Q.Peach Leaf Disease
My peach tree has been healthy for several years and I have canned as many as 50 quarts of peaches last season, but this year half of the leaves are very yellow and even the greener ones are turning yellow with green veins visible. Can you identify the problem?

The tree may be suffering from an iron deficiency. This commonly causes this kind of coloration on the leaves. This normally happens either when the plant is watered too much and the nutrients get leeched away or if the pH is too high. Test the soil and correct any nutrient and pH issues found when testing. Also, make sure that the soil is not too porous and is letting the water run away too quickly.
