Q.Kaffir Lime With Yellowing Leaves

flightpath added on October 30, 2011 | Answered

My kaffir lime tree (about feet tall) is having yellow leaves. The leaves would change color from light green to yellow. The change is evenly on a leaf. It used to respond positively with chicken manure, but not in the past 3 months. There are other trees around it, the closest one is about 1 foot away. What should I do?

It sounds like you may have Chlorosis. This article will help with that:

I would also just give it a balanced fertilizer. Chicken manure is mostly nitrogen and there may be an imbalance in the soil.
