistan, more appropriate efforts have been made in this study to investigate soil and plant micronutrients status of citrus growing area on high-pH calcareous soils.
