Q.Young Veggie Leaves Turning Yellow

Anonymous added on May 20, 2014 | Answered

My cucumber, eggplant, squash, and bell pepper leaves are turning yellow. I built a raised bed this spring and my husband put some manure in it for fertilizer. Could that be the problem?

Was the manure fresh or cured out? Fresh manure could burn the roots and cause issues like this, even death to the plants. You could try flushing the area with water to see if that helps. It could also be some type of fungal issue. Try treating the plants with neem oil.
